"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee.com is back for another round! The whole month of February, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun bars and club articles -- including guides, unique features, drink recipes and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!
The votes are in and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best: Bars & Clubs, 2009. The results of this readers' poll, including an editors' pick, are available in this series of articles that run all month long in the Bars and Clubs section of OnMilwaukee.com.
Last year Paddy's Pub took the cake, but this year it seems tastes have change, as the readers of OnMilwaukee.com chose Hooligan's Super Bar as their favorite bar on or near North Avenue.
Hoolie's is an East Side staple that's served more than one generation of hungry and thirsty Milwaukeeans. With televisions lining the bar downstairs and a more casual, less bar feel upstairs, it's a slightly more refined way to watch a Packers, Brewers or Bucks game -- especially if you're hungry for brunch, lunch or dinner.
Their beer selection is plentiful, too, with esoteric micro and macro brews always on tap.
During the summer, the outdoor patio is a fun place to dine and casually take in the view of the bustling East Side (and wave to us at OnMilwaukee.com, kitty corner from the restaurant).
Hooligan's is a great corner bar and an even better place to watch a game or play trivia.
In their words, "Let our quasi competent and obsequious staff help make your visit something other than the usual."
