Welcome to Sonotheque

Chicago – A trio of Chicago’s nightlife style-makers, restaurateurs Terry Alexander and Donnie Madia and DJ Joe Bryl, teamed up to open Chicago’s most innovative lounge of sound, Sonotheque, at 1444 W. Chicago Avenue. A unique music venue, Sonotheque is Chicago’s foremost platform for local and international DJ’s and a superlative showcase for artistic musical and visual collaboration.

Designed first as an acoustically precise room for a world-class sound system and second as an intimate lounge, Sonotheque delivers a pure quality of sound unparalleled in Chicago nightclubs. Stressing tonality rather than

thumping base, the venue is the first in America to use England’s outstanding Funktion One speakers. Combined with precision sound insulation, the club features the sound-controlling technology of a recording studio in a club environment. As a result, the lounge offers exceptional musical integrity balanced by design elements that serve to reflect, refract and absorb sound.

Sonotheque’s heavy emphasis on DJ talents demands a constant source of freshness and fluidity to keep the vibe current. Under the musical direction of Managing Partner Joe Bryl, Sonotheque has been developed as a setting where Chicago and international groove merchants can stretch their creativity and showcase their musical breadth. The library of sound at Sonotheque will allow for a year’s worth of current, experimental, vintage and ethnic tunes before repeating any one track.
One of Chicago’s most exacting and expansive DJs, Bryl has been a fixture on Chicago’s underground scene for nearly two decades. An originator of Hot House and formerly General Manager of the Green Mill, Bryl is also known for his own spinning at hot spots such as the China Club, Vinyl, and Funky Buddha Lounge.

Complementing the music, Terry Alexander (Mia Francesca, Mod, and Danny’s Tavern) and Donnie Madia (Blackbird) have brought their restaurant backgrounds and fearless energy to developing Sonotheque’s ambiance. Known for pushing the boundaries of a fine dining experience, both have created spaces marked by award-winning, yet uncompromising and assertive design. Alexander’s own Okno was a bold experimentation in blending DJ-driven music and dining; while at Blackbird, partner Donnie Madia has developed a world-class restaurant that breaks all the rules of fine dining environments.
