The SnuggeryNear North
Joining siblings in Edison Park, McHenry, Schaumburg and Union Station, the Gold Coast outpost of The Snuggery takes the former spot of sports bar Finn McCool's. The late-night bar (open until 4 a.m. weeknights and 5 a.m. on Saturdays) features 14 60" TVs and owners plan to show Blackhawks and Bulls games, along with UFC events and those broadcast on NFL Sunday Ticket. Expect a food menu of bar favorites, including bargers, chicken, ribs and sharable apps like nachos.
A DJ will spin on weekends and Thursday nights, but if you're looking for an even more loungey scene, sneak upstairs to the adjacent nightspot The Apartment.
