Avondale

Learn about Avondale

With its location right next to the Chicago River and Railroads, Avondale attracted many different industries and warehouses during its inception. The neighborhood has a very different feel to it today though, as it has turned into an ideal place to live and offers some hidden gem restaurants and breweries. Avondale was originally settled by Polish immigrants and you can still enjoy some authentic Polish food at the amazing Staropolska, but its ethnic culture does not stop there; take in the vintage charm and food at Mirabella’s Italain Cuisine or try some new modern Korean-American food at Parachute, Avondale truly embodies the cultural diversity of Chicago. The old warehouses that used to make up most of Avondale have not gone to waste, the neighborhood has not only enjoyed some great new developments in their place but it has attracted some unique breweries that have given Avondale a new vibrant feel. Metropolitan Brewing is a site to see with its rustic vibes and views of the river, Revolution Brewing and Taproom on Kedzie is a Chicago Staple or you can go pick up your own craft beer to take home at boutique craft beer shop, The Beer Temple. Along with some of its craft beer attractions, Avondale is well known for its high quality coffee shops. Every street seems to have its own unique coffee shop, like The Avondale Coffee Club. No matter what you are looking for, Avondale has it!
