List of Illini Bars

#1
I thought this would be a fun and useful thing to compile! I wanted to get a running list of "Illini bars" in non-Champaign cities. This can include places that advertise themselves as supportive of the Illini, places where Illini fans/clubs regularly meet or even just places that have Illini stuff on the walls. As you'll notice, this is not a highly scrutinized list (for example, Brickhouse Tavern posts stuff about being an Illini bar but also gives shout-outs to Notre Dame and Northwestern). I will start with the ones I'm aware of and edit the list with any new additions:

ILLINOIS
Chicago

Brickhouse Tavern (Wrigleyville)
Dublin's Bar & Grill (Gold Coast)
Joe's on Weed St. (Goose Island)
Mother Hubbard's (River North)
Schoolyard Tavern & Grill (Lake View)
Timothy O'Toole's (Streeterville)

Downers Grove
Orange & Brew Bottle Shop and Tap Room

That's all I am aware of, but I think it would be cool to add to this list! That way if I ever find myself traveling during an Illini game in the right city, I'll know where to head. :cool:

Love the name. Food and drink

as far as I know NYC has three Crystal Palace bars but 0 for the Illini..

The Metro St Louis Illini Club regularly meets at Tin Roof for games. The Over/Under Bar & Grill downtown has some Illini gear on the walls.

Huntsville, AL
Having recently moved to Huntsville we are looking for ILLINI connections to maybe get a group together here.
