When we think of Aretha Franklin, we think of powerhouse vocals and iconic-grade shade:

And now, according to sources, we will soon know her for the next hotspot in nightlife! Yes, the Queen of Soul is looking to open a night club in her hometown of Detroit. She tells the press:

I’m interested in doing a small nightclub downtown, and he (Bruce Schwartz, Detroit relocation ambassador for Bedrock Real Estate Services) and I have been talking about this for a couple of years now and I’m just letting him know I’m still interested. In my retirement plan, I’d like to have a small club here in Detroit.

Although reports are saying that the Queen has decided on the name “Aretha’s,” if we may, we’d like to offer a few title suggestions for consideration:

1.  The House of Shade

2. The Legend’s Lounge

3. The Powerhouse Pub

4. Rock Steady Rum Bar

5. Pattie, Who?

6. Dionne, Who?

7. The Queen’s Quarters

It’s just jokes, guys! In all seriousness, we think this is a great business endeavor and cannot wait to be invited to the grand opening.

TELL US: Are you excited for Aretha Franklin’s night club?
