Fondly remembered over three decades after it shut down, the Pretzel Bell makes its triumphant return to Ann Arbor, thanks to a group of UM alums that have been working with owners Jon Carlson, Greg Lobdell and Chet Czaplicka. Originally opened in 1934, the Pretzel Bell became the prime drinking destination for the college crowd, and instituted a tradition of standing on a table and chugging a beer for students celebrating their 21st birthday. However, for those looking to relive old times, except for the name,  the new restaurant is not unaffiliated with the old drinking hot spot.
