A new intimate music venue featuring vegan fare is opening in Ann Arbor.

North Star Lounge's grand opening is Oct. 1.

North Star's name was inspired by Harriet Tubman, and hopes to be a symbol of hope and a positive future.

The venue associated with Detroit Street Filling Station, which is next door, and The Lunch Room, will showcase local talent across music genres with themed nights. Tuesday is LGBTQ Night, Wednesday is Hot Club Jazz, Thursday is Piano Bar, Friday is Bluegrass, and Saturday is rotating local artists.
