Tucked away is this speakeasy-esque Logan Square hot spot that is notorious for their excellence in mixology. If you’re looking for a non pretentious place to have a great cocktail in Chicago, the Whistler has got you covered.
This bar is very intimate based on the sheer size of it. On a busy night there will be people packed in here either mingling or getting their groove on to the DJs picks and live music on certain nights. The Whistler also has its own in-house record label so their stage can be used for seating or shows depending on the night.
What I love most though is definitely their cocktails. You can ask any of their bartenders for something made with a specific spirit or say “I feel like I want something pink” and they’ll concoct something gorgeous and unique to your desires. Hence my glamorous spotted photo displaying my little mermaid drink request!
If you are planning to go on the weekend I recommend arriving earlier in the evening, because the line can be out the door sometimes! There’s a patio in the back if weather permits for an outdoor hang.
