The North Star Lounge is an intimate music venue and vegan bar, brought to you by the folks at Detroit Street Filling Station and The Lunch Room.

They have a weekly lineup of music and events as follows: Tuesday is LGBTQ Night, Wednesday is Hot Club Jazz, Thursday is Piano Bar, Friday is Bluegrass, and Saturday is Rotating local artists.

The North Star Lounge occupies a historic, red-brick two-story house located at the corner of N. Fifth Ave and Catherine St. The first floor holds a bar and seating. The second floor is an open space with a stage, piano, booths and tables, and a vintage jukebox.The building houses numerous plants and plant-like sculptures that, together with the numerous windows and brick-wall theme, blend indoor and outdoor design elements.

The purpose of the North Star Lounge is three-fold: to provide opportunities for musicians to showcase their talent; to bring people together to enjoy the events and each other and to have fun; and to put Ann Arbor on the map as having the first entirely vegan bar in the state.
