Football is back in a big way, and whether it’s college or professional, fans are hitting the streets in droves to watch their favorite teams battle it out on the gridiron. Enjoying this wondrous season is even better in New York City for so many reasons. In case you needed any more convincing that the Big Apple is the best place to enjoy watching football this season, we’ve compiled a list of the best perks that come along with watching football in a big city bar.
Fans of Every Kind
Football would be nothing without its fans. Being the second most densely populated city in the United States, you’re bound to find your niche among the countless fandoms that exist. While the New York Jets and New York Giants might make up the plurality of fans in the city, there are definitely fans of every team converging somewhere. Even the lonely east coast 49ers fan can find a safe haven somewhere in this city!
No Shortage of Spectators
New York City is huge and there are a lot of people living on this island. That can mean a lot of things, but it definitely means two: traffic is horrible and the bars are sure to be full on football Sundays. No more sitting at home watching the games by yourself and wishing you were at the stadium. Hit the bar scene in NYC and become immersed in the crowds as they cheer, boo, drink, and celebrate the return of the sport that they love.
Best Football Sunday Dishes
New York City is one of the food capitals of the world and that doesn’t stop for football. Enjoy some of the classic tailgate dishes or try adding some different flair to your typical football Sunday plates. Wings, hot dogs, french fries, and more all come to mind when you think of football, but save room for the steak, tacos, and maybe even some dessert when you hit the NYC bars.
Day Drinking in NYC
Games usually start around 1 o’clock, in some cases as early as 9 a.m.! With that being said, you usually don’t want to start drinking as soon as the game starts. Football weekends are the perfect chance to get a group of your friends and drink from the afternoon into the evening and keep it going throughout the night in the city that never sleeps. At Bounce, we offer a large list of craft beers, exclusive wines, and signature handcrafted cocktails to enhance your football experience. Just remember to eat, drink water, and drink responsibly.
Celebrate the Wins!
New York City is the adopted home to the teams playing across the Hudson, the New York Jets and the New York Giants. Even if they play in New Jersey, you can bet that the bars will be flooded with fans to celebrate a big New York win back in the city. Be surrounded by other local fans or just enjoy the electric atmosphere that America’s favorite sport provides. With any luck, we’ll have some playoff celebrations hitting the town come winter.
No Need for a DD
In New York City, nobody drives, there’s just too much traffic. Between the taxis, ubers, buses, trains, and even bike caddies, drinking and driving is a non-issue. Jump from bar to bar responsibly by taking advantage of the plethora of public transportation the great city provides. If it’s one of those famous crisp NYC fall days, walk through the famous city and explore what makes it so great. Later in the season as the weather gets colder, hop in a cab and make the city your oyster. Just remember to tip your driver – and your bartender!
