The 8th Best Sports Bar in the US is an iconic spot in Illinois
Why not watch the Big Game at one of the 10 Best Sports Bars in the Country, it just so happens to be located right here in the Land of Lincoln!
According to gayot.com Sluggers in Chicago has been ranked as one of the 10 Best Sports Bars in the Country coming in at 8th place on the list. Sluggers came in behind some massive sports bars like Beer Park in Vegas, Game On in Boston, and even Lester's in St. Louis. Gayot.com says this about Sluggers...
"Located on Chicago's North Side, adjacent to Wrigley Field, this hang is a favorite with locals thanks to indoor batting cages, an extensive game room and many TVs. Sustenance consists of deep-dish pizzas, sandwiches and appetizers...The split-level layout provides plenty of space to chill and catch scores."
I couldn't agree more with gayot.com that Sluggers belongs in the top ten of this list, it is a great sports bar. The bottom level is a massive bar space with tons of floor space, huge beer lists, great food, and specialty drinks as well. But the upstairs to Sluggers is what makes it special, it has an arcade and a full-on batting cage set up, not just one but multiple batting cages! Now you do have to be careful after having a couple of beers stepping into the cages with an 80mph fastball coming at you, but Sluggers is a Wrigleyville must, and one of my all-time favorite sports bars. Also, shoutout to Lester's in St. Louis for making this list, while I have never been people have told me it is a must if you are looking for a great place to watch a game.
