Neighborhoods Avondale/Crestwood


The hippest haven in the ‘ham.

Originally built to be a company town for Avondale Mills, the neighborhood is now an emerging nightlife and entertainment hotbed. The newest restaurants, breweries and live music venues make Avondale one place not to me missed.


Art, antiques, retro style and unique gifts dominate the shopping landscape in Avondale, guaranteeing you’ll find something that’s unlike anything else.


The neighborhood really comes to life after dark when local mixologists start crafting amazing cocktails while live music fills the air.


You can go with a fancy restaurant or choose from one of the local dives, but no matter your preference, you won’t be disappointed. Give Fancy's on Fifth a try. We think you'll enjoy this relaxed burger & oyster joint with chic tin ceilings, exposed brick walls and a marble topped bar.


Stroll the bustling sidewalks or enjoy some quiet time in a nearby park. There are any number of ways to soak in Avondale vibe.
