Editorial Review of Sports Corner

Sports Corner can't really be talked about without talking about the old Sports Corner. Time was, there was a divey little place on the corner here with a bunch of regulars with character. They've since renovated, and the place is much, much different. Sports Corner is now a three-level bar and restaurant that is a temple to sports and getting you drunk as efficiently as possible.

Not that that's not necessarily a bad thing. Thing is, the place is more a theme park than a bar, and should be regarded as such. Dozens of televisions are attached literally end-to-end on the wall in a confusing display, and the waitresses are (way) hotter than they are experienced. On the other hand, you're going to a sports bar on Sheffield and Addison, and complaining about nearly any element of that would be like complaining about the prices or service at a movie theater concession stand: It is what it is, and don't expect more than that.

Most menu items are less than $12 and are standard bar fare. Be street smart and avoid paying $8 for a Stella in a plastic cup.

Average cost: <$10
