Up Market

A Sox Bar Even a Cubs Fan Could Love

If you're a Cubs fan, you know the simple pleasure of sipping an ice-cold rooftop beer.

If you're a Sox fan, well, let's just say you're down a few rounds.

To even things up, allow us to suggest Market, your new sports den, beer garden and cocktailing perch in the West Loop. Market is set to throw out its first beer a week from today, so we figured it was about time you got a peek inside…

Walking in, you'll probably be struck by how un-sports-bar-y it immediately seems. True, the co-owner is White Sox GM Kenny Williams, and sports show up in the menu with offerings like the Fifty-Yarder, a mixed grill skewer served with a tiny goal post. (No word yet on cookies shaped like little footballs.) But the surroundings are actually slick enough that you could bring a date here for dinner, no problem.

In any case, when the game's on, you'll be in the adjacent beer garden, equipped with special all-weather/glare-resistant televisions, allowing you to spend weekend afternoons second-guessing Ozzie's lineup.

And then there's the roof. More of a post-dinner/game destination, you and your friends will want to head up here, grab a semi-enclosed cabana, knock back a few cold ones and admire the stunning views of Willis Tower.

It's the Comiskey of skyscrapers.
