The Lost Lake is a cocktail bar located in the Logan Square Neighborhood in Chicago and it is designed to emulate the feeling of being on a tropical island. The oasis was inspired by previous eras, specifically the 30s in Hollywood and the island-like nautical aesthetic that brought the first ever tiki bar, 'Don's Beachcomber Cafe.'

To draw similar energy, it features a lauhala roof, banana leaf-printed wallpapers, and tropical libations. The cocktail program nods to the 80s, drawing in more retro themes, featuring a menu that dives into rich and exotic cocktail history. The team also translate the same ambiance with their tropical attire, well-versed in rum, and friendly demeanor. The Lost Lake is meant to take guests on what feels like a mini island vacation.
