Shaker Night Life

Very few recreation or cultural options existed for Shaker residents within the boundaries of their residential community. Social events, such as parties and dances, were generally hosted in private homes and country clubs. Gruber's Restaurant, located in the Van Aken Shopping Center, was renowned as a gathering place for celebrities, millionaires, writers, lawyers, and art patrons. Pictured above is the restaurant's co-owner, Roman Gruber.
