The UC's OTHER option!
This place was great. Good elbow room to move around, great atmosphere during the games, and plenty of bar counter to get drinks from. If you are looking for a bar before/after going to the United Center, take the two block walk south of Madison and hit this place. You won't be disappointed.

Great place to go pre-game
Great place to go before a bulls or hawks game. Close to the united center, good beer selection, good food, free shuttle to the game and you can park across the street for $9.

Great specials; near United Center
Really good pub food. Over 40 beers and tasty wine selections. Different food and drinks specials every night. Free parking out back then take the free shuttle or short walk to United Center. Friendly service. You must give it a try!

The brisket and the brisket
The brisket and the brisket sandwich were phenomenal! The prices were reasonable. The beer and drink selections were great. We did not wait for service at all and actually had many wait staff members stop at our table asking if we needed help with anything. The free parking and the shuttle service to and from the United Center was a HUGE BONUS!! This will become a new favorite stop prior to every United Center we attend from now on!!

A favorite in the city
One of my favorite places To go for lunch a quick drink but most of all before anything at United Center. Before or after a Hawks, Bulls games a concert whatever. The free shuttle rocks. The bartenders are awesome. Love this place. Rate it a 7 on a 1-5 scale. Yes. That awesome.

If you are going to the united
If you are going to the united center for any event, this is the place to meet. Its within easy walking distance and offers a shuttle for those who would rather ride. Convenient parking in the back and across the street. Nothing to excite the foodie but very good sandwiches and sides. Large selection of beer on tap. Its a big space perfect to meet your large group before or after a game. I will be going back.

United Center pre-party gem
Perfect place before your next event at the United Center. Free parking behind the restaurant is sweet. And even better is the 1/2 price small tavern plates until 7 pm on Mon-Fri. Bacon yam is outstanding!

Great place to stop before
Great place to stop before a Hawks game. There is free parking on the surrounding streets and it's a short walk to the Madhouse. My husband loved the deviled eggs!

Great Place to Hang
Went to the Park Tavern to watch the Bulls playoff game. Full of Bulls fans, Tv's and central sound on the bulls game = great atmosphere to enjoy good company for a Bulls game. Would imagine its the same for the Blackhawks. Excellent craft beer list, including sampler flights. Also had a nice wine list. The had their own signature drinks, I didn't try one this time, but will in the future as I love bourbon drinks and they had two that looked great. The food was awesome. Mexibano sandwich is a must try. Foot Long grilled cheez comes highly recommended by my party (had bacon and eggs on it, and some special sauce). Very nice ambiance and decor, nice place. Definitely will return.

Great place to meet and eat before a United Center event. Close if enough to walk
Plus free parking. Great menu and daily specials.

Good Blackhawks bar
It was an excellent place to watch the Hawks win game 7 against the Red Wings on Wednesday night. TVs were in good viewing spots and the atmosphere was excellent for playoff hockey.
Good beer selection and the food is excellent, I could order those pretzel sticks for every meal..
My only half-complaint is that the place closed at midnight and my friends and I did not want to stop celebrating the Hawks' victory that early, but I guess that's kind of our problem, not the bar's...

Found Park Tavern looking for a place for dinner before the Rolling Stones concert at UC. Very convenient as we could park at the UC and walk the 3 blocks. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Server was friendly and offered great recommendations. Fun atmosphere...will return again.

Great for Bulls/Hawks Games
Went before a Hawks game, and it was great. The shuttle made the whole night much easier.

Great location and a great manager
This sports bar is tailored to the United Center crowd - lively sports environment, clean, very good food, and dozens of beer taps. AND a free shuttle to and from the United Center event.
And a shout-out to the manager. An engaging, outgoing young man...we had a great conversation and he stopped by frequently to make sure that we were happy. We were.
And try the black bean soup. Worth the visit - all by itself.

Impressive, Knowledgeable Staff
My wife and I stopped in unexpectedly for dinner when we were in the building for other business. Our waitress was really knowledgeable on the massive beer selection, and helped us decide on a beer based on our tastes. She also arranged a nice beer flight for my wife. The sandwiches are really good, as well as the salads. The only thing I would change is the recipe for the black bean soup - it's got too much cumin in it. We do plan to return to try the pizza. Also a nice arrangement of daily specials for the week.

The restaurant did NOT have our Open Table reservation - however the manager was kind enough to find room for us on a very busy night.
