Started by Hank Wolek in the 1950’s, Woleks Famous Moustache club is a genuine real American moustache organization dating back to the old days of Hank Wolek’s smokey saloon and sports bar, Hank’s Café.

 

Rooted in history of moonshine smuggling, Hank’s Café emerged from prohibition as a popular place in 50’s downtown Syracuse, New York.

 

Even the press reported on Hank’s Moustache club and what his members were doing, which was usually winning masculine size sports trophies in Upstate, NY tournaments for foot ball, soft ball, base ball, bowling, and other atheletics. Read the real newspaper clippings below abut the club and Hank's Aces.

Hank's Mustache Club has re-opened at the Syracuse Polish Home. Click here to become a member.
