Norse Bar

The latest sign of the emergence of Clark and Devon, this storefront bar offers a wide array of craft beers (12 on tap, many at just $5) for Edgewater folks who want to avoid the crowds (and the attitude) of Hopleaf. There’s no food, but there’s plenty of Wii. Why “Norse”? When co-owners Ben Buhr and Ian Andrusyk moved from Bucktown, friends suggested “Norse” for their trek north. But when we asked our supremely laid-back bartender about it, he shrugged: “We needed a name.”

Fantastic neighborhood bar at Devon & Clark. Owners have done a fantastic job with the space and the bartenders pour inexpensive pints of the greatest craft beers. Liquor selection is fantastic and there are tall boys if you want regular domestics!

This Craft Beer Bar is the best. From Yrivia on Tuesdays to Sunday Funday AMC binge tv.
