foo fighters on stage ai image

Three different bars at an iconic Wrigleyville spot means three different bathrooms.

As I’ve mentioned before, I host bar trivia in the Chicagoland area, which means that I encounter a lot of Chicago bathrooms. Recently, my work with Whaddayaknow? Trivia led to me standing on stage in front of 170 teams (with some technical difficulties) over the course of a long Saturday tournament with thousands of dollars in prizes at stake.

After all, an 800 person capacity venue requires poopable places!

Now, this was the first year we held the event at The Cubby Bear, a Chicago institution that has been a staple of the area since 1953. In fact, I once got to see The Foo Fighters play there (for just $20!) because Dave Grohl saw his first ever punk concert there back in the day.

Yes, this bar is for Cubs fans, north-siders and trivia fans…but how are the bathrooms?

You can forgive the slippery-while-wet sign. This happened when all three floors of this bar were jampacked with people drinking for over five hours. Thankfully there were enough urinals and stalls, as well as ample sink-space, to accommodate a packed house.

After all, if you can manage hosting both a Foo Fighters concert and a giant trivia tournament, you know enough to have enough bathroom space to avoid emergencies.

I wasn’t able to get photos of the third bathroom, but the second floor bathroom proves that their bathrooms are both clean (enough…), efficient and relatively uniform.

The second-floor bathroom was smaller, and also a little more worse-for-wear, but also didn’t have as many people needing to use it. Outside of a little graffiti (and a seemingly unnecessary stool likely used for the dreaded “toilet guy“) it was odor-free and not overly-used.

Is the Cubby Bear poopable?

The typical crowd at the Cubby Bear might be a little bit more rowdy (read-as: puke-y) than your average bar, but that’s to be expected for Wrigleyville. The Cubby Bear has been in the game long enough to expect a particular type of clientele and recognizes the importance of a clean bathroom.

So yes, we’d say that The Cubby Bear is indeed poopable! Dump away! It is likely, people will be too drunk to remember the waste your about to lay!

Thankfully he has not had nearly as many bathroom breaks. Jeff prefers his bathroom clean and tranquil, which is ironic considering the amount of time he spends in dive bars.
