NFL Bar Deals

If you can't be at Soldier Field, you can still get discounted drinks at these Chicago Bears bars.

Can you believe it's NFL season already? Seems like just a few weeks ago that Jay Cutler threw five interceptions. If you feel like you're ready to watch the Bears again, you'll probably want to stop by one of these football-friendly bars for a discounted drink or two on Sundays (and Mondays).

Division Ale House
Sunday specials at this Wicker Park bar include $5 PBR with a shot of Jameson, $4 Burning River Pale Ale drafts and a $7 build-your-own bloody mary bar.

Once football season begins, the River North bar and restaurant will be open every Sunday from 11 a.m.-midnight. On those days (plus Mondays and any soccer game days), English will offer you a choice of an Angus or turkey burger and a domestic bottle for just $10. Also on Mondays, domestic bottles are $3 each.

Hawkeye's Bar & Grill
This Little Italy bar will offer shuttle service (for a fee) for each and every home game.

Jake Melnick's Corner Tap
Mondays are always special during football season, but it gets better at Jake Melnick's, where each table will get to flip a coin for the chance to win a free order of wings, get a discounted bill or other prizes. The bar will also offer half-price bottles of Rogue beer.

Joe's Bar
You can hunt high and low, but you probably won't find a better Bears-related deal than this: $3.75 pitchers of Coors Light every Sunday, all season long. 'Nuff said.

Timothy O'Toole's
Stop by this subterranean bar on Sundays for a chance to win tickets to a Bears game. Sunday specials include $16 Miller/Coors family buckets.

What's better than watching the Bears game with your boys? Adding brunch to the equation. Every Sunday, this Lincoln Park bar offers a $20 package including a brunch entree, mimosas, bloody marys, Miller Lite or Coors Light.
