Henry the Hatter is one of the most beloved establishments in all of Metro Detroit. The clientele of the oldest hat shop in the United States, owned by Paul Wasserman, is a who’s who of musicians, politicians, and even a president.

For this special episode of the Daily Detroit Happy Hour Podcast, Sven Gustafson stopped into the iconic store to talk to Paul.

Paul shares how his lease got unexpectedly ended, the history of the place (including how his father came to buy it), and we even touch on the future plans for this piece of living Detroit history that has roots back to 1893.
