War Eagle Supper Club officially demolished

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Auburn's iconic War Eagle Supper Club, housed in a building that stood for nearly 80 years, has officially been demolished to make way for a future mixed-use development.

The Supper Club, where generations of Auburn students went for live music and late-night entertainment, closed at the end of New Year's Eve.

The building was built in 1937 and operated as a brothel after World War II.

The building housed Stoker's Steakhouse in the 1950s, and later became a pizza joint under the ownership of H.H. Lambert.

There is still hope that the War Eagle Supper Club will open up a new location within the next couple of months.
