This environmentally friendly bar—complete with rooftop herb garden and solar panels—is the place to be if you're looking for live music, art or just a unique place to drink. In addition to the extensive drink menu and bar bites available in the main room, they have two additional spaces for DJs, art exhibits and salon-style discussions. The entire venue is made from repurposed materials, including the bar top built from a bowling alley lane and a DJ station built from old pinball machines.

Owned by the same folks who dole out slices at Boiler Room and burgers at Parts and Labor, Simone's echoes the kitschy, industrial design of the former spots but serves a menu that isn't as focused around a single type of cuisine. You'll find pizza AND burgers on the menu here, as well as a long list of appetizers (the fried pickles are difficult to resist) and some great craft beers on tap.
