Not only does this bustling Old Town sports hub boast 107-inch HDTVs and over 90 beers on tap, they also go so far as to employ a “video DJ” to play music videos and internet clips during commercials. The pour house has one of the biggest beer lists in the city and plenty of rich mahogany that would make a more sporty Ron Burgundy break out his vintage Chargers jersey. You can watch the game on massive flatscreens that line the bar or stop by after 11pm for their late-night menu which includes a comically sized 1.5-pound Bavarian pretzel.
This otherwise tame '70s-style neighborhood sports bar erupts on game day, where the action is screened on two ginormous projectors (a 190-inch and a 150-inch) in addition to eight 65-inch screens and three 60-inchers. The menu is known for its great comfort food -- burgers, waffle fries, and criminally underrated wings to pair with a well-rounded beer menu and craft cocktails like The Buck (whiskey, lime juice simple syrup, ginger beer). Stop by for Bears game day specials like $18 domestic buckets or $6 beer and a shot.
This always-happening spot may boast one of the best sidewalk patios in the city, but during game day the real action unfolds inside, where the lively crew of patrons are always primed and ready to scream like maniacs at the TV. The popular gathering place is also well known for its grub, including some of the most well respected wings in the city. Stop by on Saturdays or Sundays for football specials including $6 Don Julio shots. But if you fail to plan ahead, be prepared to wait.
While it is best known for that other kind of football, one of the city’s best international soccer bars also makes a damn fine spot to hunker down for some more local sporting action. With 30 TVs and a rabid crowd of fanatics from all corners of the globe, they’re also serving up English-style pub fare including fish and chips and shepherd’s pie in addition to Scotch eggs and three types of wings. Grab a spot early for a brunch of Guinness French toast or traditional English breakfast and keep the party going all afternoon.
