Start Up | Episode | The Schvitz / Detroit, MI
Paddy Lynch, a funeral director by trade, has always been fascinated by historic properties. So, when the opportunity to buy a storied landmark and cultural institution for nearly 100 years, it was a dream come true. The Schvitz comes with a gloriously notorious reputation as a bathhouse frequented by Prohibition-era “Purple Gang” mobsters. Open to members and guests since 1930.
