Upscale Sports Bar.
Theory is a newer spot on Hubbard. This space used to be the home of Kevin restaurant, who now owns Shikago on Adams and LaSalle. Theory has great drink specials and a chic atmosphere. I would recommend it for happy hours! On Wednesdays they have $7 martinis. And of course when I saw this I assumed it excluded any premium liquors, but no...any of their martinis on the menu or even one made up by you (I had a grey goose martini) for only $7!!! Great deal!
Theory also has a private room perfect for 15-20 people. It is tucked away in the back of the bar and has 3 flat screen TVs, allowing you to view several games at a time!
This sleek, well-appointed sports lounge is right in line with Hubbard Street's upscale nightlife atmosphere..
A paneled, sculptural façade doesn't scream sports bar, but nothing inside really does either. Muted grey paint washes over everything that isn't dark wood or matte brown pleather. Remarkably, subdued decor seems at peace with more traditional sports bar elements--the TVs are neatly imbedded in wood paneling and any audio is hidden above a level of handsome blown-glass pendants. A young crowd in business attire appreciates the opportunity to enjoy familiar dishes like vinegary wings and bountiful sandwiches in a more stylish setting.
