This week’s outdoor patio of the week takes us up to Kirkwood Bar & Grill, which is located at 2934 N. Sheffield on the border of Lakeview and Lincoln Park. A quintessential neighborhood tavern, Kirkwood is situated on a tree-lined stretch of Sheffield Avenue, which somehow makes for a quiet, low-key atmosphere, even despite being in the heart of such a vibrant part of Lakeview. Like much of the Lakeview neighborhood and the nearby parts of Lincoln Park, an attractive mix of single-family homes, vintage apartment buildings, and newly developed three- and four-flats fill the real estate landscape around Kirkwood, while the area’s population is mostly known for being home to young professionals, college students, and even a blend of young and growing families.
Aside from the patio that lines Oakdale Avenue, Kirkwood also has one of our favorite beer gardens in all of Lakeview, which features an enclosed and private ambiance and plenty of seating for larger groups. If you’re familiar with other Four Corners Taverns establishments, the food here is right on par with most with a couple slight variations. The Korean Steak tacos and the Crispy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich are two of our favorite menu items, but there’s plenty of other great options that are perfect for happy hour, dinner, or even brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
So, if you live in the downtown area and happen to be up north or are looking for a new neighborhood spot to try out this summer with exceptional outdoor seating, you can’t go wrong with Kirkwood Bar & Grill! To learn more about Kirkwood, visit their website here>>>
