About Us

Newport is a Sports Bar boasting handcrafted burgers and craft beer. A great spot that really caters to the people who live in this special neighborhood.

We show all the big games on 18 flat screen TVs. We have all sports packages including: NHL Center Ice, NFL Sunday Ticket, NBA Full Court, MLB Extra Innings

We offer steel tip darts, Golden Tee Golf, a Jukebox, free wi-fi and a beautiful seasonal outdoor patio.

Just a 1/2 block from the Southport Brown Line stop, we’re easy to get to…and once you’re here, you won’t want to leave.


Established in 1985

Newport Bar & Grill has been a Southport Corridor treasure for decades.

Formerly known as the “LaunderBar”, Newport used to be attached to a laundromat that was in the adjacent building. Patrons could do their laundry and pop over for a bite to eat and a few cocktails. The laundromat has since been revamped into a trendy salon, so the “soap” has given way to progress, but the “suds” are still flowing freely here. Newport is a great spot that really caters to the people who live in this very special neighborhood, and we hope to continue doing so for years to come.
