The NCAA college football season is in full swing, and as of this writing, the University of Michigan stands at No. 18 and are looking to improve. If you can't be in Ann Arbor to cheer them on, pick one of these great University of Michigan bars here in Chicago!
Rockit Bar is an exciting hot spot Wolverines this fall, and be sure to visit their Wrigleyville location, Rockit Burger Bar, for great food. Game day specials include: $5 Bloody Marys and Mimosas, $6 Jameson, Captain Morgan, $7 New Castle 22oz drafts, $15 Bud/Bud Light buckets, Absolut Lemonade and Avion Margarita Pitchers, and $20 Selected Craft Beer Buckets, Heineken and Amstel Buckets. Rockit also offers a valet in River North and will take reservations in Wrigleyville. Most importantly, this place is packed with televisions, so you won't miss a second of the action.
Duffy's Tavern has held the post as an official Michigan bar since it opened more than a decade ago. Duffy's, like many of its relative Bar1 establishments, offers great weekend food deals. Their famous weekend brunch comes in handy when getting ready for every Wolverine's game on Saturday. If it's an early Saturday game, you might want to avoid the all-you-can-eat and drink deal on Friday, because chances are you're not going to want to leave your bed Saturday morning.
Hanging a Michicagn flag isn't enough for Diag. They go above and beyond to make you feel like you're back in Ann Arbor on Saturday. Each Saturday, they gear their food and drink menu's towards blue and gold, to get you ready. Their deals include $4 22.oz Michigan Stadium Cups, $5 Michigan Blue Shots, and a $5 Food Menu. Take a shot and yell, "Go Blue Go" at Diag.
A great spot that's open late every night of the week, Matilda's is famous for their hand-made... everything. The blue cheese-stuffed filet mignon is outstanding and their flat breads are amazing.
