Tiki fans, rejoice—your favorite bar is getting national attention. Lost Lake, the Paul McGee helmed tiki bar in Logan Square, got the nod from Imbibe Magazine as Cocktail Bar of the year.

Later, a summary post went up on Imbibe's site. The full article about Lost Lake is only available in print right now, but you can squint to read it in Allison's Instagram. Imbibe calls Lost Lake "one of the most hospitable, quality-driven bars in the country." We're sure all its fans would agree.
