I'm not a huge sports nut, but I do like watching a game once in a while. My only rule? The place had better have good food, good beer or something else awesome aside from the number of TVs.
Toons has it all - great bar food (BBQ, wings, slow-cooked pulled turkey sandwiches) beer, and a good crowd.
It's always busy, but it's got an incredible list of craft beers and plenty of TVs. Plus, $.20 wings on Mondays.
Will's is what a neighborhood sports bar is supposed to be. It's got the Packers game on in the background, but it also has comedy night, euchre leagues and tons of other fun for the non sports fans.
If you're a gay jock, this is the bar for you. Heck, if you're into gay jocks, this is the bar for you too. A standard sports bar with a queer flavor and a friendly atmosphere, where no one will look at you strangely when you're checking out the football players tight ends.
The menu might look like average bar food, but it's all made from scratch with quality ingredients. Make sure to try the sandwiches that have made the Fifty/50 famous.
OTS takes the "sports bar" (if we can even call it that) to a whole new level. Their homemade charcuterie has a cult following all over Chicago, and the celery caesar is unlike any salad ever seen at a restaurant with TVs.
The upstairs bar (with the retractable roof) is the place to be at this Uptown hotspot. Hot scene, a decent wine list and a darn good prosciutto pizza.
If you're into game, this is the place for you. Plus, there's a giant bear behind the bar. If you're looking to watch the game, there are plenty of TVs - but if you want a cozy dinner, just pick a table away from the action.
Not great for a quiet date night, but if you actually want great food along with your beer and big screen TVs, Stout is a good choice. The dining room is pretty, busy and filled with brass and dark woods.
Home of the famous foot-long grilled cheese. The beer list spans two huge pages, and the 38 TVs mean that you'll never miss a minute of the game.
