Soccer is the world’s most watched sport and even despite it being not quite as popular here in the States, who doesn't love tuning into the World Cup every four years? So, whether you're looking for a place to watch the World Cup, the Premier League, or a local Chicago Fire match, here are some of the Windy City's top soccer bards...
The Globe Pub
Although not as well known to Chicago’s mainstream population, The Globe Pub has been a Chicago favorite among soccer fans for years. Located at 1934 W. Irving Park Road in North Center, this soccer-themed pub is easy to get to via the Brown Line and offers a great selection of draft and bottled beers.
Situated in West Lakeview, A.J. Hudson’s Public House is has a quintessential pub-like atmosphere and plenty of space for large groups. The food menu is about what you would expect from a neighborhood pub, but the draft and bottle selection here is quite extensive.
Fado Irish Pub
If you live downtown and are looking for a great place to catch this year’s World Cup—but want to avoid the chaos of the large watch party gatherings—Fado is the perfect solution. Arguably one of Chicago’s most authentic Irish Pubs, the atmosphere here is exceptional on any given day or night, but especially when there’s a Soccer match happening.
