Gastropub/music venue Hey Nonny opens in Arlington Heights
Hey Nonny, the new 3,974-square-foot gastropub/music venue in downtown Arlington Heights, has officially opened its doors.
Opening night was Wednesday inside the venue's first floor space on the southwest corner of Vail Avenue and Campbell Street, featuring Chicago jazz singer Typhanie Monique's soul-infused tribute to the late Aretha Franklin.
The 150-person capacity music room, with an 18-foot wide stage and grand piano, will be open for ticketed concerts six nights a week. Rock, pop, reggae, country, blues, jazz, cabaret, classical, folk and more will be featured. A 24-foot-wide retractable acoustic wall can separate or combine that space with a 66-seat gastropub, offering farm-to-table cuisine and specialty cocktails.
Hey Nonny is the creation of Chip Brooks and Chris Dungan, who said they wanted to fill a void in the Northwest suburbs for those who don't want to travel too far to see live music.
Concerts this weekend include folk rock artist Reina del Cid Friday night and singer-songwriter Callaghan on Saturday.
