    Chicago’s tropical cocktail paradise is being praised by Imbibe Magazine as the 'Cocktail Bar of the Year,' standing out as the best in the country in 2015.

    Lost Lake, the tiki bar that has garnered plenty of attention in the city’s Logan Square neighborhood, was given the title in the annual Imbibe 75 issue.

    The bar at 3154 W. Diversey Ave.was recognized for showcasing “longtime bartender Paul McGee’s lasting impact on the drinks world.”

    According to a photo of the magazine article posted to social media Tuesday, the bar most notably “combines the best in hospitality and drinks with fun and relaxing escapist vibes.”

    McGee, who has been named Chicago’s Best Bartender for that past five years and was among Chicago Magazine’s 100 most powerful Chicagoans, says in the piece the bar’s main goal is to “distill the original spirit of Don’s Beachcomber Café down to its very essence and stay true to that – tropical, escapist, fun, delicious, friendly and different from other bars in the neighborhood.”
