Wrigleyville's premier country sports bar takes its name from University of Alabama coach Bear Bryant's trademark houndstooth fedora, and this Wrigleyville bar is pure ‘Bama from the crimson color scheme to the black-and-white photos of Bryant. Look for the namesake checkered print throughout the venue from the bar's logo, a hound dog wearing a houndstooth fedora, to the checkered wallpaper in the Trophy Room. The Southern-inspired venue is peppered with eclectic design elements from deer-antler chandeliers to a rawhide-inspired bar top, and features seating options from tufted banquettes to high-top tables.
The raucous party-centric saloon offers a Southern-influenced American menu with signature dishes such as pulled pork sandwich with five-hour braised pork shoulder with a Memphis-style dry rub and house Maker's Mark BBQ sauce; and a Southern fried chicken sandwich, with buttermilk-soaked chicken breast, signature seasonings, jalapenos, coleslaw and chipotle ranch.
The bar hosts live music on the Bud Light Artist Stage Thursday and Friday nights. Look for 20 draft beers, a lineup of 40s (served in a brown paper bag), and an extensive canned beer selection, plus a cocktail list with Dixie-inspired drinks such as the Houndstooth Hunch Punch, made with moonshine, pineapple juice and Sierra Mist.
Alabama-centric country bar with honky-tonk music, 40-ounce beers & Southern-influenced menu.
