Bonhomme Hospitality Group is a full service hospitality design, development and management company, with an in-house integrated marketing team specializing in branding, content creation and communications. One of the few shops in Chicago that Concepts, Designs, Builds and Operates every square inch of their venues, the Bonhomme Group continues to expand its portfolio that today includes some of Chicago's most distinctive hospitality venues, lauded in local and national press for their designs and award-winning food and beverage programs.
Today, this diverse group of concepts includes Beatnik (Cocktail Bar & Restaurant), Black Bull (Spanish Restaurant), Bordel (Cocktail Bar & Cabaret), Celeste (Cocktail Bar & Restaurant), DISCO (retro 1970’s Dance Club), Café Bonhomme (Restaurant, Bar, Café), and Beatnik On The River (Cocktail Bar & Restaurant). Bonhomme Hospitality is led by four fun-loving friends, Managing Partner & Founder Daniel Alonso and Partners Nader Hindo, Fadi Hindo and Rafid Hindo.
The name for Bonhomme Hospitality Group found its origin in the two main qualities that the group’s venues strive for in their service: to be humble and good-natured. “In French, bonhomme means good-natured man (from bon good and homme man), so the translation itself is a reminder of the good-natured quality we constantly strive for,” says Founder and Managing Partner Daniel Alonso. “Bonhomme was also the name of the street I grew up on, and by sharing the name it helps me to remain humble and never forget my origins.”
