With the second-oldest ballpark in America and over a century of games played, the Cubs have some of the most unique and loyal fans in MLB. So it should come as no surprise that Chicago-inspired bars have popped up all over the United States. From our neighbors in Michigan all the way to Hawaii, you can find Cubbies just about everywhere! Here are the best Chicago cubs bars around America, minus the obvious bests in Chicago.
35 Bovet Rd, San Mateo, California 94402
Yup, you can travel almost 2,000 miles and still feel at home at this Chicago-inspired pizzeria. Twenty-nine years ago, owner Bob (Bubba) Yeats thought, “Why not take food from two delicious places – Texas and Chicago – and share it with Southern California folks, who also love great food?” And during football season, you’ll find lots of locals cheering on #DaBears, too!
18200 W Colfax Ave, Golden, Colorado 80401
Get a taste of Chicago in the heart of the Rockies. Longtime Cub fans, Paula and Skip Perry have been serving up Chicago style food and broadcasting Cubs game since 2008. They have a great sense of humor writing on their website, “P.S. If you’re a Packers fan, we also broadcast every game, but you will have to watch them on the 12″ TV’s in the rest rooms!!!”
2535 Coyne Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96826
Don’t miss a single game — even in paradise. This sports bar broadcasts every NFL and MLB game. And if there’s something you want to watch, just ask and the folks at RB will do their best to make it happen.
945 10th St E, Palmetto, FL 34221
Traveling south to the Sunshine State? Drop into Joey D’s for an authentic Vienna Beef Hot Dog, a traditional Chicago thin crust pizza, or one of their famous Chicago Stuffed Pizzas. Top it off with a few innings of America’s favorite pastime on their big screen TVs and you’re golden!

112 S Main Street, Zionsville, Indiana 46077
Cubs fans can be Hooisers, too. Head to “Home of da beef” for some Chicagoland eats. Both owners Jeff and Johnny claim to love the Indianapolis area, but miss what they consider some of the World’s Finest Foods. Enjoy lofty open spaces and multiple TVs throughout their establishment.

6750 Mercy Road, Omaha, Nebraska 68106
For over 30 years, Pauli’s has been THE place to be for Cubs games in the Big O. You’ll notice Chicago decor around the bar — from a hand painted “C” flag and various Cubs license plates hanging in their hallway. Kick back with a Pabst Blue Ribbon and you’ll feel right at home.
12 Avenue A, New York, New York 10009
The Big Apple has top notch sports bars, but this local favorite is the best spot for Cubbies. You might feel like you’ve stepped into Timothy O’Toole’s or O’Callaghans with classic Irish vibes in the heart of the East Village. Grab a cold one with your buddies and reminisce on the 2016 World Series win.

Visiting the Mitten? Check out the “The Other Wrigley Field” for some fun! Take selfies outside against the ivy covered walls, under the scoreboard, beside the replica of the infamous Billy Goat, or with a cardboard cutout of a Cubs MVP. The head in for plenty of memorabilia that celebrates the Cubs back when they were still the Lovable Losers.
