Where to Watch the Blackhawks in the Loop
With 3 games left to take the Stanley Cup, we Chicagoans need to get out and support our Blackhawks. For those who like watching with friends or, like me, do not have a television, we’ve got you covered with Blackhawks fan-friendly restaurants and bars in the Loop!
In addition to showing all the games on their TVs with audio, the owners have “put on the red light” to showcase the team’s signature colors. If you’re a beer drinker, be sure to grab the 22oz pour of Bud or Bud Light stadium cups. It's $5 each and customers can take the cups home.
Come here for a true Chicago experience. Sit above the fray as the classic Windy City breeze and nearby El create a great backdrop for supporting this city’s hockey team. Monday through Friday there are food and drink specials every night, as well as beer towers to share with friends. Plymouth’s rooftop is also open until midnight…perfect for those nail-biting double overtimes!

I’ll quote their Facebook page: “Big games call for big buckets!” And the buckets are, indeed, large. For $20, Blackhawks fans can get a bucket of their delicious wood-grilled chicken wings. Thirsty? You can also get a bucket of five beers for $20. This spot is conveniently located near almost every train line downtown, so rally some friends and dig in!
This spot has so many TVs you could get whiplash spotting them all. On game day, join your fellow fans for a refined sport-watching experience. Yes, they have BBQ brisket and wings, but they also serve a white truffle chicken breast and a filet mignon trio. Their microbrew selection is also impressive, featuring rotating and seasonal offerings.
