There are so many neighborhood bars in Chicago that it takes something special for a tavern’s name to carry beyond the zip code. Andersonville’s Hopleaf has that something special. You’re likely to find as many people who walked here as you are to see commuters, interested in checking out what’s new on the 200-plus mostly Belgian beer menu and stuffing themselves with the bar’s famous mussels in the process. If you’re coming on a weekend, expect it to be packed with a boisterous, welcoming crowd.
