NYC SPORTS BARS
The national past time is back! Cue: burgers, dogs, beers, baseball civil war in NYC, and a daily celebration for the very heart and soul of American athletics. For those of us in NYC, it’s quite simple really: Yankees or Mets? Naturally, the majority tends to sway towards the more champion-laden (and historically rich) squad: the Yanks.
With the weather warm, the games plentiful, and the season underway, the ultimate question then becomes: Where we watching the game? As the Yanks are a national treasure of sorts—and NYC royalty to boot—there is no shortage of venues broadcasting their daily efforts. Some of the more adventurous spots even cater to the die-hards by incorporating festive “game time” drink specials into the mix. With a plethora of options threatening to overwhelm one in a tide of rapturous baseball ecstasy, a list of the top Yankee Bars has been comprised—enjoy!
Wednesday night a slew of press and a few sports fanatics headed into SNAP at W 14th St. and 8th Ave. for a preview of the newest sports bar to grace the Meatpacking/West Village/Chelsea intersection.
Danny A., Matthew Isaacs, Justin McManus, Jordan Harris and Jed Stiller, the brilliant minds behind Avenue, Marquee, The Upstairs, CV, and Peter McManus Cafe have struck gold again with this massive bar, welcoming patrons in with oak doors, football leather couches (complete with laces!), throwback wallpaper, brass inlay of classic tournament brackets on the floor, and SIXTEEN TVs!
