New Music Venue Viper Alley Opens on the North Shore

Viper Alley in Lincolnshire is the hot new music venue on the North Shore.

It’s part restaurant, part concert venue, part nightclub, part bowling alley.

The space is cool—the decorating is “industrial chic” with cement walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, so you feel like you’re in a downtown loft. The space is versatile and can be rearranged to fit a large party (500 max) or event. This is the perfect venue for hosting a corporate outing, school fundraiser, 50th birthday party, bar/bat mitzvah, or a special girls’ night out.

They spared no cost on the sound system and lighting—there are 14 big-screen TVs in the concert room and bowling lounge, so no need to crane your neck to see the stage. And acoustics are great. There are a few VIP booths on the side, where food can be served.

Reverb Kitchen is the restaurant, seating 60 to100, and serving small bites and gourmet pizza, among other items. Like any new venue, give it time to draw the big artists—they’ll come.

Don’t miss this show at Viper Alley: John Oates (of Hall & Oates) on Thursday, May 19. Viper Alley is located at 275 Parkway Dr., Lincolnshire, 847-499-5000.
