Bar Details

Forever one of Logan Square's best dives, the Whirlaway feels homey and pleasant, like you’re getting drunk in your parents’ basement. The decor is suspended in the early 90s—never mind the massive flat-screen TV sitting three feet behind the bar—and represents practically every Chicago-based sports team with some sort of pennant or sign. The liquor shelf is full, and beer comes strictly in bottles ready to be served by co-owner and bartender Maria Jaimes, who also answers to "The Sweetest Woman on the Planet." Welcome to the rare local spot that's going to remember your name with each Budweiser purchased and actually appear to give a damn about your day at work. —Kevin Warwick
