49er Bar in Chicago

This is great news! I've been stuck watching the Niners in the corner of a crappy bar with no sound for 4 years now! Great find just time time for the playoffs!!!
Been looking for a Chicago Niners bar for years and Red Brick is only a few miles from me! Is there going to be a group here to watch the playoff game this Saturday?

I dont know about Chicago, but I know of a place in Niles. A suburb outside of Chicago. Its called Chasers, on Milwaukee ave. Shows all the games. Look it up. Good luck!
The wife and I went to the Red Brick for the monday night game against Pittsburgh. It was a blast. Friendly people, good food, and a great game. We could not ask for more. We have been out of town for the games against Seattle and St. Louis, but will be back at the Red Brick for the New Orleans game. Everybody that can make it out should come. You wont regret it! Hopefully we still have a couple games left to get together for this season!

So is this still the happening place for 49er fans?RedBrick? Would love to go and celebrate with my fellow Faithful the NFC Championship!
Yes, we are all still meeting. The Red Brick sold to The Globe next door, so now we are meeting at The Globe. Lots of people there for the playoff game last week. Everybody than can come out should, it is a blast!
My time in Chicago (1992-2002) was mostly as a poor college student and basically the only Niners I got to saw was when they were on National TV. Times have changed since, but it's always irked me how the NFL works so hard to make the 49ers inaccessible to me if I don't live in the Bay Area
On second thought...don't do this, it's a big freaking mistake. Unless you want to blow tons of money on really bad food, lousy service, and really loud and obnoxious atmosphere to ruin your enjoyment of watching the game.

In 1997 and 1998, I started going to Dave and Busters up on Clark St. in the Near North Side. That stopped in 1999 though when D&B stopped getting Sunday ticket. I tried the ESPNZone.....boy what a mistake that was. I blew all this money on really bad food, lousy service, a really crowded, loud and obnoxious atmosphere too. I never went back there for a game again. For a while I just did radio and followed on the internet. Later I moved to DC, where I found a pretty good local bar and a number of 49er fans there too.

Sweet! see you then
There was a good 30 niners fan at the Globe going crazy for the Divisional game last Saturday and it seemed like everyone had a great time. Everyone should come out to support the niners in the NFC Championship!

When I used that for the Boston area when I was there neither of the bars still existed!
We're at the globe pub now! Come on by!
Since Red Brick is no longer there and is has now merged with the globe pub (primarily a soccer bar), where will we go to take over and make a new 49ers bar here in Chicago?
Hey all!

Towards the end of last season we started going to Red Brick as it was named our (un)official 49ers bar. Well they were bought out by the bar next door, The Globe Pub, which is a bar that's pretty into international soccer. Anyone know of a place to go to watch our beloved Niners? Or shall we just take over the Globe Pub like we did for the NFC Championship game! We had a great turnout, about 30 of us. I'd love to have a regular place to go every week this season! If anyone has suggestions, or knows bar owners who will let us hang some flags, and deck the place out 49er style, please let us know!!
Hey glad to know there are many 9er fans here in Chicago. Well we go to Buffalo Wild Wings in Mount Prospect but other than that I can't be much help.
