The Silver Ballroom stands out as the hippest place to live out drunken fantasies as a pinball wizard. The interior is slick with bordello red walls, shiny black floors sprinkled with glitter and sparkly charcoal booths. The bar top was handmade by the owners with over 400 local show fliers from years past, and the pinball machines themselves appear well-kept and clean. Expect mainstays such as the late '80s Williams tables, or the more recent licensed machines like South Park. Nearly 20 amusement options line the walls but if gaming's not your thing, just hit the punk rock jukebox, grab Stag or PBR on the cheap and snag a booth. For those keen on cocktails, the bar provides alluring mixes with equally inventive names, like the Foxy Brown and the Cold War Revival. Go for an Iron Made In Manhattan and try your luck at pleasing Bride of Pinbot. The Silver Ballroom means punks and pinball.

"pinball, PBR, punk rock." this south side bar is welcoming and the bartenders are friendly. there are several pinball machines (play "dr. dude" first) and a jukebox that has many punk classics. $1 gets you three plays. they also serve pretty good food, which is a surprising departure from the frozen pizza heated and served in other bars like it.
Pinball, beards and tallboys: None of these things ever actually went out of style. Their popularity might wax and wane, but each one has always been considered cool to some degree. (The Who didn't write "Skee-Ball Wizard," for crying out loud.) And so Bevo's Silver Ballroom has built a legion of cools we'll call "flipsters," those south-city-dwelling, PBR-drinking, facial-hair-sporting, hard-rocking, pinball-playing men with impeccable taste. It's with more than a shot of good humor that... More »
You see it spelled out above the bar as soon as you walk in: Retox Center. Sobriety, like elevator music, serves an essential function in life, but inside the Silver Ballroom, it's hard to remember what that function is -- or, for that matter, why anyone bothers making elevator music when they could be playing punk rock instead. The Silver Ballroom pays homage to the Holy Trinity: Pabst, punk rock and pinball. It's got the only purely punk jukebox in town, and what better way to enjoy... More »
