Version 2's always go bigger than Version 1's -- while The Terminator made you fear lumbering Austrians, T2 made you think every thermometer in town was out to kill you for drinking out of the carton. Behold Northside Bar and Grill 2.0: Logan Bar and Grill
Built from the same floorplan as Northside (including the vaulted timber truss and glass atrium), Logan features eight-foot higher ceilings, twin fireplaces, a radiant-heated floor, a purple-felt billiard table, a custom built pre-prohibition era style back bar, and a 2nd pour spot called the "wee bar", which with its mahogany colonnaded hulking footprint is just wee enough to crush you. The beer ante's raised with a super-cooled basement keg refrigerator piping Goose Island, Bass, Sierra Nevada, etc, up to 16 glistening silver taps, including one nitrogen-infused restrictor plate tap for a properly creamy Guinness head; monthly beer specials'll run $3-$4, making you wonder how they'll ever pay for that super-cooled fridge. Sidle in to cherry-wood hi-boy seats, and you'll also gaze upon a premium scotch collection highlighted by a Logan exclusive: Glenturret, from Scotland's oldest single-malt distillery (1775, a full decade before water was invented).
A few welcome constants: the same solid bar-food (wings, nachos, calamari, 1/2lb, hand-packed Northside burgers), and the protein-packed Bloody Mary: with its skewer of Swiss, salami, pickles & olives, it assaults both hunger and thirst with a grim determination that'd make any Terminator proud, even that hot chick one.
