History of Gamekeepers

Gamekeepers was established in 1984 by some adventurous and enterprising sports enthusiasts. The first true sports bar in Lincoln Park and the model for all others. Some 21 years later, Gamekeepers is still around for your sporting and entertaining pleasure. Gamekeepers hosts a variety of NCAA and professional sporting leagues as well as an exciting late night atmosphere (open till 4 a.m. Sunday thru Friday, and til 5 a.m. on Saturdays). We have all DTV sporting packages available.

Gamekeepers is proud to be the official sports bar for LSU, Arkansas and UNC. We also host Georgia, Kentucky, Kansas, Pittsburgh, Maryland, U of I, Indiana, DePaul and Missourri alumni groups.

Gamekeepers has gone through a transformation over the last two years under our new management group. We’ve enhanced our three BIG screen projectors with HDTV DLP projectors that rival our new plasma TV’s. Remember “the old decor”…come check out the new and improved facilities. After an extensive remodeling…you will think you are at the Ritz with new bathrooms, floors, bar and woodwork.

Most of out clientel has been with us since the day they could go to bars…and if you have not been to Gamekeepers, come join us for a drink! We may not be your first stop, but we’re always there for your last call. All of us at Gamekeepers would like to thank you for your continued support and hope to see you soon!!!
