A hiddenish gem in Logan Square, this bar lies around the corner from the Whistler. If you can't squeeze your butt into that tiny cocktail haven, head over here for reasonably priced drinks and eclectic roster of bands and DJs. But with a capacity at around 100, this joint is pretty tight. All the better for cozying up to a stranger when the Frisky Grannies DJs spin '40s hits on the first Thursday of every month. The second Thursday of every month, the Fabulous Ladies of Fitness bring a crate of lite-rock, disco and cheese pop.

In a neighborhood that's rapidly growing and becoming so congested with the newest "hip" bar and restaurant. Cole's is unpretentious, eclectic crowd, fun ambiance and the drink prices are reasonable.
Cole's in Logan Square is a cool, dive-y hangout where you're sure to hear some good local music or catch an entertaining open mic comedy night. There's pretty much always something going on, as you can see from the crews of people hanging out smoking out front.
This longtime Logan Square bar is as much a place to drink as it is a place to be seen. On any given night, you'll find a band making a racket in the back room while the neighborhood's creative class downs tallboys in the front. That guy who plays bass in the band you saw at the Bottle last month? He's drinking here at least one night a week.
