Chicago's gay sports bar

Chicago's gay sports bar with a full kitchen (serves full menu till 10 p.m.) and extensive beer list. Multiple TVs to show all the games but also has theme nights with underwear contests and more. Fun, laidback crowd.

      Friendly gay sports bar
      A great place in Uptown to get some good food and watch the game with friends.

      A good bar to be in!
      Was here for a Blackhawks game and the atmosphere was electric! While the Hawks lost, the patrons really added to the experience! Flat screens throughout played all the hockey, womens tennis, and Sportcenter you could watch, the table service was AMAZING (Thanks Josh!!), and his recommendations for food was spot on! Drafts were $3.50, mixed drinks $6.50, and really tasty 'pub style' food = another visit! Well done!

      Fun times with friends!

      Just another gay bar...
      So I came here because it was supposed to be a "gay sports bar." I guess they think because they put some jerseys in a case it qualifies them. Staff: RUDE The bartender ignored me for awhile, then came up, raised an eyebrow. That was his way of asking what I wanted. I ordered their double bloody mary. "Spicy?" he asks. Believe it or not but that will be the single word he says for the duration of my stay!! No other conversation, so thanks, nada. He will spend most of his time in the corner playing with cupcakes and hugging and kissing a guy on the other side of the bar (and not washing his hands). DRINKS: The double bloody mary was a joke. Very weak The CROWD: I am supposedly in a sports bar and the first thing I hear one guy say to another guy is: "hey girl!" That told me it would be a one drink visit FOOD: I did not order any but looked at the menu and seems way over priced for bar food. Be warned. SPORTS BAR: So they advertise 20 TVs but less than 1/2 were playing sports, making sure Lady GaGa videos are on the majority (this is a Sunday Afternoon with plenty of Sports on). Another patron asks when the Cubs game starts and NO ONE working @ Crew knew. Really? Clue-less staff about sports.

      Sports on TV, Nice environs, and the gays
      Crew is a pleasant surprise. Super nicely appointed, nice bar staff and sports on the TV. Didn't eat, but this is a definite must hang out place (albeit not in the middle of either boystown or andersonville).

      Definite Must for Cubs Fans
      Love it cause the guys act like guys, but they're all still into guys! Love the stainless steel, the food is great, and the bartenders are hot and friendly.

      Always a good time
      Crew was one of the first places I went to when I moved to Chicago. The staff has always been very friendly and they're beer list is extensive. Add that to the great food they have and fact that you can always catch your favorite sporting event and it's easy to see why Crew is such a popular place.

      The food here is great...the staff is wonderful and the TV's playing sports instead of the 4hr mega mix of Cher makes it my absolute favorite place in Chicago.

      Outstanding sports bar
      The best place to see sports. The staff couldn't be nicer and the food is very good. I highly recommend it.

      Girls night pit stop
      My girlfriends and I actually stopped by Crew one night after leaving a horribly crowded bar earlier, and it was one hell of a good time! The outdoor seating is comfortable and they seriously had the biggest selection of beer (definitely recommend getting the beergaritas).

      Sports and more
      No attitude and good mix of people make this a neighborhood place that's great for dinner, snacks and/or just drinks. Packed and fun during sporting events with large screens everywhere.
