Thinking about cutting out of work early to go watch the game. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good bar in or near the Loop to watch the game at?
Thanks

There's Cactus on Wells and Van Buren, Bar Louie on Polk and Dearborn, South Loop Club on State and Harrison, Casey's on Dearborn between Polk and Harrison and Elephant and Castle on Adams between LaSalle and Dearborn (maybe Clark).

Not that I know alot of bars around the loop.:cool:

:gulp:

I go to the one in my building alot-Poag Mahone's in the 175 W. Jackson building. Lot of Cubs fans though. Kinda got screwed there last Friday.

Mother Hubbards on Hubbard. Last year I know that a few WSIers would go there for games. Has at least 25 tv's there, some decent food and prices for downtown.

I've been to Dugan's which is on Halsted in Greektown. You will see Cub fans, but there are always lots of Sox fans there.

I agree and they even have pool tables for when the Sox start stomping the flubbies and you get bored...:bandance:

That's really crazy I used to be on the 5th floor but we moved so now I'm 440 S. LaSalle. We're going to Around the Corner, it's on Franklin just north of Van Buren. Good cozy bar.

I refuse to go there. They have a 15 foot banner outside proclaiming it a Cub Bar.

Always the place to go. Big Jim takes care of his patrons. I would call ahead whenever you go and reserve a table and say you want to watch the Sox!

I went there to watch the Wednesday game against the Marlins. They reluctantly put the game on for us.
