New Line Bar takes over old Powerhouse space


There's a new bar in town, going into the massive space formerly known as Powerhouse Restaurant.

Daily Bar & Grill owner Steve Soble (who's also behind a couple of popular bowling alleys, including Lakeview's Southport Lanes) is transforming the spot into New Line Bar, "the name commonly used for a rail line built around 1900 between Chicago and Milwaukee designed to bypass the congested cities along Lake Michigan where the older line traveled," according to Crain's Chicago Business.

There are also plans for a restaurant at the location, but no word on the name or owner yet . . .

I miss Powerhouse. Food and staff were great. Prices were very high though and there wasn't anything else around. Bad timing.
