Backstory Tavern, founded in 1934, stands as one of Chicago's original watering holes. It's among the few remaining "slashies" – a classic combo of liquor store and bar – where patrons can enjoy a drink and then grab a six-pack to go. Step into this beautifully renovated bar, where "package goods" await in a cooler behind the bar, a favorite spot for Bucktown / Wicker Park residents, regulars, and basketball-loving alumni.

Great people and great vibes. If you're looking to get out and meet some people while having fun then Players Sports is for you. There are leagues and tournaments for a bunch of different sports. They run them for all skill levels and you get cool shirts if you win. Also a lot of free promos - they give out a lot of drinks and other stuff. Overall, very fun and very friendly environment.



Lucas M.   

For the last three years, I have been playing indoor and beach volleyball with Players Sport & Social. They are always exceptional and professional. My favorite part of the leagues is the cadence and the different formats that they offer; whether you want to play Rec vs Competitive or 2s vs 6s - they have it all! They also have referees for all of their indoor leagues, and they are prompt to email requests.



Luis A.   

Love attending the Luau tournaments they host! Such a fun environment they set up!



Ashley W.   

Players Sports Volleyball tournaments are great! Always well-organized, and fun to meet and hang out with friends.



Aaron R.   

I've been competing in their leagues and tournaments for years. Always well run and a good time.
