Though Logan Square denizens of hip (and cheap) see the opening of this sports bar as one of the many death knells of their burgeoning 'hood, before a kind of Bucktown yuppie implosion occurs, they still frequent the joint for $5 pints of Bell's (or one of the other 10 beers on tap, and over 50 bottles).
Management actually has direct Bucktown ties, as Logan Bar & Grill is owned by the proprietors of Northside Bar and Grill. The owners have employed a similar layout, featuring a fleet of flat-screens and a sizable beer garden. Likewise with the pub-grub menu of $8 burgers and sandwiches, with a few diner-type outliers like a New York Strip steak and asiago cheese-tossed linguini that hit prices in the teens.
Logan Square resident would be wise to take the good - friendly, attentive service, free trivia every Sunday night, a convenient Blue Line location - with the not so good - the ubiquitous Golden Tee machine, a DJ who has too friendly a relationship with the upper registers of his volume knobs - as this place probably isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
