Where to Watch the 2016 Election Results in NYC

by Kerry Jepsen on Nov 7, 2016 in Roundups

The time has come — the votes are in, so now you can sit back and enjoy the show. It’s an American custom to bring in a new era with drink in hand, and we  here at Drink NYC don’t plan on breaking tradition. We’ve rounded up some of the best spots in NYC where you can raise a glass to the future president.

This old-school Americana emporium bar and restaurant is as fitting as any place to watch the elections results pour in from a large screen TV. For anyone who cast a vote this year, Harding’s will be offering cocktails, beer, and wine for a five dollar bargain, and complimentary snacks will be served for everyone. (32 E 21st St.; 212-600-2105)
 
For this very special election night, the rink outside Rockefeller Center will be transformed into “Democracy Plaza.” On this night of politics and banter, a special pre-fixe meal will be served for $39 and cocktail tailored to the ideology of every kind of voter. A map of the US will be screened onto the ice and will turn red or blue in real time as the election results reign in. (Rockefeller Center, 20 W 50th St.; 212-322-7620)
 
A local favorite haunt among the film-loving denizens of Williamsburg, Videology will be screening the election results in their cinematic screening room for the best possible view. Known for premier bar food and movie theater snackage, Videology also has scrumptious cocktails (just get that pisco sour). The next president of the United States wouldn’t want it any other way. (308 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn; 718-782-3468)
 
This funkadelic East Village disco lounge will be screening the election results on two large screen TVs. Drink specials will feature a sumptuous milk punch for $12, and be sure to enter the raffle where dinner and drinks for two will be the grand prize. (756 9th Ave.; 212-974-2003)
 
Cheeky as always, this notorious East Village sports bar isn’t shying away from political jeers during the election results screening. Along with screening the election on a large TV, the Village Pourhouse will be holding a raffle and serving up their infamous cocktail concoctions The Donald Drumpf and the Secret Server for only $8. (64 3rd Ave.; 212-979-2337)
 
This renowned Williamsburg theater and eatery will be screening the election in their legitimate movie theater. As usual, delicious food can and will be provided while you watch the ongoing election results - but during the election, bring in a trinket to indicate that you voted and get in on happy hour deals outside of what may be the happiest hour for the next President. (136 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn; 718-782-8370)
 
Union Square’s colorful and eccentric Mexican restaurant slash sports bar hasn’t once missed celebrating the ringing in of the next American President. The venue will be giving away free t-shirts to the first 200 customers, and they’ll be running a great domestic beer special (three dollar Budweisers and Pabst Blue Ribbon). (9 E 16th St.; 212-675-4700)
 
With two locations to choose from and both offering up great election themed cocktails, this Italian eatery is paying tribute to the democratic process in style. Sip on the Drump-tini, the Hill-a-rita- or the American Spirit as you wait for the election results. (200 W 44th St., 212-221-3800; 2450 Broadway, 212-362-2200)
