It's time to hang ten on Milwaukee Avenue. Surf, the new beachy spot from the guys behind the Emporium Arcade Bars, soft opened on Thursday in Logan Square and will hold a grand opening on July 14. And the beach-themed vibe runs deep, as evidenced in the photo gallery below.
Prepare yourself to feel like you're outside at a beach town even when you're inside a Chicago bar in the dead of winter. Colorful beach shack exteriors, swinging benches suspended by ropes, fishing lures, tropical plants and of course surf boards bring the theme to life. Pizza, sandwiches, salads, house-made tropical cocktails on tap and lighter and refreshing beers extend the theme to the consumables. Read the drink menus below.
Is the Emporium guys' first non-gaming bar another big kahuna? Head over to Surf to find out.
Surf, 2367 N. Milwaukee Ave., open 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. Sunday through Friday, 5 p.m. until 3 a.m. Saturday, lunch coming soon.
