Right at the corner of Bay and Cumberland, Hemingway’s has become a historic hotspot in Yorkville. With some of the best sangrias in the city, Hemingway’s is the perfect place to grab summer drinks. It’s also known for their large selection of beer, offering 24 beers on tap. They have 3 bars and 4 different patios, including a rooftop. Hemingway’s is more of a casual vibe than other Yorkville spots. And what makes this pub so great is the year-round heated patio.
