The 5 Best Big Ten Bars In Chicago

We all know Chicago is a mecca for Big Ten alumni. All 14 Big Ten schools have destination bars in the city, so sure, I could list all them out, but I’m not.

I’ve lived in Chicago for about seven years now and have experienced which bars do it best. These bars are the perfect mix of school spirit, intensity, deals, and atmosphere.

5. Duffy’s Tavern and Grille – Michigan

2. Joe’s Bar – Illinois and Indiana (also, there’s no better place for a country concert as far as I’m concerned)
