Counted 17 TVs that I could see from my table, great for watching sport. Food ok, beers were cold, service good. Would eat there again.

The first thing you’ll notice about The Scout is there isn’t a spot on any wall that’s not filled with screens. Everything worth watching is on multiple screens and seating is positioned to provide great viewing angles. It reminds me of the sports rooms in...More

My drinking buddy and I ended up here by accident, when our green line train was halted at nearby Roosevelt station due to an 'incident' - it seemed churlish to not have another drink before ordering a car to get back home. There is rather...More

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park
