There is so much happening at this quirky bar that it has rapidly become a local favorite. Old school typewriters adorn a few tables so that guests can write out fun messages on index cards. The food menu also happens to be typed on index cards, making them a creative staple of the establishment. With frequent live performances and guest bartenders, Collins is a must visit.

Avondale Brewing Co.

Way back in the 1910s, Miss Fancy the Elephant was an Avondale attraction. Now, almost 100 years later, Avondale Brewing Company has resurrected her by making her the mascot of their business. But, that’s just one example of this place’s rich history. Cleverly, there are brews named for each significant moment from the brewery’s background. Swing by for a tour of the facility or enjoy a drink in the taproom, which often has live entertainment.
