3rd Ave. btw 25th and 26th St.

It’s a sports bar explosion!  Let’s do the bar first.  Lot’s of space, lot’s of tables, and a big bar that you can almost go completely around until you get stuck in this tiny corner just when ou think your journey comes full circle…why they didn’t plan this better is beyond me.  I think that every inch of wall space above 7 feet has a TV on it, so I’m sure anything you want to watch is on, or can be.  Clientele is 20’s and 30’s, intermixed with douche bags, B&T’s, and sports-watchers.  Service is fine with average beers at average prices, taste fine.

Amsterdam Ave. and 80th St.

This might be where I cross the line into reviewing a spot that really is close to being a restaurant.  But the bar takes up most of the space, so forget that original thought.  Quiet spot on the Upper West Side where you can enjoy a quiet drink and some decent appetizers With a friend or two.  Anymore than that and you’re sitting at a table.  a few TV’s, friendly staff, above average beers at slightly above average prices, taste fine.
