Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub, a gathring place for locals and tourists alike for over 20 years and counting.
River North, Chicago
Shortly after the warehouses closed and long before the largest concentration of art galleries in the US outside of Manhattan opened, Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub opened its doors to the world. Sporting the comfortable feel of a corner pub in what was then more no-man's land than a tourist destination, a local columnist dubbed it "a neighborhood pub without a neighborhood. So be it!
The combination of 28 satellite, cable and Internet feeds and 45 TV monitors allows the viewing of any sporting event from any seat in the house. Guaranteed.
Over two decades later, Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub continues to serve locals and travelers alike with a friendly smile, a cold pint of draught beer and a late kitchen open to 3am serving a full restaurant menu.
