Monroe Avenue in the City
Entertainment & the Arts > Entertainment Districts > Monroe Avenue in the City
Stretching from the Inner Loop to Culver Road, Monroe Avenue has a funky, eclectic style with deep roots in hippie culture. The avenue serves as “Main Street” for the neighborhood. Urban energy is evident around the clock. Shops are open late on weekends, offering unusual clothing, shoes, poster art, jewelry, antiques and used books. College students frequent the area’s sports bars and nightclubs—and then stop at its late-night eateries to refuel. Night spots along Monroe Avenue include Acme Bar & Pizza, Bug Jar, Lola, Monty’s Krown, J.D. Oxford’s, Jeremiah’s Tavern, Sports Page and Woody’s on Monroe.
