Whether you’re looking to make the rounds at all of the best Naperville bars, need somewhere to cap off your date night, or are setting your sights on a Naperville sports bar for the big game, we have you covered. Just always remember to bring yourself a designated driver or arrange for a cab or rideshare for the trip home.

Great Watering Holes

Quigley’s is a great place to wind down after shopping downtown Naperville, with both typical pub fare and more traditional Irish meals and appetizers. During the warmer months, Quigley’s features Naperville’s first dog-friendly patio, making it a great stop on the way home from taking Fido out.

The Jackson Avenue Pub is a young Naperville bar, but it’s already gotten neighborhood attention with a Best of Naperville 2014 win and the right combination of delicious food and great service. An incredible craft beer selection and a menu that evolves as the pub grows help to give this hole in the wall a spot in our hearts.

Naperville Sports Bars

Bottoms Up is called “the friendly sports bar” for a reason, welcoming you whether you’re a Cubs fan, a Sox fan, or even a Cardinal’s fan. 28 HD screens, 50 beer options, and a series of 100% Angus beef burgers make this a favorite.

Tap In Pub & Carvery is unique. It’s not just a sports bar, it puts you up at the tee at some of the world’s greatest golf courses thanks to the HD Golf Simulators. Tee off with multiple varieties of wings, a long list of sandwiches (including a trio of dipped subs worth the visit alone), and plenty of burgers.

The Best of the Best

If you’ve gone out just once or twice in Naperville, you probably already know about Empire. It’s such a destination that we gave it its own space, as it’s both one of the best Naperville bars and one of the best Naperville sports bars. Glue your eyes to the game or huddle in for conversation and some sliders with your friends, everyone is welcome at Empire -- and when the rooftop is open, they’ve got room for you all, too.
