Local Arlington Heights bistro Hey Nonny is preparing for the summer season with outdoor seating and free concerts. The bistro and live music venue opened in the heart of downtown Arlington Heights in late 2018 and is emerging as a neighborhood favorite.

Hey Nonny plans to add 22 outdoor seats outside the venue across from Harmony Park, which will be available in the evenings and for weekend brunches. The dinner and brunch menus feature seasonal dishes using locally sourced ingredients. On the weekends, the venue hosts a bluegrass brunch every Saturday and a jazz brunch every Sunday with food served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and live music from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.


On select Friday nights, the Village of Arlington Heights hosts a Sounds of Summer concert in Harmony Park. After the concerts, Hey Nonny will keep the party rolling and open their doors for a free evening concert.

"We're very excited to be adding outdoor seating for the warm summer months," said co-founder Chris Dungan. "Not only can our diners enjoy the dining al fresco, but they can listen to live music on Fridays during the Sounds of Summer concert series."

"We couldn't have asked for a better location, especially in the summer," said co-owner Chip Brooks. "Because so many concerts, festivals and events take place right outside our door, Hey Nonny is a great place to drop in for a meal or creative cocktails. We can also open our windows, so our guests can listen to the summer concerts as they enjoy their meal."

Hey Nonny is a bistro and music venue located in the heart of downtown Arlington Heights. The bistro serves an array of farm-to-table entrees and small plates conjured up by Chef Jay Ruff. The menu changes on a regular basis to feature seasonal items sourced from local Midwest farm suppliers. The music venue hosts live music six days a week, featuring the best Chicago and touring acts playing jazz, blues, country, folk, and rock.
