"The partners decided they needed something different. “I wanted to emulate the old cocktail houses of the 1920s and ’30s. I thought (New York’s) Stork Club was cool, so
I started playing around with other types of birds and we came up with a raven.”

"We didn't know how much Main Street would embrace craft cocktails," says Paquin, "but our business is about 50/50 with food and drink. Our staff is what sets us apart. Everyone has input into our drink menu, which we redo every three months, working through suggestions each week until we narrow down our final choices."

News that Old Town owner Chris Pawlicki planned to open a new bar-restaurant in the former Full Moon space on South Main Street generated a lot of enthusiasm last fall in Ann Arbor. Less excited about Pawlicki’s plans to open Stella’s on Main was the owner of another bar-restaurant of a similar name in Perrysburg, Ohio. The announcement prompted some communication among the bars’ respective lawyers, culminating in a new name for the Ann Arbor endeavor. Now Pawlicki and his business partners have abandoned the initial name and plan on opening The Ravens Club by March.
