Wish You Were Here: Logan Square, Chicago
Who needs a drink after this week? Well, we wish you were here with us, sitting at the bar of Longman & Eagle in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. We decamped to the Second City this week because once we called it home and it forever remains a favorite of all our international destinations.
To speak more of Logan Square, however, we must first say that there once was a book called The Hipster Handbook and in it was a characterthe perfect hipster girland she resided in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. Well, that area has jumped the shark in its hipsterdom over the last few years, and now it's increasingly the dominion of what Chicagoans slangily call the "Trixies" and "Chads," or as everyone would call them, the Yuppies.
These days it's Logan Square's time to shine. The rents are still affordable, the restaurants are grabbing Michelin stars (just as Longman & Eagle did), and the music venues remain true to their indie cred...for now. Heck, Longman & Eagle has whiskey and bourbon lists longer than their food menu options, so you know it'll be a while before the area gives in to the J. Crew set. If you know what we mean.
