CHICAGO’S ORIGINAL IOWA HAWKEYE BAR AND GAME WATCH
Merkle’s Bar & Grill is the premier destination for your Iowa Hawkeyes Game Watch in Chicago. For 14 years, we’ve been providing customers with the ultimate experience. We feature a live video DJ to keep you entertained during commercials, with some of the finest youtube has to offer, as well as making sure the walls and rafters ring before the game, after every touchdown, and when Iowa wins. We absolutely mean it when we say that the people from Iowa have literally touched our hearts for decades with their kindness, spirit, and generosity. That’s why we choose the fly the flag every opening hour in this bar. That and the fact we’re from Iowa and proud member of the CHICAGO IOWA CLUB!
IN HEAVEN THERE IS NO BEER, THAT’S WHY WE DRINK IT HERE! Come on in the next time they play and grab a seat anywhere in the bar, I guarantee that the person next to you is just like you. GO HAWKS!
