The Heavy Feather dedicates an entire night to the Manhattan. On Mondays, the Logan Square bar has four variations, including the reliable house Manhattan (offered every day) with High West Double Rye, Dolin Rouge and house bitters. It's smooth but has a distinctive rye bite with a fruity finish. You'll also find two rotating Manhattans, and you can always count on a lower priced "Blue Collar" Manhattan. $6–$12.
