March Madness: Best Alumni Bars to Watch College Basketball in Chicago

With the end of football comes a lull in the sports world, until March Madness brings the excitement back. (Unless you happen to be a Cavalier’s or Golden State Warriors fan) Some will even use their hard-earned vacation days just to watch the top 68 teams in men’s college basketball compete for the coveted NCAA Championship. Whether you are alumni or just a devoted fan, watch the madness with people who will cheer along with you. Not sure where in Chicago they are guaranteed to show your team? We’ve got you covered!

Cheer on the Wildcats at this old-school bar in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. With 45 televisions and 28 satellite feeds, you won’t miss a second of the madness.

 

Arizona State

 

Cubby Bear – Wrigleyville

 

Since opening day isn’t until April 9th for the Chicago Cubs, getting a spot at this popular Wrigleyville bar to root for the Sun Devils will be no problem. Plus, if you are part of an alumni club, you get $5 off drink packages for March Madness.

 

Auburn

 

Mary’s Rec Room – Andersonville

 

Though Mary’s give special attention to War Eagle’s, they cater to special requests as well. So bring your friends and enjoy the beers brewed in-house!

O’Leary’s Public House- River North

 

This warm Irish pub in Chicago is a great place to show your support for the Bearcats while enjoying some corned beef or fish n’ chips.

Gonzaga

 

Sully’s House- Lincoln Park

 

Cheer on the Bulldogs on one of any of the 30 big-screen TV’s, three projectors, or on the rooftop patio if Chicago weather allows. Every room has a separate sound system so you can hear only the games you are watching.

 

Kansas

 

Kincaid’s – Lincoln Park

 

Not only are they a Kansas bar, but they also have a whole room named “Lucy” just for KU alumni. Get on your red and blue and head to Kincaid’s for this year’s March Madness debauchery.

 

Purdue

 

The Fireplace Inn – Old Town

 

While this Chicago bar is known for their baby back ribs, it is still a great place to watch college basketball. If you are a Boilermaker fan, head out to Old Town this year for all of the March Madness.
