The 44th Ward Dinner Party
3542 N. Halsted St.
Soak up a night’s worth of drinking at this spot, formerly Lakeview Broadcasting Co., where the grilled cheese is a buck after midnight.




The Rocking Horse
2535 N. Milwaukee Ave.
The High Dive guys bring their laid-back attitude and a souped-up menu to Logan Square.




Tiny Lounge
4352 N. Leavitt St.
It’s not so tiny anymore, but the small plates at this relocated and revamped lounge have
our staff foodies cheering big.




Madpoison Ultralounge
806 W. Randolph St.
Forget BYO. It’s DIY at this new bar, where patrons pick their liquors and mixers using
touch-screen tables.




1540 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Lounge lizards who like kitsch with their cocktails appreciate the jungle theme; everyone else likes the free pizza that comes with their drink.
