Are you ready for some football? Instead of camping out on your couch on February 7 to take in Super Bowl 50, don your favorite jersey and head over to one of these Chicago watering holes to catch the game (and the commercials):
Kroll’s South Loop
Most Chicago Bears fans are familiar with this bar and grill in the South Loop neighborhood near Solider Field. With more than 20 flat screen TVs and four projector screens, you won’t miss any second of the big game. 99 beers make up an impressive beer list, and the menu offers up bar food classics like hamburgers and pizzas. If you have kids in tow, make sure you grab a spot near the shuffleboard tables.
Municipal Bar + Dining Company
This 4,000 square-foot space in River North is everything an upscale Chicago sports bar should be. Settle in at one of the 19 tables or six private booths with views of 30 TVs or four 80-inch screens, and enjoy a selection of more than 100 beers and spirits. With décor inspired by the streets of Chicago and convenient parking nearby, Municipal Bar + Dining Company makes for a great place to watch this year’s Super Bowl.
The Rail Bar and Grill
Right in between Lincoln Square and Andersonville, The Rail provides a cozy location to settle in for Super Bowl Sunday. Exposed beams and brick along with two fireplaces will keep you comfortable, as well as a menu of sandwiches and salads, as well as your staple bar food items. With easy access to the Damen Brown Line L station, The Rail also boasts an all-you-can-drink Bloody Mary bar on Sundays with more than 60 fresh ingredients. Convinced yet?
Joe’s on Weed Street
If you’re looking for a crowd to watch the game alongside, Joe’s on Weed Street is a place for you. This 21-plus bar mimics more of a warehouse than your traditional bar and grill. Big crowds flock to Joe’s on game days, so expect the same on Super Bowl Sunday. While many bars welcome fans for specific teams, Joe’s welcomes anyone, so no matter who you’re rooting for, find a spot and enjoy the comradery and drink specials.
