Murphy's Bleachers (Chicago)

Murphy's Bleachers, right across form the famous Wrigley Field, Second oldest baseball park in USA. Home of the Chicago Cubs baseball club.  I don't need to give you the address or directions as once in Chicago it is easy to find and nestled in the middle of a residential neighbourhood.  They have sit up bars as you can see from the photos. Tons of sports memorabilia on the walls.  I can only imagine what it is like the few hours leading up to a cubs game!!  When I was there the Cubs were not playing so it was pretty quites.  I did manage to go to a Cubs game later.....but that is another story!!  They have over 20 different types of beer on tap. For lunch I had to go with the hot dog, it came Chicago style which means no ketchup, it has diced tomatoes, dill pickle spear, mustard a few spices and very good!!  I would love to go here before a Cubs game on a nice warm sunny day...aaahhh!  Two thumbs up for sure!!
The following is what they say on their menu:
I has been a fixture for over 80 years and a haven for Cubs fans. ( the name has changed a few times over the years)  It  became the legend when Chicago Police Detective Jim Murphy took over.   He had a vision and transformed an entire neighbourhood.  Beside expanding the tavern inside and out, Jim was one of the first to display sports memorabilia! He also in 1984 opened the first roof top n 1984 sparking a movement that would define Wrigleville.  It is still a family owner and run business, and serving locally brewed craft beer.
