Best Sports Bars in Chicago

Best Sports Bars in Chicago

Shoreline Sightseeing wants you to experience what it’s like to be a sports fan in Chicago. After you enjoy one of our shoreline experiences to take in the great views of the city from our Chicago architectural boat tour on the Chicago River or by a cruise on Lake Michigan, you should head down to a local sports bar to watch a game by some of the best teams in sports. But where should you go? In the great city of Chicago, it seems as if there’s a sports bar on every corner. But have no fear, because we’ve listed the best sports bars below.


Fairways in Chicago

If golf if your game, then Fairways is the place you want to go. This bar seems like your traditional golf-themed sports bar on the first floor, but it has so much more to offer. Head upstairs, and you and your friends can enjoy virtual putting (by reservation only). To top it off, you’ll get your own mini fridge stocked with beer, and you can’t go wrong with the food there either.


Benchmark gives you the feeling that you’re at a baseball game. The roof of this building actually retracts, so you can feel like you’re in a stadium. Each booth has its own TV, so you can have a front-row view of the games. Plus, there’s a giant video wall that ensures everyone in the bar can see what’s going on.

Bull & Bear

If you’re looking for a place to watch the game, enjoy some great food, and taste some delicious beer, then Bull & Bear is the right place. You can enjoy game-day treats like hot dogs, buffalo wings, and more. Plus, there’s a wall filled with taps so you can go and fill up your own drink when you’re out. To add to the sports theme, there are so many TVs throughout this establishment so you don’t have to worry about missing a minute of the game.

Cubby Bear Lounge

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Cubs fan or not, Cubby Bear Lounge is one of the hottest sports bars this city has to offer. You’ll get your fix of bar food and enjoy the company of other sports fans in the city. Plus, this is the place to go if you want to enjoy some billiards while watching the game on one of the many TVs. And depending on when you go, you can also enjoy some live music.
