Brothers Bar & Grill

Eddy Street Commons is located right across the street from Notre Dame and buzzes on gameday weekends. Brothers Bar & Grill has several televisions for watching the game, a large patio, a long tap list and delicious food.

CJ's Pub 

Location: 236 S. Michigan St. | South Bend 

CJ's Pub has been a longtime go-to spot in downtown South Bend for Notre Dame fans. It serves up some of the best burgers in town.

Corby's Irish Pub 

Location: 441 E. LaSalle Ave. | South Bend

Corby's Irish Pub is a popular spot for Notre Dame fans, students and alums. There is plenty of Fighting Irish memorabilia on the walls (to go with the TVs) and the pub is known for being the location of bar scenes during the movie "Rudy." 

Linebacker Lounge 

Location: 1631 South Bend Ave. | South Bend

Quintessential college bar located near campus. Known affectionately as "The Backer," it's always a hotspot for fans before, during and after the game.

O'Rourke's Public House 

Location: 1044 E. Angela Blvd. | South Bend

Another option in Eddy Street Commons just up the road from Brothers. O'Rourke's has the Irish pub vibe (along with a wide selection of Irish whiskey) with the benefit of being located on a busy corner right across from campus. 

Taphouse on the Edge 

Location: 1803 South Bend Ave. | South Bend

The name is a nod to it being on the "edge" of campus. Taphouse is a sports bar locals love for its big menu (and great burgers) and tap list full of local and regional beers. 

Extra Point: Bar Louie 

Location: 7320 Aspect Dr. | Granger

Bar Louie is a little more chic than the average sports bar but remains a popular spot for gameday revelers a little ways from campus. Flatbread and burgers are dependable choices on the menu. There's also a large rooftop deck.
