Photograph: Max Herman The Globe Pub, a North Center British bar, is one of the best Chicago sports bars and a place to watch rugby.

Whether 11am or 11pm, it’s hard to find a seat at this North Center Brit pub. Call it European-style drinking, buffered by U.K. pub grub. During soccer and rugby matches, the crowd of regulars vacillates between raucous and downright scary, but fair-weather fans are welcome to join the zoo.

This bar is where everyone from the same soccer cult meet up and talk shit about the opposing team. Just kidding, but not really. My boyfriend took me here last weekend to watch the Mexico vs. Portugal game and it was a really good time. A news station was there recording a group chant aired live during commercial break, Adidas had a promotion table raffling cleats and jerseys, and everybody in the bar was a little too rowdy for it being 10 am. Overall, good energy and a good time, even if you're not that into sports.
