There’s a lot to love at the new spot from Dustin Drankiewicz (Moneygun, Dusek’s), whose south-side Milwaukee roots have inspired one of the best new bars in Logan Square. Thanks to extensive R&D, The Pink Squirrel’s menu of throwback supper-club cocktails is successful in spades, from the classic Milwaukee-born pink drink to lesser-knowns made with modern ingredients. Bonus: duckpin bowling and carpetball.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Tom Collins, made the way it should be— powdered sugar and all
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Lanes can be reserved in advance on the bar’s website, but it’s more of a formality. If there’s a wait, take it as a sign to order another round.
