Johnny's Ice House East information
Johnny's is an ice rink, which explains why you can practically see your breath in the attached bar. The wood-paneled, neon-lit room is prime for watching Blackhawks games and knocking back Labatt's (Johnny's is supposedly the state's biggest seller of the beer). Hours can be erratic.
At Johnny's other ice house, further west at 2550 W Madison St, you can see the Blackhawks in person: they practice at the facility and it's open for free public viewing. Check the Hawks' website for the schedule.
