North Oakland Avenue is home to a range of establishments to indulge.
When Camp Bar opened in mid-November, it became the sixth bar, pub, wine bar or restaurant to double as a bar on North Oakland Avenue.
A front page splash on this week's Shepherd Express labeled Shorewood as a place with an emerging nightlife.
"Perhaps what’s most surprising about Camp is its location," the Shepherd's article reads. "It’s the type of high-concept bar that would fit right in on the trendiest strips of the East Side or Bay View, yet it’s housed at 4044 N. Oakland Ave. in Shorewood, a historically quiet suburb better known for its family mindset and high-ranking school system than any sort of organized nightlife."
But, with a variety of other options nearby — chiefly in Riverwest and Milwaukee's east side, is Shorewood really emerging as a nightlife destination?
The Shepherd’s piece dove more deeply into the booming business district on Oakland Avenue — with restaurants like NaNa Asian Fusion and popular spots like Alterra sprouting up in recent years, but it still begs the question: Has Shorewood truly become a destination for nightlife?
