  • Zodiac Cafe
    Zodiac Cafe and Lounge balances a constellation of themed martinis with a Mediterranean-inspired menu of sandwiches, salads, and small plates. Diners design flights of cheese and olives, and chefs stuff grass-fed burger patties with a rotating selection of ingredients. Pints from the craft-beer menu complement edibles, as do 12 martinis that re-imagine each astrological sign as a concoction of colorful spirits. Muted earth tones and wood accents anchor both dining room and lounge to terra firma, and starburst light fixtures and an astrological chart grant insight into Zeus's interior-decorating scheme. After the sun sets on the patio, wander inside to check out the schedule of karaoke, open-mic performances, and sets from local house DJs.

  • Bobby McGee's
    Flashing lights pulsate to thumping beats as smoke rises from a DJ booth framed by projection screens and swaying bodies. Though it may seem like a scene out of a movie, this energetic setting actually takes place seven nights a week at Bobby McGee's. And to keep their lively parties grooving until the wee hours, the South Side staple curates festive party themes, such as a Black Out Fridays and the occasional Hawaiian luau, which boasts an inflatable surfing game and real-life boars wandering through the crowd. Weekend concerts enliven the already convivial mood, as do bag tournaments, live band karaoke, and charity events to support causes such as cancer research. When not catering to the party crowd, Bobby McGee's transforms the spacious dance area into bar room filled with stools and tables. Diners can dig into half-pound burgers and specialty pizzas topped with buffalo shrimp, and those craving a south-of-the-border meal can turn to the menu's Tex-Mex dishes of buffalo chicken quesadillas and beef nachos. These bar eats can be paired with weekly drink specials, from Old Style beer to shots, or the bar's signature 32-ounce long island drink served in a mason jar.

  • Intimo
    Intimo's menu whisks diners to the Italian countryside with a variety of authentic house-made entrees. More than 300 bottles of distinct wines hibernate in the 58-degree walk-in wine cellar. Director Frank Pecora fosters a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere with dim lighting and sleek, dark wooden accents. Candles flicker atop tables draped in white linens, casting shadow-puppet adaptations of Godzilla vs. Fork and Knife on the exposed-brick walls.

  • Simone's Bar
    It’s a difficult task to pull off—taking a hodgepodge of recycled odds and ends and creating something entirely new. Simone’s Bar, however, has proven up to the challenge. An architectural potpourri of artifacts salvaged from around the city, the Pilsen bar is best known for the retired pinball machines that line its walls. These ancient tables lend a retro vibe to the bar area, where microbrews and cocktails take the place of pins on a recycled bowling lane. Other idiosyncratic elements include chemistry tables from nearby Westinghouse High School, conveyer belts from Chicago’s Fanny May Candies factory, and a chandelier molded from bicycle chains and rocking chairs. Combined with the solar panels on the rooftop, these repurposed knickknacks have earned Simone’s status as a three-star certified green restaurant. Simone’s décor may come from all corners of the city, but its food is influenced more by the bar’s immediate surroundings. Empanadas and a grilled cheese sandwich with Chihuahua cheese nod to Pilsen’s proud Mexican heritage, as do burgers topped with jalapenos and guacamole. The drink menu also has a local slant, highlighting Chicago brews and craft cocktails that would feel right at home in one of the galleries on nearby Halsted Street.
