Cocktail bar Billy Sunday (3143 West Logan Boulevard) opens tonight. Details is already calling the Logan Square establishment one of the best new bars in America.
Matthias Merges, former chef at Charlie Trotter’s, presides over a cozy parlor in the up-and-coming Logan Square hood.
The Vibe: Antique china and reclaimed chandeliers recall late-19th-century watering holes.
The Drinks: Inventive with exotic ingredients, like a daiquiri made with rhum agricole, Jamaican overproof white rum, lime, passion-fruit syrup, and pineapple bitters.
Does it live up to the hype? From the mind of Matthias Merges (Yusho), Billy Sunday is certainly in good hands. See for yourself and let us know in the comments section below.
