A new two-story restaurant project is ready to rise near the corner of Southport and Belmont in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood has been granted permission to rise. Replacing the old Harmony Grill and a narrow parking lot next to Schubas Tavern, the project landed a permit for its foundation and basement back in April and can now commence above-ground work.
Designed by Gensler Chicago to compliment rather than gimmick the landmarked 1903 German renaissance revival Schubas building, the Tied House will utilize an X-shaped brick lattice that will appear to glow from within once the project is completed. Though the pattern mirrors themes found in the brickwork of its neighbor, the new structure is separate—though also “tied”—to the Schubas establishment.
The Tied House aims to supplement Schubas reputation as a late night music venue by providing an all-day dining destination for the neighborhood. According to Eater Chicago, the upcoming restaurant will offer “local, midwestern ingredients” and an extensive beer list.
