WOW! How cool is this?!

LKH MGMT, the group behind Lakeview’s Hydrate, Elixir, Replay and Halsted’s Bar & Grill, announces the addition of two new Andersonville locations slated to open this summer.

By opening Replay Andersonville and Elixir Lounge Andersonville LKH brings two of its most popular concepts to the burgeoning neighborhood. Replay Andersonville will be located at 5368 N Clark (at Balmoral)  and Elixir Lounge Andersonville will be located at 1507 W Balmoral, right around the block!

“We have had Andersonville in our sights for more than two years and finally secured the perfect locations for both concepts,” said LKH Managing Partner Sean Kotwa. LKH President Mark Liberson agreed, stating, “The Replay and Elixir locations are in a building that just underwent an amazing renovation and we are thrilled to be the first tenants.”

Replay Andersonville opens first and mirrors the Lake View location with popular pinball games, iconic vintage video games and more than 24 craft beers on tap. Unlike the Lake View location, Replay Andersonville will serve food, including weekend brunch, as well as lunch and dinner all week.

Elixir Lounge Andersonville will feature the extensive list of creative and classic premium cocktails that Elixir Lake View is lauded for. In addition, Elixir Andersonville will serve small plate dining options to complement the craft cocktail program.

Both concepts feature outdoor space, which was a deciding factor in securing the new sites. Kotwa commented, “Chicago’s summers make this city and we are eager to bring something new to this stretch of Balmoral.”

LKH looks forward to being a part of the Andersonville community and participating in Midsommarfest. “Our experience with Northalsted’s Market Days and Pridefest energizes us to be part of a new community and festival,” said Kotwa.

Liberson notes that many of Replay and Elixir’s Lake View patrons have moved into the Andersonville area and was one of the factors for adding the locations. “It’s one of the best neighborhoods in the nation and we understand the demand directly from our customer base. We are elated to bring these concepts to a new area.”
Both are slated to be open in the Summer of 2015.
