February represents the first sign of a light at the end of winter’s frigid tunnel in Chicago. But don’t get too excited, the shortest month can also be the longest in terms of waiting for spring. But waiting isn’t as bad while holding a tasty cocktail. And with that, we present the latest edition of Eater Chicago’s Cocktail Heatmap.
The list includes buzz-worthy new bars and restaurants with eclectic drink menus and atmospheres. Find six new additions this month, including a Logan Square diner with a new liquor license, a sports bar with a funky menu, and a Wicker Park cocktail bar. Cheers!
