Best Intentions overtook a popular corner tavern spot in Logan Square and is now an ersatz dive bar, down to freshly installed wood paneling and chintzy lighting. But the “Fancy Cocktails” are the real deal, from alcoholic malts (Wondermint Malted) to improved classics (Horchata Margarita). Once you’re seated in the patio with a cold one, it’s easy—and pretty cheap—to stay for hours.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Horchata Margarita or a can of Hamm’s. Both are acceptable.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Angostura is on draft here, should you find yourself craving an especially bitter shot.
