I used to drive past Relax lounge all the time when I lived in Logan Square, but it seemed like a shady dive bar, so I never went in. Now that I have been doing this blog, I was excited to finally get to Relax, but alas, it closed and now Moe's Tavern is in it's place. Doh!
Nothing unique about this place - it's obviously a ripoff of Moe's from "The Simpson's", down to the Simpson art on the awning and windows. They don't have Duff beer (actually a decent selection of craft beers), but you can order a Flaming Moe!
The interior is really stale...it seems like an office in a strip mall that was converted into a bar. This couldn't have been how Relax was...Moe's was just very BORING and too clean--it had no character. Christ, it had CARPET! There was a cute bartender, but that couldn't help Moe's, as there were only 3 other people in the bar.
