With so many bars and restaurants gearing up for football season, I decided to give you a few more choices for great football viewing. Because the city is such a melting pot, most teams still enjoy hometown support in NYC. If your team is not from around here, these should be your go-to places.
Carlow East (1254 Lexington Ave.)
Seattle Seahawks fans need to arrive early to get a seat at Carlow. Cheap drinks, friendly bartenders and a BYO food policy keeps this place packed.
Butterfield 8 (5 E. 38th St.)
Located near Grand Central, Denver Broncos fans can enjoy $30 unlimited wings and drafts during all games.
Turtle Bay (987 Second Ave.)
Philadelphia Eagles fans should take advantage of $20 and $30 unlimited wings and beer packages at the upstairs bar for all games. Downstairs patrons enjoy $4 beers and half off combo platters.
The Irish Exit (978 Second Ave.) Get excited for the Pittsburgh Steelers Menu at The Irish Exit. A 100-ounce tower of beer and 20 wings are $30. All of the menu items have a Steelers twist and special pricing.
The Three Monkeys (236 W. 54thSt.)
This bar pleases Green Bay Packers fans (downstairs) as well as the New England Patriots crowd (upstairs). Wear your colors and get $3 beers and 15 percent off your food bill.
Stone Creek (140 E. 27thSt.) Dallas Cowboy fans love the $20 beer and wings specials during games. Monday through Friday from 4 p.m.-7 p.m. you’ll find $2 off drafts, wine and well drinks.
