Watch Baseball with Wings, Beer and Fellow Fans This Season in NYC

Watch Baseball with Wings, Beer and Fellow Fans This Season in NYC

Baseball season has begun. Whether you have the necessary cable package to tune into your favorite team’s games or not, it’s always better to watch with a drink in your hand and amongst fellow fans (as well as a nemesis or two, to shake it up a little). The following bars know what to give baseball fans (lots of TVs, some memorabilia, cheap wings and pitchers of beer). Check them out as you watch the Yankees (and the Mets!) win this year.
This bar is located just across the street from Yankee Stadium, and it opens with the team’s season. The inside is like a shrine to the Yankees. If you arrive early to a Yankees game, go here and get riled up with the other fans. (836 River Ave., Bronx; 718-993-5548)
With plenty of sports specials (that often involve $14 pitchers), Village Pourhouse offers an ideal place to watch the game, whatever that game may be. We haven’t personally counted, but they say they have over 20 flat screen, HD TVs. (64 3rd Ave.; 212-979-2337)
The décor in here gives this place away. It’s covered in memorabilia (autographed balls, actual jerseys and ample bobbleheads) and named after Arthur “Red” Foley, who used to write about baseball for the Daily News. The Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame is here, and, also very important, the bartenders take scotch very seriously. (18 W 33rd St.; 212-290-0800)
Catering to Phillies fans, Wogies offers amazing cheesesteaks from the Philadelphia natives who run the place. You can also get hoagies, soft pretzels and wings for reasonable prices (especially considering you’re in the West Village). (39 Greenwich Ave.; 212-229-2171)
Plasma TVs, a dedication to sports and a generous happy hour put this (also Irish) sports bar high on the list for watching games this baseball season. PRB 16 oz. tallboys are $4. (218 Avenue A; 646-370-1791)
Known for its wings, Blondies sports bar lets you eat as many as you can on Monday nights. Happy hour includes two drinks for the price of one every weekday between 4 and 7 PM, and you can usually find someone who shares a similar enthusiasm for baseball. (212 W 79th St.; 212-362-4360)
 
If you’re not aiming for divey, Bounce has an upscale feel and about 30 TVs to match. In other words, if you’re looking to nurse a cocktail instead of a beer as you watch the game, go here. Pitchers of sangria are $52, if that helps give you an image and an idea of the prices. (55 W 21st St.; 212-675-8007)
