Chicago is a dream town for sports fans, and the South Loop apartments at NEMA Chicago are the perfect home base for catching the action. Whether you’re a Chicago Cubs fan, a White Sox fan, or just a lover of the game, summer is the time to enjoy the baseball season — either from a seat in the stands or at NEMA’s dedicated sports bar, The Station.
On the recent four-game showdown between the Cubs and the New York Mets, the Chicago Tribune writes, “While the bullpen has been dominant, manager David Ross is mindful that it’s a 162-game season. Overworking the relievers in June could have repercussions three months from now. So right-hander Kyle Hendricks’ six shutout innings Thursday against the New York Mets were doubly valuable in the Cubs’ 2-0 win at Citi Field.” Will the strategy pay off? Fans will be able to see for themselves how it all shakes out on the Cubs’ home turf at Wrigley Field this summer. Check out the Cubs’ schedule here, and plan out a whole summer of live baseball.
And for a deep dive into Wrigley Field’s architecture and history, you can take a tour of the stadium, which first opened in 1914, and experience what it’s like to look up into the stands from the field. You’ll also get to check out the press box, the dugouts, and the bleachers, and learn a bit about the history of baseball in Chicago, as well as the history of baseball itself.
If you are a White Sox fan, head over to Guaranteed Rate Field to get your hit of MLB excitement. Upcoming games include a series with the Houston Astros from July 16-18, and another with the Minnesota Twins, from July 19-21. See the rest of the regular season schedule here.
While NEMA brings you close to everything Chicago has to offer, including access to the best of our national pastime, it also provides the perfect oasis for cheering on your favorite teams. The Station, NEMA’s in-house sports bar, is complete with a 16-screen video wall, vintage-inspired arcade games, and, of course, the perfect brews on tap. Sit back and relax with neighbors and friends in a sports bar atmosphere that feels like a party in your own living room — except you don’t have to worry about excited fans knocking anything over during a home run. And that’s not all: The Station opens onto the Park Terrace, an outdoor space where you can see the sweep of the city that you, and some of the best baseball players in the nation, call home.
