Deadbolt is a badass new bar concept in Logan Square on the hot Milwaukee drag. They've got good food, LIVE MUSIC, and good drinks. It used to be the old Two- Way Lounge which was a 50 year old dive bar that was a neighborhood staple. So they wanted to revamp it and make it cool and edgy but with a cozy neighborhood feel that still made the locals feel welcome.
They have some awesome cocktails that aren't too frou-frou-y but are adapted takes on classic favorites. Like a Bro-jito and a Rum Raisin Old Fashioned...yummmyyy. But if your getting hangry after a few drinks, you're in luck. They have a small but mighty menu of classic bar-food staples. Try the Chicago Char Dog, or their Griddled Butter Burger. I'm literally drooling as I write this.
Deadbolt- LOGAN SQUARE- 2412 N Milwaukee Ave
This has been one of my favorite spots for live music for over a decade. The fact that you can listen to legit live Reggae music in the heart of River North is probably the great thing to ever happen to Chicago. Yes I'm being dramatic, but I love this bar so damn much. Reggae is played on Thursday and Sunday nights and every other night of the week is filled with sounds of live Jazz, Funk, and Soul music.
It's a total dive bar, so don't expect any fancy drinks or food (although the do have some pretty fab frozen pizzas). However, you can feel as if you're chillin' in Kingston, Jamaica by posting up at the bar, downing a cold Red Stripe, and listening to a dope cover of Exodus. You won't be disappointed. It's Irie Mon!!
