What’s halfway between The Whistler’s handcrafted cocktails and hipster ’tude, and Two Way Lounge’s dirt-cheap beer and barroom decorum? Cole’s (2338 N. Milwaukee Ave.; 773-276-5802), a new low-key Logan Square dive just down the block from both, where mostly neighborhood types congregate over mostly $5 drafts. Our photographer dropped by on Friday night, when a lineup of local bands played for no cover in the bar’s back room.
