Russ and Desiree Grant (Street Side, Northside) again teamed up with Michael Noone (their partner at Simone's) to open Boiler Room. Like its Pilsen sibling, the bar has an industrial, eco-friendly aesthetic courtesy of reclaimed materials cobbled together by design firm Alter Ego. Bartenders serve cheap, hipster-approved drafts, craft brews and a tasty selection of cocktails. An open kitchen equipped with a Roto-Flex pizza oven cranks out huge thin-crust pies with seasonal toppings, sold by the whole pie or slice. The neighborhood is the focus here, so expect affordable price points (that means few drinks over $8) and a rock n' roll vibe (we love the $7.50 pizza-PBR-Jameson shot combo served daily). Hit the ATM before you arrive -- it's cash-only.
