Just above Logan Square dance bar staple, Slippery Slope, is its chiller, retro-themed lounge, The Heavy Feather. And though they do have a disco ball, this place is more suitable for a relaxed hang. Unlike its sibling's more open layout, The Heavy Feather has plenty of standing tables, leather booths, and comfy 70’s-esque leather rolly chairs. While they have beer, the focus is cocktails. And they’re all fantastic—from well-balanced espresso martinis and mezcal Old Fashioneds to a fantastic grasshopper that’s everything you want in a boozy milkshake. While they don't serve food, a local tamale guy does occasionally stop by (though it’s not the Tamale Guy).
