The Globe Pub opened in August 2004, with four TVs and four large screens, just in time for the Community Shield that year. Our objective was and still is to be the best bar to watch International Sports in Chicago.
Since then we have expanded and changed, including 20 smart TVs that offer DirecTv, Comcast and a variety of online services so we are able show as many International and National Sporting Events as possible.
Our beer list had humble beginnings but has grown to be one of the most expansive in the city, with 45 draft lines and 200+ bottled and canned beers.
In 2016, new owners took over and had a bigger, better vision for The Globe. In April 2018, we closed the bar completely and did a full remodel on our 100 year old building. Included in this are upgrades to the original space, technology, new bathrooms, a brand new kitchen and a 54 foot bar, one of the longest in the city. We also revamped our menu with a focus on fresh made, from scratch, items that include classic sports bar fare like burgers and wings while staying true to our English roots with favorites like our Full Fry Up and Fish & Chips. We’ve also been featured on Chicago’s Best for our Bangers and Mash. We reopened on June 8, 2018, six days before the World Cup kicked off.
We do a variety of events throughout the year but most notably is our annual Halloween Party as well as a 6pm toast on New Year’s Eve, to coincide with the midnight festivities in the UK and Ireland.
Whether you want to get together with a few friends, or rent out the entire bar, our space can seat 90 people with plenty of standing room and an easily changed floor plan, for any type of social gathering. For more information about booking a party with us, please email: email@example.com
We sponsor numerous recreational sports teams and have won a variety of awards including Best Pub Quiz for 11 years in a row, Best Soccer Pub in the US by the US Soccer Federation, and Best sports Bar in America by Nightclub & Bar Magazine.
We hope that you become part of our family and make The Globe Pub your home away from home.
We are The World’s Neighborhood Sports Bar.
