LOGAN SQUARE — Chandeliers in the Two Way Lounge?

Fans of the notorious dive bar, 2412 N. Milwaukee Ave., might be surprised to see what's taken its place: Deadbolt, a bar with "modern and comfortable vibe" complete with chandeliers, trendy artwork and tin ceilings.

The ownership team — the group behind Furious Spoon and mixologist Dustin Drankiewicz of the West Loop's Moneygun — is finally ready to debut the bar, which opens Friday at 5 p.m. with live music from Rich Jones and Timmy Voltcheck.

The Two Way Lounge was one of the neighborhood's longest-running dive bars before the Furious Spoon team bought it in August. During its 51-year run, the bar was known for its cheap beer and unpretentious vibes.

The same ownership team is planning to open a craft cocktail bar in the former nail salon next to Deadbolt.
