Hop Leafís bar had a 1950ís feel to it, with large storefront windows overlooking Clark Street bring plenty of natural light in the establishment, sturdy mahogany bar, textured ceiling, and old school cash register. Selection was large, concentrating on Belgian beers. Bartender would give you a sample of draft if you asked, and if you are an attractive woman you can get many samples without asking for them from the bartender. There was a feel of beer snobbiness while sitting amoungst "I drink cool beer and I am cool" clientele. I had a good beer experience there, but headed south to Carolís Pub for a true Chicago Old Style dive bar experience afterwards.

Probably my favorite bar/restaurant in Chicago. They might have the best selection of beers in Chicago. Food is great, and staff is friendly and helpful.

Easy to get there from downtown. Epic Belgian and local selection, also featuring and off-menu menu. Nice food and ambiance make it a must stop in Chicago!

Really awesome beer bar with a focus on Belgians. They also had fresh zombie dust on tap when I was there. Tonnes of taps, great service and really good food. This is a good one.

This place is sick. Crazy amount of beer available, including plenty of really hard to find beers. Generous with tap tastings. Awesome beer drinking atmosphere. Just go here.

Small bar with great city feel. Servers were a little cold, but thatís the big city. Food looked really good and people raved about it. Most importantly they had great beers on tap that bridge the gap between Ohio & NE and west of Chicago. Of course they also had the great Chicago brews and great Belgiums.

Really love the Hopleaf. Easily accessible, and the larger space is certainly more accommodating (even if here a spot at the bar is a tough get). Over the course of many hours with a powerful co-conspirator, I was continually agog at the beer options. Crazy good locals, rare Belgians, national craft delights, the full gamut of styles too. Terrific service even when hellaciously crowded. What really puts this place in the front rank is the amazing food. Absolutely superb, best place in Chicago as far as Iím concerned.

Hopleaf, the name speaks for itself around Andersonville. There are several great beer bars on Clark street such as Jerryís and Acre to name a couple but no one can hold a torch to Hopleaf.
Back in 2011 my then fiancť and I were thinking of moving to Andersonville from the south side to be closer to her work and the very first place we tried was Hopleaf as I had read several reviews raving about it. I was sold immediately with the extensive selection on draft, the friendly bartenders, the classy old school feel of the atmosphere, and the delicious food. I canít believe it took me so long to write a review but to sum it all up, if you like craft beer and live in Chicago and havenít been to Hopleaf, you need to make a trip NOW!
