No matter where you sit, there’s a good chance you’ll be in full view of the game at Harry's Sports Bar—that's because the Countryside pub encircles bar-goers with more than 10 plasma and LCD screens, three oversize projection screens, and 30 or so standard TVs. As the sound system roars with cheers and jeers during Blackhawks games and UFC matchups, guests drink ice-cold drafts and top-shelf liquor while noshing on thin-crust pizzas, sandwiches, and other menu offerings. On the off chance there’s no game to watch, Harry’s provides live entertainment of its own, thanks to three pool tables, beer pong, and trivia nights.
Paisans supplies fresh pies with sauces concocted fresh daily, hearty pastas, and steaming sandwiches in a casual, familiar atmosphere. Start off with a six-piece ensemble of hot wings ($5.25) before infusing a disk with your own thin-crust symphony ($10.99 for 14") from a euphonious selection of more than 20 fresh embellishments such as ricotta, canadian bacon, and cream of bassoon ($1.95 a piece), or arrange ingredients on a stuffed or deep-dish dough canvas ($12.50 for 12", plus $1.90 per topping).
Mark's On 66 straddles the border of two distinct culinary philosophies, sating rumbling stomachs with a menu of timeless Tex-Mex standards while entertaining eyes and ears with sports-bar-style dartboards, TVs, and games. Overstuffed burritos and steamy fajitas intermingle with American-inspired burgers molded from quality beef and steak. Complimentary WiFi and matches on the in-house Wii add to an ambiance often tinged with upbeat notes and perfectly in-pitch meal orders sung by live musicians.
Wings Firehouse fuses athletics and pub grub into a sports-themed haven replete with stacked sandwiches, crispy salads, and chicken wings smothered in 15 types of sauces. Traditional and boneless wings sport saucy overcoats such as sweet and spicy mango pecosita, tangy barbecue, or super-hot 911 sauce. Layers of grilled chicken, ham, bacon, and mozzarella and cheddar cheese test the girders of the quadruple-decker club, and the veggie sandwich keeps things simple with sumptuous vegetables and guacamole. Crisp curly fries accompany sandwiches, and the caesar salad derives its crunch from croutons layered with parmesan cheese. Thick frothy sips of beer send bubbly rapids through mouths, clearing space like an avaricious lumberjack in a rainforest.
Whatever you want your Tilted Kilt experience to be, there are a few things you can always count on: ice cold beer and plenty of it, a mouthwatering menu full of the pub fare you love, a festive atmosphere full of fun and friends, and, last but not least…beautiful women eager to make you feel right at home
Maddanthony's Bar and Grill sports 2,000 square feet of lounging space with plasma televisions and pool tables. Waiters pile plates with food from sister restaurant LaCoco's Pizza & Pasta next door and pour suds until 4 a.m. Sunday–Friday, 5 a.m. on Saturdays, and forever during a time warp. Darts leagues fling projectiles at targets throughout the fall, and karaoke enthusiasts belt tunes on Tuesday nights. The bar maintains a young, energetic vibe with abundant events and eats, hosting nights centered around UFC matchups, boxing tournaments, and high-octane city-council meetings.
At Mister Mo's, friendly barkeeps and servers pour frothy brews and dish out delicious pub fare to gatherings of friends amid a convivial sports-bar atmosphere. A generous row of beers on tap emits tingly drinkables such as Blue Moon and Leinenkugel, and walls decorated with jerseys and sports memorabilia remind fans of the Bulls' successful championships and short-lived sitcom of the 1990s. While guests mingle over cocktails, patrons hurl miniature spears at the set of dartboards on the wall or bob their heads along to the live music blaring from the bar's stage.
