Share the #YpsiLove with family and friends this winter in Ypsilanti. From shopping, to live music, to trying the tastiest lattes, Ypsilanti offers it all and so much more! Get started with these Ypsi experiences:
1. Dine in at a delicious restaurant
Go big with a nice dinner for two at C. King & Co. Cafe, or splurge on appetizers and combos at Maiz and Bobcat Bonnie's. Order from an all-vegetarian menu at Gora’s Grill. We suggest surprising your loved ones with donuts from Dom Bakeries. No matter what you’re craving, you can find it in Ypsi.
2. Cozy up around the fireplace
Order a Michigan brew at Arbor Brewing Company and stay toasty by the outdoor firepits. Also featuring an indoor fireplace, ABC is an ideal spot for a cozy date out. Bellflower’s heated table and heat lamps will keep you warm while dining safely during a memorable evening out.
3. Cocktails for two
Cocktails or non-alcoholic beverages make for a perfect evening activity while out on the town. Find a table for two at Mash Ypsilanti and order colorful cocktails or specialty drinks. Our other recommendations: Keystone Bar & Arcade for cosmic and arcade vibes complete with featured drinks, or 734 Brewing Company for Ypsi-brewed beer in historic Depot Town.
