05-21-2010 Hmmm, Simoneís. Iíve been here exactly 3 times, and feel like I gave them plenty of time to improve since they opened. Some things they get right, and others they donít. Three tap towers, all the same taps, never rotating. Why? Squandered potential. Like loud music? It "goes to 11" all night. This bar is in Pilsen, a neighborhood with strong cultural community, and this place sticks out like a sore thumb in some ways. The interior with deconstructed pinball machines is clever, if not overly designed, but itís unique to say the least. It feels like Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome in here. Prices on beer & food are generally high for the area. It doesnít seem to attract the locals, due to the trendy sterile vibe and relatively high prices. Service is tragically hip and hit or miss. Skylark is a much better beer bar in the area, with much more affordable beer & food. Mariaís in Bridgeport is another nearby option that runs circles around Simoneís. But with all that said, they have a selection of good quality. Dark Horse, FFF, Founders, Bells, etc. Nicely varied bottle list. Iíve only had the fries here, so I canít comment much on the food, other than itís slightly upscale with a good variety. Iíd only go here if I was already in the area, and wouldnít make a detour for it. If this all sounds like backhanded praise, it is.

Pretty cool layout with the retro game theme. Ok selection. Dropped about $50 on food and two drinks each for me and my lady. Food was good usual pub stuff but classed up a tad.

Located in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, a mixture of a Mexican community/hipster community. This is a rather large bar with an outdoor summer patio. It does have an old-school look with pinball machines plus other artifacts. But if you look closely you will find an entire sci-fi motif happening throughout the bar. They have a good selection of beers on tap, approximately a dozen, and a lot of beers in cans and bottles. A step above barfood, itís pretty good. Overall I recommend.

Iíve been here a couple of times now and have ate here as well. The place is located in Pilsen an up and comming area, a bit scary still but the place is safe. Nice decor of old pinball machines, old scool TVís and bowling alley wood. The ambiences is hipster with a grungy look. Te selection is just alright, nothing rare but a solid selection for the novice. The food is pretty good a solid burger. Overall a nice place in a well deserved neighborhood.
