209 W Milwaukee St, Janesville, WI 53548

Sun, Tue-Thur 11am-2am

Mon 3pm-2am

Fri & Sat 11am-2:30am


The building that now homes Riley’s Sports Bar was a tavern for the last few decades. That doesn’t mean the owners were content with it. The owners wanted natural light to shine into the bar, so they added eight windows in an attempt to cut down the overhead. They remodeled the walls, floors, and ceilings to update the new atmosphere that was going to take place in the space. The upstairs sat idle since the sixties, so they built stairs to create a second level for private parties and special events. The second story patio has ample outdoor seating provides bargoers with a one-of-a-kind view of downtown Janesville and Rock River. Riley’s sponsors dart, pool, volleyball, softball, kickball, golf, and all sorts of other sports teams! Make your way into Riley’s for an exclusive view or to see if they’ll sponsor your next sports team!
