A: The Owl opened in September of 2011, so almost 4 years.

Q: What do you want our community to know about The Owl?
A: The Owl is not your typical late night bar. We have an excellent craft beer selection and craft cocktail menu. We frequently host beer events and fundraisers and have a regular schedule of live music and djs(Chicago Reader 2015 Best 4am bar for live music). What's awesome about our shows and events is that they are always free!

recent Milwaukee Avenue Arts Fest. We are also a participant in the project to raise funds for the Logan Square Preservation Group to help support their efforts in rehabbing the Logan Square Monument. Not to mention we are a late night security presence on Milwaukee Avenue.

Q: What's your favorite song on the Jukebox at The Owl? 
A: That's a secret! If I tell you then I'll hear it played too often. I did sneak a favorite pop album in there, though. You'll have to come in and figure out which one!
