Friendly corner tap with killer burgers.
The Orbit Room
Friendly Avondale bar with tiki-themed outdoor dining. The menu of above-average bar food includes house-made soups, pizza, and Baja fish tacos.
Reed's Local
After the purchase of bare-bones Avondale watering hole Wally's Lounge—owned and operated for decades by its namesake, an elderly European charmer with an encyclopedic knowledge of dirty jokes and a bar stocked with perverted gag toys—my worst fear was that it would be gutted and transformed into a highfalutin' fancy-pants craft cocktail bar (see: Logan Square). Luckily, new owner Joel Hill—along with brother Trevor and wife Melissa—have kept the dive-bar concept intact. They spiffed the joint up a little bit by adding more seating, some fresh coats of paint, and a couple vintage arcade games, as well as giving it the name Reed’s Local—in tribute to the Hill brothers’ late father—but it remains a good neighborhood spot to visit for a cheap-as-hell shot-and-beer combo (an Old Crow and can of Hamm’s is only four bucks) and some pleasant run-ins with locals. —Luca Cimarusti
Small Bar
Cozy, friendly corner bar with better-than-average pub grub, an impressive beer selection, and an impenetrable dartboard.
Sharp Avondale spot serving burgers and other bar food.
