Best Place in Chicago to Watch The 2022 World Cup

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar starts Nov 20th and every match will be on at Theory! With games on over 35+ TV’s in our upscale bar, amazing food and specials, you are in the perfect place to cheer on your team for the World Cup!

Theory is the spot for 2022’s World Cup games, and Thrillist agrees:

An upscale take on the Cup with craft beer and avocado toast
This Downtown sports bar with an upscale twist will be screening all World Cup games on more than 35 TVs, with VIP option for 25 people to watch on a 133-inch screen if you’re too sophisticated to mingle with the general population. Grab buckets of domestic brew or craft offerings from the likes of Cigar City and 5 Rabbit to pair with menu entrees including avocado toast and beef sandwiches. This is a fancier spot than some of the other bars on this list, and hooliganism is discouraged, but they also helpfully post all their daily specials for the week ahead of time on their website to help folks plan ahead.

The 22nd men’s FIFA World Cup tournament will see 32 teams battle it out in the group stage after qualifying via five different regions – Asia, Africa, South America, North America/Central America and Europe (no nation from Oceania qualified). From there, 16 will make it through to the knockout stages.

Some of the World’s best players are playing at the tournament, including Paris Saint-Germain trio Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, Portugal’s all-time leading scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, England captain Harry Kane, Poland and Barcelona superstar Robert Lewandowski, 2018 Golden Ball winner and Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric and Chelsea goalkeeper and reigning Africa Cup of Nations champion Edouard Mendy.

Theory is looking to match that star power… when it comes to food, service, and comfort, we are the place you want to be. Make your reservation today and join us at Theory, 9 W. Hubbard. We look forward to welcoming you.
