With fall comes the return of football and hockey season, not to mention, the baseball playoffs! Though it’s always fun to watch the game from the comfort of your own Octagon apartment, it’s also fun to visit a bar with your friends to watch the game with a beer and some pub grub. On game day, visit one of the sports bars below located near Roosevelt Island.
Twist & Smash’d – Twist & Smash’d is your classic, no-frills, local sports bar. Located on Steinway Street in Astoria, this neighborhood staple features 60 TVs and almost as many beers available to boot. If you’re feeling antsy during halftime of the game, spend some time playing bocce at the new courts located right inside the bar.
Sweet Spot – With ample lounge seating and drinks offered in fish bowls, Sweet Spot is the perfect place to watch a game with a group of friends. The 7,000 square-foot space features 43 TVs, in addition to 20 beers on tap, and $4 beers and $5 wines during happy hour.
Stax Sports Bar – New York residents near the Upper East Side flock to Stax on game day not just for the sports, but for their delicious bar food and drink specials. The bar offers daily happy hour, even on the weekend, featuring $5 drafts, frozen margaritas and wines. Food favorites include build-your-own burgers, mac and cheese, and their classic buffalo wings.
