Chiefs, 49ers fans each set to flock to specific Chicago bars for Super Bowl



The Bears’ last Super Bowl appearance was 16 years ago, and their only win dates back 38 years. Despite the Bears not being in contention, Chicago is still home to passionate Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers fans. Two bars, Toons Bar & Grill near Wrigley Field, a hub for Chiefs enthusiasts, and Cheesie’s Pub & Grub on Belmont Ave, a known spot for 49ers supporters, are gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday.

Toons Bar & Grill, in business since 1989, serves as a gathering place for Chiefs fans, including Kansas City native Joe Belek, who describes it as a “home away from home.” The bar, anticipating a packed house, opens its doors at 11 a.m. on Sunday, with plans for an all-day celebration. Owner Danny Beck attributes the growth of the Chiefs fan base at Toons to his own love for the team, and they are preparing 700 pounds of chicken wings for the weekend.

Cheesie’s Pub & Grub, operating since 2011, is the go-to spot for 49ers fans. Manager William Welch King mentions that their orders double during game weeks, and the bar has been known as a 49ers haven for almost a decade. The owner, Chris Johnston, initially connected with regulars who were fervent 49er fans, solidifying Cheesie’s reputation as a dedicated 49ers bar. While it was quiet on a Friday, King promises decorations, specials, and raffles to create an extra-special atmosphere for long-time patrons eager to see their team win the Super Bowl.
