Like a box of fine china or a man covered in ants, cocktails just beg to be shaken. Stir up the nightlife with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bar fare and drinks at Q Sports Bar & Grill, located in Downers Grove and Darien.
Q Sports Bar & Grill enthralls an assembly of fans with tasty bar eats and an all-star line-up of pool, darts, and other gaming options. Warm up taste buds with appetizers such as golden southwestern fries, loaded with melted cheese, bacon, and scallions ($5.50, Downers Grove; $6.50, Darien) before moving on to a hearty main course. Layered selections including build-your-own burgers ($8, Darien location only) and the sweet-and-tangy pulled-pork sandwich ($6.50 both locations) sate carnivorous cravings, and the veggie wrap, a large flour tortilla brimming with cheese, guacamole, and garden-culled edibles ($6, Downers Grove location only), exercises meat-free jaws without resorting to chewing on bamboo. Diners may pair bites with a pint ($2–$5), bottle ($3–$4), pitcher ($8–$15), or antique claw-footed bathtub of beer. Each location sports slightly different bills of fare, so be sure to check the menus for Downers Grove and Darien to plan out your evening.
Though their menus may be fraternal twins, Q's dual interiors are nearly identical, sporting billiards, foosball tables, and squishy bean bags. A sizeable stock of high-definition flat-screen televisions feature professional sports and amateur tortoise races, and a video arcade provides halftime entertainment or mid-match distractions.
Q Sports Bar & Grill
Q Sports Bar & Grill couldn't fit all its pub attractions under one roof. There were too many beanbags, not enough room for the pool tables, and nowhere for the darts to hide. So, guests can get their Q fix at locations in both Darien and Downers Grove. An Internet jukebox plays convivial tunes as waiters take food orders, describing, if asked, the kitchen's bounty of housemade chicken wings, turkey clubs, Angus-beef burgers (Darien), and burrito and taco entrees (Downers Grove).
Both restaurants invite patrons to wend through a sea of green-felt pool tables and keep in touch with sports via high-definition TVs. Additionally, Q's Darien location boasts a large projection screen and in-booth models in addition to the regular wall-mounted TVs. The Darien spot is also the place to catch performances by local and nationally touring musicians or soak up vitamin D on an outdoor patio.
