Best Sports bars to watch Warriors vs Rockets

I'll be making my first trip to Chicago with some friends and being from the Bay Area, we are going to want to catch the Warriors game. Any recommendations for any bars with a good amount of TV's and good craft beers?

Is this for Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday? Also where will you be staying? The Billy Goat may have it on, but they are pretty biased to Chicago Sports teams.

Where are you staying at? In the loop, Stocks and Blondes would be good. Very good beer selection and lots of tvs, always tuned to sports.

I am staying in River North but I don't mind traveling a little bit if there are better options outside of the area especially since I want to explore other neighborhoods. I'll be there for the Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday games if it goes to game 6. Will be wanting to watch all 3

Timothy O'Toole's is a bit east but would tick your boxes. Entrance is at corner of Ontario St and Fairbanks Ct, you go right down a set of (pretty steep and narrow) stairs to the bar and seating areas. Looks like a very small place from the street since the entire place is below street level.

There are a host of bars in the Lincoln Park neighborhood (Fullerton Red Line stop or #22 Clark St bus)...Lincoln Ave between around Wrightwood and Webster have places, also along Clark St.

Also of course there are a ton of sports bars around Wrigley Field. I'm sure they'd have the game, maybe not sound though (then again it is playoffs).

Perhaps Jake Melnick's in River North.

As long as you are exploring, head up to Wrigley Field, plenty of bars will have the games on.

I think Chicago fans more root against Cleveland not the Warriors.
