OK, first things first: Brickhouse Tavern (3647 N. Clark St., Lake View), the new sports bar at the Park at Wrigley, is massive. Like, big enough to support four separate bar areas inside it. Big enough to give you prime TV views from wherever you’re sitting. Big enough to hold you, and probably everyone you know, within spitting distance of the Friendly Confines.
We stopped by on a weekend the Cubs were traveling (instead, the park was hosting a Jimmy Buffett concert), and even still it was humming. The bar’s named for famed broadcaster Jack Brickhouse, and unsurprisingly, there’s Cubs memorabilia everywhere you look, making it an ideal place to watch the game.

Here’s what we saw when we stopped by.
