Have you ever compared bucket lists with someone else? If you haven’t, you really should. It’s neat to see what others want to do in this life, plus you’ll get great ideas to add to your bucket list as well.

If you haven’t had a chance to compare bucket lists with others, we’ve got you covered in terms of sports bucket lists. We’ve been exploring here on our blog space must-see sporting events that really should be on your bucket list. We’ve done the vetting for you; now all you have to do is go!

Bounce Sporting Club is a sports bar and corporate event venue in Chicago. Our mission is to be your go-to upscale sports bar for when you need to relax, watch the big game, or just decompress after a long day at work. When you have a place where you feel comfortable going, where you know you’ll get great food, drinks, and service, and where you know the ambiance is just what you’re looking for, then you’ve struck gold. Below, we’ll take a look at two more must-see sporting events to add to your bucket list: the Stanley Cup Finals and The Kentucky Derby. Stop by today, or call us for event booking information!


The Stanley Cup Finals

Hockey players are a breed apart, and sometimes they make no sense. If you think about it, who signs up to be banged into boards at high speeds, to be hit by hockey sticks, to be subject to punches at will, and to have 100 mph little rubber disk be hurled towards them? Hockey is a sport where injuries are rampant, and losing a tooth is almost a given if you play it long enough.

Yet, it is this very drive and determination to win that draws fans by the millions to hockey games every year, and that makes the Stanley Cup Finals one of the must-sees on your bucket list. The Stanley Cup is the culmination of the hockey season, and with only one team winning, everyone wants it.

Attending the Stanley Cup Finals truly is a special occasion to remember. You’ll experience the thrill of the punches, the penalties, the skating, and the scoring, as well as hockey fans, who are just as rambunctious and rowdy as the players they idolize. Attending the Stanley Cup Final for the pure reason of soaking up the ambiance is reason enough, but you throw in the non-stop action, which moves very quickly, and you’re in for a treat.

Bounce Sporting Club in Chicago understands if this year you just can’t make the Stanley Cup Finals, which is why we’ve got all of your needs covered. We offer a huge number of flat screen TVs so you don’t miss a second of the action (which, in hockey, you can miss if you blink). Our full menu options will keep you warm and satisfied, while our drink specials and cocktails will take the edge off if your team is losing. Furthermore, our corporate event venue in Chicago offers something for everyone. In particular, hockey is a sport that somehow is better the more people you have. When you book our 300-person capacity Field House, you’ll be greeted with high-top cocktail tables and comfortable booths. With a DJ booth and a state of the art sound system, you can party well past the game has ended. Contact us today for booking information!

The Kentucky Derby

There is nothing quite so magnificent as seeing a horse run. However, when you are talking about three-year old thoroughbred colts and fillies who are at their prime in terms of conditioning and strength charge down a course at almost a full-out sprint for two minutes, your heart won’t stop pumping until way after the race has ended.

Of course, we are talking about The Kentucky Derby, called the fastest and the most thrilling two minutes in sports. And while it might be silly to travel to Kentucky for a two-minute race, we promise you you’ll never forget it. This horse race has been run every year since 1875, and is the crown jewel of the Triple Crown, which is a series of three horse races that are run two weeks apart that can be grueling on the horses.

The Kentucky Derby, however, is the race to attend if you had to pick one. There are a full two weeks of festivities before The Kentucky Derby that includes concerts, hot air balloons, marathons, and more. Women wear outlandish hats on Derby day, and you’ll have a chance to rub elbows with the rich and the famous, since horse racing itself takes quite a bit of money to enter. Seeing The Kentucky Derby is actually quite accessible to many since there is standing only for an affordable price.

If you can’t quite make it to The Kentucky Derby this year, Bounce Sporting Club has got you covered. We are a sports bar and a corporate event venue that specializes in helping people not only enjoy sports, but relax and socialize while doing so. With great music, food, and drink, you can’t help but be swept up in the thrill of the game, or, in this case, the horse race. If you want a more exclusive feel, we offer our Clubhouse event venue space that offers a private entrance for you and 150 of your closest friends. You can take in the scene and not miss one second of those 120 seconds the thoroughbreds are running. We bring the Derby to you; call today for booking information.


It’s nice to have a go-to place where you and your work colleagues can celebrate successes and team build. Bounce Sporting Club in Chicago offers just such a convenient space for everyone to come together, get to know one another better, and bond more as a team and as a company. Our corporate event venue spaces are designed with you in mind, having various sized rooms to accommodate your company. We have smaller corporate event spaces that can be for just a certain group of your company or for management parties, or we have larger venue spaces for more people to join in the fun.

With our corporate event venue spaces, you’ll not only have access to our large flat screen TVs, but we also have a full menu with regular drink specials as well. We ensure your every need is met through our stellar customer service staff as well. Whether you are celebrating The Stanley Cup, The Kentucky Derby, or each other, give us a call today for booking information!
