Best of Ann Arbor

Jerusalem Garden

Packed with culinary destinations, it is easy to get lost in the ranging variety of options for food on Liberty Street.  When wandering down this happy part of town, many locations stick out, but when it comes to Ann Arbor’s best spot for Mediterranean food, look no further than Jerusalem Garden.

Zingerman’s Deli

Recently voted one of America’s best delis and one of America’s best Jewish delis, it’s no surpri

Blank Slate Creamery

After having won Best Ice Cream in Ann Arbor two years in a row, Blank Slate Creamery needs little introduction. The family-owned shop uses only fresh ingredients from local vendors and farms to craft its superb ice cream, an effort which results in mind-blowing flavor and creaminess.

Good Time Charley's

Located at one of the busiest corners of South University - a hub for food, entertainment and nightlife- sits Good Time Charley’s, an energetic environment where food, friends, sports and drinks come together.

Rick's American Cafe

Rick’s American Cafe is the equivalent of a bumper sticker that says “I went out one night in Ann Arbor and all I got was this stupid hangover.” This is the place to get drunk, dance with some strangers and wake up the next morning to a flurry of texts asking how last night went.

Zaragon West

Of all the new lofts and apartment buildings that have sprung up in Ann Arbor in the past decade, Zaragon stands out among the rest.

Campus Corner

A hole in the wall. Literally. An underground cavern with foam puzzle piece floors and a grand assortment of snacks, sprites, and soda. Campus Corner is the quintessential stop for students looking for something to quench their thirst or fill that tailgate need for a Natty Light.

Literati Bookstore

It’s been a big year for Literati Bookstore. Last March, owners Mike and Hilary Gustafson published “Notes from a Public Typewriter,” a compilation of the anonymous messages left on a typewriter inside the store.

PNC Bank

Banking doesn’t have to be a chore — PNC proves that. With over 10 ATMs and six branches spread throughout Ann Arbor, it’s easy to make a deposit or get some quick cash. The bank’s app streamlines services, allowing customers to transfer money and check balances on the go.

Aveda Institute

Imagine yourself in a misty jungle, the trees shrouded in warm clouds. It smells like flowers, you’re more relaxed than you’ve ever been before. You look hot, having gotten a fresh blowout and haircut. This, my friends, is what it is like to get styled at the Aveda Institute.
