A new cocktail bar has opened for business in the neighborhood. Called The Pink Squirrel, the fresh addition is located at 2414 N. Milwaukee Ave. (between Richmond St. & Fullerton Ave.) in Logan Square.
This newcomer bills itself as a Midwest cocktail lounge that pairs "supper clubclassics with throwback entertainment."
The lounge features 1950's-style decor, along with a duckpin bowling and "grandpa's favorite cocktails, like the Grasshopper (Crème de menthe, creme de cacao) or the famed Pink Squirrel (vanilla ice cream, crème de cacao, and ruby red Crème de Noyaux)— said to be invented in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the 1950's.
The Pink Squirrel has built a following on Yelp, with users giving it a 4.5-star rating out of 11 reviews thus far.
Goof D., who was the first Yelper to review the new spot on December 9th, said: "This is not just another new bar. Pink squirrel has the setup with its 50s 60s vibes and atmosphere that other bars try hard to pull off. Delicious cocktails, great bartenders, and friendly staff."
