ABC + Cleo's + you all made a rousing success of 2018's best new bocce venue. Holy S#IT is this venue fun. The city’s #1 soccer bar is definitely making a play to be the top bocce bar, too. This Ukrainian Village staple and it’s famed patio have expanded and built out two glorious bocce courts. The sand and crushed gravel mix is tightly packed for an authentic bocce feel.
This is a new(ish) venue, but it’s already made a name for itself. We're giving it two nights to beam it's beer and bocce bright lights into our Chicago Summer nights. We'll be bringing the same ABC spirit as ever: Highly social, moderately competitive, drink-in-hand approach to the timeless game of bocce ball. There’s no skill necessary to get started, just an appetite for mid-week fun. With two leagues at the same venue, I'm imagining a lot of chances for crossover competition and big time bragging rights. Get in it and win it.
