Bar tenders are great! The guy there will make anything you want, and if they don't have something the first time you ask, they'll have it the next time you're there!

“Fun atmosphere”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I went here for a first date to grab some drinks, I thought the atmosphere was great. The drinks were good and affordable. I would recommend this place for a fun night out. It didn't ever get too busy, but it was lively. It's a little hard to find if you aren't familiar with the area.

“Different, but very cool.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Yes this place is under a bank so is dark, but it is pretty different and cool for the Ann Arbor area. There are 2 pool tables that are nice with a loungy feel and then a large bar area with tables and chairs. It seems there's almost always some sort of happy hour drink special. I also went to this place last October before Halloween which was awesome. They had the place decorated pretty creatively with scary goblins! I definitely recommend checking this place out now and again in the fall!

“dingy and crowded”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I wanted to like bab's b/c the idea was so cool, but it's so crowded and it's dark and dingy, even after they banned smoking. I just don't like the atmosphere.

“Very cool, relaxed”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Nice but vaguely hidden bar in downtown Ann Arbor. More adult crowd than some of the undergrad bars, but still busy enough to be a lot of fun. A few pool tables and a nice big area to sit/stand. Good bar access.
