Pubs in Andersonville / Edgewater Overview

Neighboring hoods Andersonville and Edgewater can veer cutesy, but nobody can doubt their drinking scenes. Pubs in Andersonville / Edgewater include historical dives and insanely popular gastropubs that have fans all over town.

One of the best-known spots in the city, Hopleaf was a gastropub before craft beers got trendy. These days, a significant expansion relieves a bit of the constant crowds, all jockeying for position for one of the bar’s hundreds of specialty beers. After enjoying the spot’s Belgian food (mussels, anyone?), the clientele tends to drift over to Simon’s, a friendly pub with a noisy jukebox. Around since 1934, the pub plays homage to Andersonville’s roots as a gateway for Scandinavian immigrants with its Swedish flags and Viking paraphernalia.

Andersonville/Edgewater pubs aren’t just yuppie gathering spots, however. Divey spots like the Edgewater Lounge and Farragut’s aren’t out of place next to the pricier Hopleaf and Simon’s. This is still friendly, civilized territory, and even grungy exteriors contain friendly laid-back regulars. For those who want a little bit more spice, Carol’s Pub down the street is something straight out of Roadhouse, down to the sawdust floor and boot-scootin’ live music. Yuppies may have colonized this picturesque part of the city, but Andersonville and Edgewater aren’t willing to give up all of its colorful nightlife characters quite yet.
