Fifty-six taps for draft beer and cider will attempt to quench the thirsts of patrons at Sleeping Village in Avondale. The bar, from the owners of Logan Square’s The Whistler cocktail bar, opened Wednesday morning. During the day it’ll serve Dark Matter Coffee and offer WiFi to cater to laptoppers. The space morphs into more of a bar at night and features a stage for live music and a dance floor where a DJ can help ignite the action.
Ownership converted a 8,000-square-foot cabinet store into a massive beer bar with room for 175 inside. A patio, which will stay open in the winter, features picnic tables and has room for 150. There’s no kitchen, but Sleeping Village does serve a few baked goods during the daytime.
Beer lovers can expect local brews, as wells as imported Belgiums and French selections. Ownership has been working on the bar since 2016 when news first surfaced.
Look through the photos below. After a decade of serving Logan Square at The Whistler, ownership has a new baby. Sleeping Village is now open.
Sleeping Village, 3734 W. Belmont Avenue, open 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday through Friday; 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Friday.
