Linebacker's is a classic Notre Dame bar. The drinks are cheap and it has a traditional, fun experience. This place is packed on game weekends!

My favorite bar - best time to be there is from 11 pm to 3 am. Best last 4 songs of the night. Had a blast coming back to my alma mater last weekend and the Backer is a big reason why. Love this bar.
