A new Logan Square watering hole offers a unique glimpse at Chicago's partying past.

Longman & Eagle opened its doors Wednesday, employing an antiquated -- but charming! -- late-night tavern and inn motif: you can grab a beer in the bar, then hit the adjoining rooms to sleep it off.

The folks behind booze and music venue The Empty Bottle are behind this contemporary look at an age-old concept.

Instead of swinging saloon doors, big hats and duels to the death, picture an open kitchen, bare tables, banquettes and a vinyl jukebox that offers everything from J Dilla to Motorhead.

Nothing like a little heavy metal when you're enjoying a shot with breakfast.

The restaurant and bar are located on the first floor, and the six sleeping quarters, which will open in the spring, are upstairs.

The regional American menu emphasizes locally organic and sustainable ingredients, but foods from many of Chicago's immigrant cultures are represented as well.

Longman & Eagle, 2657 N. Kedzie Ave., open 3 p.m. until 2 a.m. Sunday through Friday, and 3 p.m. until 3 a.m. Saturday. Breakfast, brunch and lunch will be added later this year. (773) 276-7110
