​​About Zade’s Lounge

Zade’s Lounge boasts a carefully crafted environment that illuminates with high energy and personality. Their carefully crafted cocktails, gourmet pub-inspired dishes, and lively atmosphere bring together the best of back in the day nostalgia with modern-day entertainment.  Go watch a football game on their big screen, or challenge someone to a game of foosball. No matter your age, Zade’s is an escape from your day-to-day life. There are many sides to Zade’s, but most importantly they want you to just unwind and have fun. Because lounge, sports bar, restaurant, arcade, blue’s brunch, karaoke, live music didn’t fit on the sign.

About Scott Harris Hospitality

A whole lot can be said about the man, but first and foremost, he trusts his gut. And if you’re feeling hungry, you should too. Scott has helped found numerous successful restaurants throughout the prestigious Chicago culinary scene which have won him such awards as Chicago Restauranteur of the Year, Top 25 Restaurants in Chicago, and even a James Beard nomination. His establishments have found the hitherto mythical crossroads where classy meets classic, expertly tight roping the paper-thin line between quality and affordability. Scott snowballed a single experiment in casual, authentic Italian fare into a wildly successful operation that now boasts locations across the country.
