The Hermit Club

Founded in 1904, the Hermit Club is the nation’s oldest continuously operating private club devoted to amateur performing arts. Located in the heart of Cleveland’s theater district as part of the Hofbrauhaus Cleveland complex, the Hermit Club features an eclectic and enchanting atmosphere that’s perfect for relaxing, entertaining, taking the spotlight or enjoying as a spectator.

The Hermit Club is home to both amateur and semi-professional actors, singers, musicians, performers and other artists, as well as those who enjoy watching the performances. It is actively dedicated to serving the Cleveland-area community through events, fundraisers and other activities that make a difference.

Throughout its history, members of the Hermit Club have enjoyed the thrills of performing, applauding, laughing and spending time with fellow Hermits and friends. Whether center stage, backstage or in the audience, the Hermit Club has something for everyone. We invite you to experience it for yourself!
