Houndstooth Saloon brings a touch of Southern hospitality to a sports bar-heavy stretch of Clark Street in Wrigleyville. Alied with the University of Alabama, the bar's name refers to Bear Bryant, the Alabama football coach known for his houndstooth hats. After several years at its original location, Houndstooth has upgraded to a bigger space one block south. The bar's front room models the original location, with a long bar, and DJ booth in the back. Pass through a secondary seating area with houndstooth-patterned wallpaper to get to a party room equipped with three oversized booths, each equipped with a trio of TVs and beer taps built right into the tables. For sports-watching sustenance, the chicken fingers, sliders and pulled pork sandwiches continue to be favorites.
