LOGAN SQUARE — A new wine bar is coming to Logan Square’s Armitage Avenue — and it appears the group behind Scofflaw, Slippery Slope and The Moonlighter is behind it.
For weeks the only sign a new business was coming to 3204 W. Armitage Ave. was a colorful new sign that read Outside Voices, but on Monday the brown paper was taken down, revealing a small bar with wood furniture, plants and a large neon “wine” sign.
Outside Voices will focus on wine and snacks, according to its new Instagram account. The website listed in the account bio doesn’t load.
It appears the Scofflaw group is behind the new establishment. A sign on the window reads, “Coming Soon! Please visit The Moonlighter around the corner on Kedzie.” And the only Instagram accounts the Outside Voices account follows are the ones belonging to Scofflaw, The Moonlighter, Slippery Slope and Heavy Feather.
The Scofflaw group hasn’t responded to multiple requests for comment.
When a Block Club reporter stopped by the new bar on Monday, several people were gathered there for a meeting but a man who opened the door wouldn’t provide any further information. A worker at Scofflaw also declined to comment.
Stay tuned for more information.
