A Logan Square standard, The Whistler thrives on its versatility. Sometimes upbeat with music and filled to the brim with folks cheerfully dancing, at other times good for a quieter drink with a friend, this bar seems to always have the right ambience to satisfy its diverse customer base. From the excellent craft cocktails, to the friendly and knowledgeable staff, to the live music and quirky events like "Movieoke" (seriously, check this one out for a Wednesday night giggle), over the past five years this place has become a central watering hole in Logan Square.

The whistler is a grand ole time. Good vinyl jams and good people make this a great spot to hang out with friends. If you go on the right night you can enjoy 90's jams being played all night while enjoyihg some of the best mixed drinks in chicago.

These mixologists are awesome! There are new drinks constantly that you can try out all the time! Come in for the drinks, stay for the local bands and dj's. Become a regular here and they will love you! They will even make drinks that are no longer on the menu for you if you are a regular!

I spent one of the most memorable nights of my life here listening to a super talented but completely unknown DJ spin old school hip-hop while I sipped innovative cocktails from some of the best mixologists in town. The is the place where Paul McGee made his name and they still carry on his legacy with unique flavor combinations and obscure liquors. Warning: you will wait in line to get in after 10pm, you will wait to get a cocktail and you will wait for the bathroom. But the silver lining is that you're in one of the best bars in the neighborhood.

Hands down the best Old Fashioned in the city. Great, chill atmosphere. Bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. Try to get a seat outside.

This is by far my favorite bar in Chicago. The drinks are amazing and with a constantly changing menu it keeps you coming back. If there is a line outside, don't worry the wait is worth it.

Strong, well-crafted drinks and a great Logan Square-vibe. The outdoor patio with its large tables is a perfect spot to unwind on hot Chicago nights. It certainly is meeting expectations as one of GQ's 25 Best Cocktail destinations.
