  • Bars Near US Cellular

    I'm heading to a Chisox game in May at the Cell and wanted to know if there are any good bars near the stadium. Thanks!

    You will find a complete list of establishments, addresses, and brief descriptions of each here:

    I recommend Mitchells Tap for a drink and Schallers Pump for food. They are both on Halsted St., maybe 4 blocks apart, around 6 blocks west of USCF.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance!

      That's easy, there are bars on all the windows and doors of most of the buildings and homes around US Cellular Field

            I walked a few blocks up just to find a hot dog stand when I was there two years back. This is one of those stadiums that just isn't by much of anything. You're better off having something in the city before you catch the L. It doesn't have the character of a lot of the newer parks, and it isn't in the setting of a lot of the newer parks either.

                Another thing that's clear is that W.Sox fans have no sense of humor. You're right guys, the South side of Chicago has never had a reputation of being just a bit rougher of a neighborhood.

                My last few trips to US Cellular have been extremely pleasant (except for the W.Sox always seeming to beat Detroit when I'm there). That said, I've never went to the Cell with the expectation of eating or drinking in the neighborhood before or after a game. Where as most of my trips to Wrigley have some kind of dinner or bar plans figured in. This could be because most of my friends live closer to Wrigley and therefor it makes it easier. It could also be that there are no places around the Cell to do so; I don't know, I haven't really looked.

                  We White Sox fans would have more of a sense of humor...if...

                  A) On a national/international scale, we weren't told for so many years that everything associated with our team (i.e., the ballpark, the surrounding neighborhood, etc.) was bad while everything associated with the Cubs was good.

                  B) We weren't told over and over again that it's about the "socializing around the ballpark" instead of the "action within the ballpark". When New Comiskey was put up, one of the biggest comparisons that would come up over and over again...and they only got louder when Camden Yards went up...was that the attractions around the stadium had to be as important as the game itself.

                  I know this is all regurgitated (sp?) arguments, but simply put...we White Sox fans are sick and tired of being told that our ballpark and such isn't a good place because it's not a "tourist attraction ballpark". We're tired of being told that we have to have bars and other hangout spots immedately across the street for our ballpark to be considered "legit". Our place has been bashed so much by local, national, and even international media that it's sickening to the core. Now, some of you make take this as some kind of an "inferiority complex", but let me ask you something...if you, by your local media, as well as national and international outlets, have been told that your favorite team's stadium is no good, but the one that's only 9 miles north of you is revered as some kind of a "shrine" despite its faults...how would you feel?

                  SkoBabe8 already posted a link to neighborhood establishments in an earlier post. Now no...these places aren't across the street from U.S. Cellular Field like the place across from Wrigley and other places. But, if you look and ask local fans and neighborhood residents, you'll not only find good places to hang out, but you'll also be suprised that the area around the ballpark is pretty neat. It's not "touristy" like the Lakeview/"Wrigleyville" neighborhood, but it's a pretty good, middle-class area that's being reviatlized like any other place that has a stadium built nearby.

                    Exactly my point. Your humor stinks because your joke was relevant in maybe 1995.

                    I'm not so sure I want unfunny people sitting next to me telling 10-15 year old jokes the next time I'm at any Bridgeport neighborhood establishments anyway. Maybe this is for the best. :cap:
