55 of 228:
Whirlaway Lounge

WHY HERE: Whirlaway has served the neighborhood, as evidenced by the wear on its wooden-top bar, since before hipsters descended on Logan Square. Hipster or not, this spot is and will always be a go-to, with its divey charm and love for the Blackhawks.

WHY NOW: You can still get a solid variety of bottled domestics and imports, but you can always count on getting the bar’s signature Margarita, a quality standby. It’s still owned and run by the Jaimes family, who lovingly take care of their regulars. And in a quickly changing area, it’s one place you can count on to buck trends and keep things real.
