USA Today: Best Sports Bars in Chicago

USA Today 10Best, Jacky Runice | 10best.com

The stretch of Clark Street near Wrigley Field is lined with new upscale bars, but this longtime Wrigleyville sports bar doubles as a mini indoor sports complex. Not only can you watch baseball, but you can also hit a few yourself. The second floor has batting cages, Skee-Ball, golf, electronic basketball, air hockey, hoops and more. And that's in addition to the standard video games, pool tables and dartboards. Music, dancing and drinking go on all night long here, too. While primarily a Chicago Cubs bar, it's owned by two Indiana University alumni, so Indiana Hoosiers games are also broadcast. Count on over 30 TVs, six 10-foot screens and HD Plasma TVs throughout the bar. Sandwiches, wraps, burgers, wings, pizza, salads round out the typical sports bar menu.

Recommended for Sports Bars because: In a neighborhood filled with sports bars, this one stands out for its second floor filled with sports activities.


Jacky's expert tip: There's a dueling piano show every Friday and Saturday night and after every Cubs home game.
