If Standings were a little a rowdier, it would be the quintessential sports bar. This small, unassuming establishment is packed with sports memorabilia and refuses to play any music during games.
It’s a fake dive in the middle of the Financial District, so it’s not going to have the typical sports bar atmosphere, but you can’t beat the retro video games and individual TV screens in the booths. Bonus points: It’s owned by Sean Avery of the New York Rangers and you can see the original Andy Warhol portrait of Wayne Gretzky.
This place is specifically for European expats and soccer fans who want something that resembles a public house in London. Depending on the season, Banter will have MLS, Champions League, La Liga and Premier League matches playing, served with a large variety of European beers.
If you like outdoor bars, Mullholland’s has a great back patio for baseball games and summertime drinking. Even better is its menu of 22 beers on tap and array of bar food concoctions like waffle fry chili nachos and avocado BLTs.
The Irish Rover
The Irish Rover
Irish pubs are central to sports bar culture, and The Irish Rover is no exception. This Astoria bar is beloved for its community, regularly scheduling ski outings, trips to the dog track and even offering a free drink every third round.
