Logan Square is an up-and-coming neighborhood just northwest of downtown Chicago. The area is home to many young twenty-somethings that work downtown because of the short commute and public transportation. Many lump Logan Square with the other nearby areas, Wicker Park, Roscoe Village, and Bucktown. Because of their proximity, these neighborhoods are all extremely similar. They’re flooded with young professionals, which is why bars and nightlife are popular. Bars like Lost Lake, Emporium, and the Logan Bar draw attention from people of all walks of life.
Not only does the locale have amazing bars and nightlife, they have some of the best restaurants and attractions in the city. Humboldt Park is a sacred Chicago landmark and its located on the southside of Logan Square. The Whale is the number one restaurant in the area and many families and millennials flock to the area during the day and late night. With a neighborhood as expansive and diverse as Logan Square, everybody can enjoy it to the fullest.
Logan Square is bordered to the north by W. Diversey Avenue and the east by N. Western Avenue. The south is bordered by W. Bloomingdale Avenue and the west is cut off by the CTA train line that runs north and south, just a few blocks east of Cicero Avenue.
The modern sports bar makes other all other sports bars look like a dumpster fire. The elegant paintings and artifacts on the wall provide for a great ambience. Their menu is small but their beautiful outdoor area makes up for it.
Looking for a slightly upscale dinner with an amazing, colorful atmosphere? Then The Whale is your place. Deriving from the gambling term, The Whale, is open for breakfast until late night where their menu shrinks a bit.
Don’t be fooled by their name, Bixi has much more than just beer. Their menu is mainly made up of asian cuisine along with other small plates. The environment is amazing with an upstairs patio and indoor area with a retractable roof and two nature walls.
Nashville meets Chicago with Parson’s. Brewing their own beer with Revolution, Parson’s is a great spot to enjoy on a beautiful Chicago summer weekend. Their outdoor patio has a bar, ping pong tables, and serves some of the best fried chicken sandwiches.
The brewpub downstairs is where you get that delicious food but their taproom upstairs is where you get that much needed beer. The taproom does a massive amount of private events and is often closed so check their website before heading out. Amazing food and amazing beer, it’s that simple.
