Veterans of the Whistler and Boiler Room joined together to open this bar. One of the two rooms here looks a lot like the Violet Hour, which makes sense since cocktails (specifically gin cocktails) are a focus of the place. The other room is less loungey and truer to what Scofflaw is, which is a top-notch, friendly neighborhood joint.

Ah, Scofflaw. This cocktail bar has one of my favorite menus in Chicago and some seriously great sides for munching on at the bar. The vintage decor is nothing to scoff at (har, har) either.
One of my go to's for good cocktails is Scofflaw–especially when I know I want a good gin cocktail and a delicious brunch. The fries are an absolute must, then encourage everyone at your table to order a different cocktail. With a beautifully illustrated menu perfectly describing each cocktail, there's something for everyone.
Scofflaw in Logan Square is the best. Grab one of the coveted seats outside with friends and order a little bit of everything, as the portions are small, but tasty. The restaurant and bar is known for its gin as well as its swizzles, and you'd be remiss not to try one.
I’m normally a beer only kind of gal but if I am drinking a cocktail, I’m drinking at Scofflaw. I would have been sold on the dim candle lit lounge, Motown playlist and killer fries alone. But it’s the ever changing cocktail menu of delicious and boozy drinks that makes this place my go to. From a hot buttered rum to a summer swizzle, this place hasn’t let me down yet.
