Here are the 10 best things to do in Logan Square (okay, with a couple little detours in Avondale and Humboldt Park, technically).

At Longman & Eagle, there are old fashioneds, stirred slowly and carefully behind a dark, gorgeous bar. And there are flannel shirts, and mustaches, and Grandma sweaters. Truth is, the folks working here are some of the friendliest and most professional hipsters you’ll ever meet. Dig in at the most accessible Michelin-starred restaurant in the city.
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.
