Need a small study break or a place to meet up with friends?
Whether it's for a small break in between studying, or if you just need a place to just catch up with friends, Starbucks Coffee, Espresso Royale, and Bubble Island are the main places people go. Starbucks Coffee and Espresso Royale are coffee shops that also sell a little bit of snack food. Bubble Island serves tapioca bubble tea; they have a variety of milk tea, green tea, and black coffees to help make your studying a little easier, or just to have a good drink on a warm or cold day.
The two main clubs in Ann Arbor are Necto and Studio 4. Necto is located on Liberty, right next to TK Wu, while Studio 4 is located farther from campus, on S. Fourth Ave. Many undraising events, and many of the parties thrown by the Asian fraternities/sororities happen at Necto.
