For nearly eight years Simone’s has been located in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago offering a great bar and grill experience. It’s a fantastic environment for mixing with friends, colleagues and neighbors. We have something going on most nights whether it’s DJs, trivia, karaoke and live performances with DJs.
The interior of Simone’s is undeniably unique with two distinct bar areas and seasonal outside space. Using various reclaimed architectural artifacts, the decor includes a bar-top built from a bowling alley lane, graffiti-scarred high school chemistry table tops and booths built from old pinball machines. The use of reclaimed materials fits in with Simone’s commitment to responsible and green-friendly practices which also includes a rooftop herb garden and banks of solar panels.
Simone’s offers a fantastic platform for performance and presentation, including two main rooms, each with its own premium sound and PA systems. Hovering over the end of the front room, beyond the bowling lane bar, is the main DJ booth, complete with a cage to hold all the groupies. Around the corner of the front room lies a columned seating area with booths woven of old seat belts. Following the rear walls of the front room is a band of graffiti created by local street artists. Through the doors at the back of the front room is Simone’s Lab, another bar and performance area which focuses on art exhibition, salon-style discussions and performance and cultural events. Sound fun? We think it is! Come by and join us for food and libations in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago.
