It’s that time of year again: SuperBowl! Personally, I’m not into sports but I do love a good bout of camaraderie over a round of drinks. If you’re in NYC and looking for a place to gorge on football snacks while watching the big game, have no fear; here are the top spots that have you covered.
For the super hip sports fan… Nitehawk Lounge
CREDIT: Ty Cole
Nitehawk Lounge adjoins Nitehawk Cinema, where guests can watch the silver screen while wining and dining on seasonal themed drinks and gourmet bites. On Superbowl Sunday, this Williamsburg staple will be projecting the game in the lounge. I happened to once be there during the World Cup. Warning: the staff can get very intense. But that’s why we love them. Drink barrel-aged cocktails and roar at the projector. Hipsters and jocks, unite.
Address: 136 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11249
For the craft beer…guzzler… ABC Beer Company
Nothing says football like beer, right? Forgot watered down pints and geek out with a selection of craft beers, many of which are located in good ol’ NYC. Feast on charcuterie, route for your team and your brewery, and probably take a six-pack or two home.
Address: 96 Avenue C, New York, NY 10009
Neighborhood: Alphabet City
For the uptown kids… Bronx Ale House
Drink incredibly reasonably priced brews while watching the game on the big screen. Bronx Ale House serves a lovely array of “bombers” (sliders) including pulled pork, meatball, and jerk chicken.
Address: 216 West 238th Street, Bronx, NY 10463
For the person who likes free wine and maybe wants to watch the game too… Ten Degrees Wine Bar
Prefer to down Chardonnay while cheering? No problem! Ten Degrees always serves two drinks for the price of one until 8 pm. ‘Nuff said. Watch the game at the bar while swigging Malbec. Look at how sophisticated you are.
Address: 121 saint marks place, New York, NY
Neighborhood: East Village
For the actual sports fan…Amity Hall
Two 20 inch projectors, 15 HD televisions, and $50 for a three hour open bar. This is the classic Superbowl ‘get tanked’ in style venue. Sumptuous sandwiches and truffle mac n’ cheese make dressier but still classic snack options. If you actually want to, you know, what the game, this is probably the place to be.
Address: 80 West 3rd Street, New York, NY 10012
Neighborhood: Greenwich Village
