Brothers Chris and Calvin Marty bought the old Marble Bar and reopened it as Best Intentions. The dive bar charm remains, although the bar is a little sleeker and the drinks are much better. Settle into a table on the big back patio, or sidle up to the bar for minty Wondermint Malted shakes, shots of Angostura bitters (they're the only bar anywhere with the bitters on draft) and a list of well-made classics. Fill up on po'boys from chef Kevin Cowens.

I was a big fan of Marble and miss their cheese curds dearly, but Best Intentions is winning me over with their Wondermint cocktail (like a boozy milkshake!) and their perfectly fried po’ boys. The tempura oyster and fried shrimp options are my favorites, and their cajun fries are fresh and fried perfectly. The back patio is still one of the cutest and most chill patios in Logan Square. A great neighborhood bar and a perfect spot to spend a long night.
