Time Out says
When Lost Lake opened, it was billed as a "tiki bar," with all of the tropical decor, rum-forward drinks and colorful garnishes you'd expect. But co-owners Paul McGee and Shelby Allison have since sought to distance Lost Lake from ts original theme, acknowledging the cultural appropriation that's inherent in the asthetic of establishments that serve Mai Tais and play Hawaiian music on their soundsystems. The island vibes and many signature cocktails (including the Tic Tac Taxi, made with rum, coconut, passionfruit and lime) remain intact, but when Lost Lake reopens its indoor space later this year, there will likely be some new items hanging on the walls and an updated playlist to enjoy while you sip your beautifully-garnished beverage. For now, you can enjoy cocktails to-go from a window in front of the Logan Square bar.
