There’s something for everyone at The Moonlighter, the Scofflaw Group’s new ultra-casual restaurant across the street from Scofflaw that opens tonight. The focus is on beer and burgers, with an array of sours and other approachable beer styles. Cocktails come from partner Danny Shapiro, with spirits all over the board and large-format cocktails made for sharing on a sunny day on a dog-friendly patio that has room for 200. There’s a short wine list with rotating options of sparkling options, whites, reds, and rosés — customers can order shots of the latter.

The space at 3204 W. Armitage Avenue is warm and cozy with wooden accents and fireplaces (both indoors and outdoors), and TVs line the bar. Large booths are perfect for larger groups, while smaller parties can belly up to the bar for a casual night. The bar’s focus is to be a place that people would agree to go to without a second thought, even going multiple times a week, with wallet-friendly prices on high-quality food and drinks
