Brother Jimmy’s BBQ
In preparation for USA’s wins, head over to Brother Jimmy’s for their Gold Medal Special. For only $25, you are entitled to two hours of all-you-can-drink Bud/Bud Lights Drafts, Cuervo “Gold” Margaritas, “Gold” n Screwdriver and 1 appetizer. What a deal! 

The Eventi Hotel – Big Screen Plaza

Bigger is always better. If you want to see the action up close and personal, Big Screen Plaza is the place to be. In honor of Friday’s opening ceremonies, there will be a special bash for the whole family. You can expect free arcade games, food from Hester Street Fair vendors, a scavenger hunt, and even beer Olympics. Check out the promo video of the festivities here.



Fully committed to providing the ultimate experience, Smithfield will open each day at 10:30am or earlier to ensure that full Olympics coverage is provided. This three-floor tavern will keep everyone satisfied with its 21 LED HDTVs.


Queen Vic

Feeling blue that you’re stuck in NYC, over 3000 miles away from the heart of the action? If so, then look no further. Queen Vic is a British pub and restaurant in the East Village that’s décor will certainly get you in the London spirit. It also offers $3.75 liquor and $5 import tap beers. Drink up your majesty!



Boasting itself as ‘Brooklyn’s #1 Sports Bar,’ you will just have to head over to Mulholland’s see for yourselves. The events will be featured on its 12 HD plasma TVs, as well as a large indoor/outdoor flatscreen located in its backyard. Mulholland’s offers superior pub grub, as its wings are award winners. Polish them off with one (or more) of the 22 beers on tap.



Slainte’s 12 HDTV’s and a projector screen will definitely have you covered. On Saturdays and Sundays enjoy delicious brunch specials with a complimentary drink! This Bowery favorite will undoubtedly leave guests content.



Located in the bustling Meatpacking District, SNAP is a sports bar with more of a lounge atmosphere. Its pigskin leather seating provides a comfortable refuge to sit back, relax, and cheer on the USA. Order the ‘America’s Spirit,’ (Moonshine, Makers 46, Eagle Rare) to complement the event!



We can’t think of a more crowded, touristy, melting pot in NYC than Times Square to emulate the coming together of nations to battle for the Gold. Tonic contains 25 plasma TVs and a large projection screen, making the bar ‘a sports fan’s dream come true.’
