LOGAN SQUARE — The group behind Scofflaw, Slippery Slope and Sink|Swim is making progress on its new bar on the northwest corner of Armitage and Kedzie avenues.
On Thursday, the group applied for a city permit to build an outdoor beer garden with a canopy behind the bar at 3200 W. Armitage Ave., for $600,000, according to Chicago Cityscape, which is run by Steven Vance.
The project has been in the works for more than a year, but the group remains mum on the details. A spokeswoman for the group didn't immediately respond to a request for more information Friday afternoon.

According to a legal notice that surfaced in October 2015, the bar will be managed by Danny Shapiro, Andrew Gould and Kristofer Nagy. The building used to be home to a cellphone shop and a currency exchange.
The group is planning to keep the height of the building at one story, but also wants to build a 605-square-foot addition and add a 539-square-foot patio, which will likely be the site of the beer garden.
The remaining outdoor space will be leased to the business next door at 3204 W. Armitage for another bar patio. The building at 3204 W. Armitage is vacant.
