About The Pretzel Bell

The Pretzel Bell originally opened its doors in 1934 and became the campus watering hole of choice for nearly 50 years. Popular with students, athletes, professors, campus groups and Ann Arbor townies, the Pretzel Bell was a legend. Today, the legend has returned after closing more than 30 years ago. We look forward to evoking memories of past generations and introducing new fans to the famous Pretzel Bell experience.

Our menu is a modern take on traditional American comfort food. Our University of Michigan inspired restaurant has two floors as well as the largest street side presence in Ann Arbor. The interior is made up of historic, reclaimed Detroit wood including gym floors and old bleachers. Decades of Michigan memorabilia fill the walls and cases, while the decor is warm, upscale casual. Both floors offer the highest quality service, food, drinks, and atmosphere.

The upstairs and downstairs will both serve the “soon to be famous” Pretzel Bell menu, while the downstairs will transform into a lounge atmosphere after 10pm. The first floor will feature an open kitchen and a large Bell that will ring throughout as the names of those celebrating their birthdays are called and patrons cheer! Old school cocktails, beers that were cherished throughout the history of Pretzel Bell, new artisan cocktails and an extensive list of premium craft beers will be available.

We are the perfect destination to watch your favorite sporting event, entertain clients in one of our private dining rooms, enjoy a romantic date in a cozy booths, and always the place to celebrate your birthday! With our one of a kind atmosphere, food, service and deeply rooted University of Michigan connections, the Pretzel Bell is the premier dining and drinking destination in Michigan!

Pretzel Bell restaurant returning to Ann Arbor

Now, 31 years after the Pretzel Bell closed, a group of U-M athletes and alumni, including Fritz Seyferth, Bruce Zenkel, Bruce Elliott, Dugan Fife and Andy Mignery, is working with restaurateurs Jon Carlson, Chet Czaplicka and Greg Lobdell – the team behind Lena, Habana, Jolly Pumpkin, Grizzly Peak, Blue Tractor and Mash – to reopen the Pretzel Bell in downtown Ann Arbor.

Crain’s Detroit Business

Pretzel Bell to open in Ann Arbor

The group plans to transform the 8,000-square-foot space that houses the Latin-inspired Lena and Habana into a completely new dining and drinking destination that recollects memories of Ann Arbor’s past and welcomes a new generation of fans.
