Best Football Bars in NYC.
Many bar goers are gladly trading the idyll of summer for the beginning of football season. New York City is a passionate sports town with rabid followers of both the Giants and the Jets, and everywhere you look there are food and drink specials just begging you to take advantage. Be part of the electric energy and save some money at the same time. Here are some local gems for game day.
Rattle n Hum (14 East 33rd Street) They offer 40 beers on tap and $.50 wings on Sundays. You can score $5 “kick the keg” craft beers all day Sunday as well. If you visit Monday through Friday from 11am-7pm, you’ll score $5 select drafts, wine and well drinks. The long bar is always tended by knowledgeable bartenders who know the beers.
Croxley Ales (28 Avenue B) Every Sunday you’ll find $.20 wings and $.10 boneless wings. Each week they also promote $5 “beer of the week” specials and have forty beers on tap. Monday through Friday from 4pm-7pm all drinks are $1 off and on Fridays from 5pm-7pm there is a free buffet at the bar. Score!
Dalton’s (611 Ninth Avenue) Dalton’s has twenty 50” TVs and $4 beers and $5 shots 365 days a year. For football they have $.25 wings, $16 pitchers and $12 for two foot-long hot dogs with a beer. Located near Port Authority this is a good choice to meet friends coming in on Sundays. I like the sliders with fries for $12.95.
Village Pourhouse (982 Amsterdam Avenue) The Pourhouse is a good choice for larger groups. They have several rooms and a large bar area. On Sundays take advantage of $5 mimosas and Bloody Marys, $10 pitchers and $20 margarita pitchers. The Drunken Chili ($6) is amazing. On Monday nights go for the $16 unlimited wings and Bud Lights for two hours. They always add food and drinks specials during sporting events.
