Sports bars are today's colonial-era taverns, with frothy brews, communal spirit, and Founding Father look-alikes strewn about among spilled beer and crushed hopes. Revolutionize your culinary colony with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of food and drink at Bull & Bear, located in River North.

Bull & Bear combines the focused professionalism of Horace Grant with the state-of-the-art style of Jim McMahon to up the ante on sports bars in Chicago. Begin your dinner with the boneless barbecue wings ($11) or the house-cut truffle fries ($8) before diving mouth-first into Bull & Bear's bevy of entrees. Boost the value of romaine lettuce with the roasted-corn-topped Chopped Market Salad ($11), use every part of the mango-relish-and-Brie-cheese-topped bison burger ($14) to build a teepee of tastiness in your stomach plains, or discover brotherly love with the Little Philly Cheesesteak Sliders ($11).

Bull & Bear's weekend brunch (Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) melds the advantages of adulthood and childhood into brunchables such as bananas Foster french toast ($9) and house-made pop tarts ($7).

Grab a seat in sight of one of Bull & Bear's 25 plasma-screen televisions or its HD projection screen to catch the action of the big spelling bee, all while enjoying a glass of the house-made red sangria ($11), a glass of Goose Island 312 ($5), or any of the other inebriating drinks available for bovines, ursines, and Minotaurs alike. Bull & Bear also offers select booths with built-in, meter-monitored beer taps for quick and easy procuring of potables.


Five Citysearchers give Bull & Bear five stars, and 150 Yelpers give it three stars. Take a look at an interview with the owners on Chicago magazine's Last Girl Standing blog and see what Centerstage has to say:

  • There is a double entendre with the city's sports teams, of course, supported by dozens of 50-inch plasma TVs, but everything else in the two-tiered lofted space is all numbers and trade, marquee-ed by a live 40-foot stock ticker above a front room bar the same length. While a wall of classic, leather-buttoned executive chair-fashioned booths support the rear. We're not sure what their personal beer taps, attached to said tables with LED pay-by-the-ounce readings, have to do with Wall Street, but they're the second of their kind in the country, and supremely cool. – Gavin Paul, Centerstage
  • We had only inteded [sic] on staying to eat, but ended up staying much longer because we were really enjoying ourselves. – musicmaven234, Citysearch
  • We got a great booth with the beers on tap right there for us! – Ela G., Yelp
