2859 N. Oakland Ave.
Because Axelâ€™s is in walking distance of UWM, the bar usually features a fair share of college students blowing their financial aid money on pitchers of cheap beer. However, because Axelâ€™s has been around for so many decades, it maintains a neighborhood watering hole appeal as well and attracts drinkers who havenâ€™t stepped on a college campus in many years.
Comfortable and no-frills, Axelâ€™s is a good choice for a game of pool, darts, video bowling or a place to belly up to the bar for a beer and a shot.
Menu: Axelâ€™s serves 22 different beers on tap that change regularly. Many are from Wisconsin breweries like New Glarus, Sprecher and Central Waters Brewing Co.
When to go: Axelâ€™s has a special every night of the week. Mondays feature happy hour prices all night; Tuesdays are pint night; Wednesdays is ladiesâ€™ night (all women pay $1 for any drink from 9 p.m. to midnight); Thursday is pitcher night; Friday are Wisconsin beer night; Saturday is Budweiser "bowling pin" bottle night and Sunday is discount cocktails night.
Dress: Very casual.
Don't miss: The Silver Strike Bowling video game is popular with Axelâ€™s goers.
Parking: Street parking only. Good luck.
