Mr. D’s Sports Bar overlooks the beautiful Arlington Park, and what may surprise a lot of people is that this Sports Bar is open year round. While most think of Arlington Park as just a fun seasonal destination, what they may not realize is that Mr. D’s is a great place to meet up with friends for a drink, a bite to eat, and you can even wager in the off season. The bar is spacious with great views and a deck over looking the track. There are multiple large screen tv’s for viewing games and racing from around the country
We spoke with Matt Decancq the General Manager about Mr D’s Sports Bar.
Why open a year round bar/restaurant in Arlington Park?
To create another great place to watch sports and let people experience the one of kind feeling of a live horse race.
I notice you have a full menu, what’s your favorite?
Mr. D’s Specialty Burger!
What do you feel makes Mr. D’s unique?
The variety of things we offer. There is no other place you can go to watch your favorite sports teams, racing from all over the country and listen to some great live music. All with a state of the art racecourse and live Thoroughbred Racing as the backdrop.
Can you bet on the races in Mr. D’s?
Of course you can bet on the races while having a meal or a drink at Mr. D’s during racing season, but you can also bet on races from around the country in the off season. We are open every Friday afternoon through Sunday, long after the racing season here at Arlington Park is over.
Does Mr. D’s offer any additional services?
This is a great venue for hosting your next function or special occasion.
