    55555 by Luke Stein

  • KindallA hipster vibe was given off by the bar. The space is lacking enough seating and tables for guests, but their unique cocktail menu helps while you wait at the bar. Real fire place adds value to venue.

  • EaterThe ultimate neighborhood bar resides in Logan Square. It's perfect for groups, and most everyone now knows about their unique cocktail offerings.

    55555 by James L.

  • Staff PicksBrrr, winter is finally here and with it our longing to snuggle by the fireplace. Don't have one at home? Scofflaw is a great bar for cozying up next to a fireplace and enjoying a tasty cocktail.

    55555 by Staff Picks

    55555 by Sharon T.

  • TV Food MapsCheck out Scofflaw as it was featured on Man Finds Food for Gin-infused cocktails, a secret sandwich and a fresh approach to modern bar fare, Scofflaw rises above the typical tavern.

    55555 by TV Food Maps

  • Hillman PhilistiaThese people have no concept of acoustic design. Even the best table/bar stool at this place is very close to others. This is a hot/popular spot. Forget about it

    55555 by Hillman Philistia

    55555 by Taylor K.

    55555 by Amy G.

    55555 by Matt Latourelle

  • Colin YoungGoddamnit if this isn't one of the best bars in America. Tight operation, perfect cocktails and food; two fireplaces, outdoor space. Perfect in all weather. They just nail every aspect.

    55555 by Colin Young

    55555 by Alex Tomasik

  • Shinji K.Great 30s style burger

    55555 by Shinji K.

  • Amy L.Really great craft cocktail joint. Private Vices and Feat of Strength are strong stand outs.

    55555 by Amy L.

  • T CallahanAsk for a Death's Door old fashioned.

    55555 by T Callahan

  • Caitlin W.One of the best bars I've been to. One side has a cozy living room feel where you can TALK to people. Great house made cocktails and my boyfriend like their old fashioned. Free cookies at 12!

    55555 by Caitlin W.

  • Hillman PhilistiaLoud music, can't have a conversation. Seats are too close to each other. Explains the loud music.

    55555 by CNN

  • Lala L.Trust the bartender, and try the veggie po boy...with a side of fries.

    55555 by Lala L.

  • ChicagoistThe crazy Baroque/Victorian/goth/whatever decor always suffices to keep a conversation going; the fact that it's a little bit off the beaten path lets you weed out those who never leave River North.

    55555 by Chicagoist

  • ChicagoistDuring the hot, blazing days of summer, personal cocktail choices tend to skew more towards the bright and refreshing than brown and moody. There was none more refreshing this year than "The Sleeper".

    55555 by Chicagoist

  • ChicagoistI recommend the Sly Devil, with Scofflaw Old Tom Gin, Maurin Quina, chai syrup and lime.

    55555 by Chicagoist
