Nightlife in Logan Square
Hopewell Brewing Company evokes a bustling cafeteria with wide open floor plan, but the only thing that you’ll get schooled in is fantastic craft beer. Maybe a table game or two for good measure. For cocktail lovers, Lost Lake Tiki Bar is a marvelous escape from the urban jungle to a more tropical state of mind (delicious high-proof drinks are a helpful travel companion). Locals also love the patio and upcycled glassware at Best Intentions, another venue serving refined drinks in a very laid-back atmosphere.
Live music venues along Milwaukee Avenue provide a steady stream of concerts and live shows. For old-school arcade games, check out the Emporium outpost in Logan Square.
History in Logan Square
Father & Son pizzeria opened in 1947 at the corner of Diversey and Whipple in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. After seven years, it was acquired by 24 year-old Marshall Bauer, who coaxed his father into joining him a few years later. Together they became the earliest progenitors of pizza delivery that pioneered slinging piping hot pizza pies to many of the surrounding Chicago apartments. By 1963, their thin-crust pizza was so popular that they expanded and settled into their current location 2475 N Milwaukee Avenue in the Logan Square. In the early 1990's, Marshall Bauer and his son Jay launched Nation Pizza Products and began producing hundreds of thousands of pizzas for grocers, schools, baseball parks, and other food service businesses. Meanwhile, Father & Son established a catering division called "Marcello's" and expanded the core restaurant business to new locations in Old Town and, more recently, Northbrook. Marshall's wife Abbe and his son Bill operate the pizzerias, where the menus have expanded and banquet options are now available. Today, Marcello's is the primary name of the Father & Son pizzerias.
