If you’re looking for a biker friendly place to meet your friends for a cold beverage, I suggest the Bullpen Sports Bar in Shorewood, IL.
Friends of mine turned me on to the Bullpen Sports Bar not too long ago and we’ve been there several times now. We even have a member that is using the Bullpen as a destination for a poker run.
Jerry the owner has been a member of Ursula’s Local Riding Buddies since earlier this year but back then I didn’t realize he owned the Bullpen. A motorcycle rider himself, he welcomes bikers and has motorcycle only parking in the lot. The Bullpen has pool tables, darts, and a back patio with TV. Oh – and cold beverages 🙂 There’s a pizza joint attached and you’re welcome to bring your food into the Bullpen to relax with a slice of pie and a beer.
After a bike night in August a slew of us went to the Bullpen and hung out with Jerry. Being that he’s a bar owner, he doesn’t get a lot of free time to ride with us. When he does, it’s usually during the day and many of us are working. We recently ended up at the Bullpen following the Wounded Warriors Motorcycle Run sponsored by the Illinois Veterans Foundation, after a long day in the rain. What a relief to sit with friends and dry out in a friendly place. Jerry didn’t even mind the puddles of water under the bar stools.
One of the great benefits to the Bullpen is “location”. Just 1.5 blocks south on Rt. 59 from Jefferson/RT. 52. Not even a full mile off I-55 regardless if you exit from Jefferson going south or Rt. 59 going North. Awesome place to start or end when doing a trip Southwest in Illinois.
I’m looking very forward to hanging out more with Jerry at the Bullpen . They always have a drink special and they always have fun. Even in the ladies’ room there are fun times.
