Vintage Chicago tavern
If you’re lucky, you can snag a couch out back by the fireplace at Simon’s, where you can take in the cool vintage bar (built in the ‘30s to resemble a bar on the SS Normandie), sip some seasonal grog and check out the friendly neighborhood crowd.
Proudly hailing its Swedish heritage, Simon’s is full of paraphernalia and advertising. As a longstanding Chicago establishment, Simon’s has a dear place in the hearts of many locals. Drop in for a drink or two and bask in the Swedish influence of this particular neighborhood.
