For the 14th-straight year, the Chicago Bears aren’t playing in the Super Bowl. But don’t worry, two quarterbacks that the team could have acquired — the Kansas City Chiefs’s MVP Patrick Mahomes and the San Francisco 49ers’s Jimmy Garoppolo (a suburban native) — are playing. Instead of being frustrated by the state of Chicago’s NFL team, might as well find a fun bar with tasty food and beverage. These 20 spots have a mix of ambience, big screens, and bar food that will make watching football fun.
