Summit Design + Build LLC recently completed renovations at two of the city’s best-known music venues, the Aragon Ballroom in the North Side’s Uptown neighborhood, and the House of Blues in River North downtown. Each project included work to remodel and upgrade the VIP areas.
While most of the historic Aragon building was left untouched, Summit’s scope of 9,500 square feet including renovating the first-floor staff offices and expanding restrooms. On the second floor, attention was turned to the VIP area.
The second of the projects, House of Blues, was negotiated following a positive performance at Aragon Ballroom. Summit remodeled the third-floor Foundation Dining Room (pictured), while the main dining room was expanded to incorporate a semi-private dining room which had been located behind the bar.
RLE Partners and Valerio Dewalt Train & Associates served as the owner’s representative and project architect, respectively. Both venues are owned by Live Nation.
