Best Sports Bars in Manhattan

Afternoon everyone. Hope all had a good halloween!! I am looking for a the best sports bars in NYC....good food...nice TV's...and most important....Great beer selection. We typically go to a place like Houston's on Park Ave S and just sit at the bar (def not a sports bar but they have good food and beer on tap). Love dba but not really good TV's. We will go anywhere in the city. Basically looking to do a college football wkend before moving to London. Thanks for the help!!!

  1. Check out Blue Seats on Ludlow. It's not your father's sports bar -- more trendy than fratty -- but it has a staggering number of flat screen TV's and (I believe) several beers on tap.

      Blue Seatsis in an unmitigated disaster....Eater has had running coverage, you can start here...

    2. do not goto blue seats--that place sucks. i have no clue how its still in business. u r better off going to one of the brother jimmys or a blondies

        1. Mercury Bar in Murray Hill, has the best TV setup of the sports bars in my opinion, I also enjoy Backpage. Landsdowne has a decent TV setup and really good food and beer selection

          1. Mercury is ok but can get really loud and the food is average. Blind pig on 14th between 1&2 is less rowdy, has better food and a solid beer selection. Oh and plenty of good TVs.
