A mostly dispassionate crowd—Bears fans to the core, we presume—kept one eye on the game last night at The Ogden (1659 W. Ogden Ave.; 312-226-1888) as the Giants beat the Patriots, 21–17. The polished sports bar opened in the shadow of the United Center on December 30 with 23 TVs, a beer list of 18 drafts, plus some 80 cans and bottles, and a menu from Rodney Staton, formerly of Bite Cafe. Sunday’s crowd may have been nonchalant, but here’s betting patrons get fired up tonight, when the bar tunes its flat-screens to the Bulls game against the Nets. In the meantime, browse our photos below.
