Final Four

It's down to the wire for college basketball's annual championship—and there's no shortage of places to catch the game in the neighborhood (especially with many Badger and Spartans living in the area!). Here are some of our favorites:

Andersonville Brewing Company, 5402 N Clark, Andersonville
Grab one of Andersonville Brewing's in-house beers and root on your favorite team!

The Brixton, 5420 N Clark St, Andersonville
A fan of college basketball, but not a fan of sports bars? The Brixton is the most subdued option for your game watching—their big screen TVs are usually hidden behind mirrors, so you don't even realize they're there. Plus, the carefully-crafted cocktails and modern American dining are a cut about the usual beer and burger pub grub.

Fat Cat Lounge, 4840 N Broadway St, Uptown  

The Rail, 4709 N Damen Ave, Lincoln Square

Feel like staying in to watch the game? Each Guesthouse Hotel suite is equipped with large, flatscreen TVs and sound systems, so you can kick up your feet and enjoy the game in the comfort of your home-away-from-home. Head to the nearby grocery store, Mariano's, to stock up on Game Day snacks or fire up your suite's gas grill to complete your court-side experience!
