Best Bar for Lunch, After-Hours Place, Beer Selection and Top-Shelf Liquor Selection (Washtenaw County)
Ashley's

With more than 55 different single-malt scotches alone; Ashley’s was a shoo-in for Best Top-Shelf Liquor Selection. It was also tough for any other bar to compete for Best Beer selection: 60 different brews on tap is a feat few other places attempt to boast.

Ashley’s is a pub that takes its calling seriously. It offers so many beverage options that it’s sure to please even a picky patron. Located right off State Street, it has integrated itself into the U of M campus as a meeting place for students and professors. Its proximity to campus and true English pub atmosphere make it a prime choice for lunchers. The menu isn’t neglected: Munchies and meals surpass the standard bar fare. Fresh soups and breads offer students a perfectly priced quick bite on their break, and assured Ashley’s a spot as best bar for lunch. A well-stocked jukebox is the sound track for a laid-back afternoon or evening, and the staff keeps up with the demands of the weekend-night capacity crowds. It seems that fans of Ashley’s just don’t want to leave; crowds stubbornly stay put past last call. It’s reason enough to select Ashley’s as the best after-hours bar in Washtenaw County, even if it’s just wishful thinking.
