Ladies and gentlemen we introduce “The Black Pearl”. Much more than a seafood and martini bar. The Black Pearl evokes the appeal of a classy yet unpretentious boutique venue, perfect for socializing and entertaining. The Black Pearl is a rare gem, the kind of place discovered and adopted for its charm and welcoming ambience.

From inception, the idea behind The Black Pearl has been to reinvent the experience of “comfortable and cool” dining and lounging in the perfect setting of the vibrant heart of downtown Ann Arbor. We offer the best espresso machine for the money in town!

The Black Pearl is beautiful and inviting, a place where locals gather and travelers seek out for outstanding food and par excellent service. Magnificent service is the top priority. At The Black Pearl our goal is to make guests feel like they are being looked after. Our bar and wait staff have been selected for what their parents have taught them…… to treat people with respect. The Black Pearl has a selection of exotic drinks, which The Black Pearl’s own bartenders add to every month. If you have a favorite, our staff will make it perfectly for you or make it again. Our wine list is unpretentious, affordable and growing.

The stress on quality is immediately apparent with one bite of the food. We are constantly striving to be at the forefront of delivering a progressive, upscale seafood-inspired menu. We invite you to experience chef Gabe and his teams’ culinary creations.

After 9pm the mood shifts. The lights dim and the music rises. Whether a live band, our eclectic and diverse in-house playlist or a DJ, the evening is always infused with specialty selected diverse and always evolving music to enhance the mood. People tend to either start or finish their evenings here. The menu, entertainment, ambiance, service and/or the exotic martini list are only a few of the amenities that appeal to The Black Pearl clientele.
