Have been there many times and have never had a bad experience. Always a good time and a variety of entertainment. Billy Joe Shaver was awesome. An up close and personal experience.

A nice cozy place for music. And plenty of other things to do afterwards in downtown Ann Arbor

We have been going to the Ark since it was just a coffee house on Hill street. It has always been a friendly and comfortable place to listen to great music. Still brings in wonderful talent, from stars to unknowns to locals.

The Ark is such a great place to see a show, seats 400 but feels smaller.

Small, intimate with generally good seating for all. The biggest pain (as with the Michigan theater) is having to buy a "membership" in order to get drinks etc. The location is great downtown with good choices nearby for after concert meals or drinks. If you can get a parking spot in the small lot behind of William Street, I recommend trying to do so.
