Durkin’s Tavern had a great turnout for the viewing of UFC 153! Even though Anderson Silva knocked out Stephan Bonnar 4:40 into the opening round everyone at Durkin’s had a blast! Because of Durkin’s unique layout (with three separate bars!) we are the premier place in Chicago to view all major UFC events. We play the fight sound in the back two bars and have our normal lively Saturday night atmosphere up front with a live DJ playing music. Of course, we play sound for the main event throughout all three bars. Durkin’s next UFC event will be UFC 154. The main event is sure to be a good one as Georges St-Pierre takes on Carlos Condit. It's St-Pierre's first time in the Octagon in nearly 19 months! There will be NO COVER, however, there will be an optional $25 meal package from 9pm-midnight. See you there, fight fans!

It was another fun weekend at Durkin's, Chicago's home of the Illini and Steelers! The Steelers came away with a huge win against their cross-state rival Philadelphia Eagles Sunday afternoon and the Illini fans got to enjoy the sounds of our live marching band on Saturday before their game. Don't forget to keep looking out for our great upcoming events. Everything from tailgates for the Illini to our bus trip to Fear City as well our Crawl with the Creeps pub crawl. It is definitely going to be a lot of fun in the coming weeks at Durkin's. See you there!
