NFL Team Bars in NY for Displaced Fans

by Patrick Emmel

It’s hard to move to NYC from some faraway state and not have a place to cheer for your homeland’s football team–or worse, be jeered for your homeland football team.

Being a native New Yorker myself, I can’t tell you how that feels, but I can tell you where to go to find your jerseyed football brethren to revel in victory and find a shoulder to cry on during defeat. To help those displaced football fans that seem so alone in the big city, here’s a list of New York City bars for each and every NFL team in the country, where you can wear your jerseys proudly and discuss the honored past of your teams with other, like-minded fanatics. You’re welcome.

AFC East

Buffalo Bills

800 2nd Ave (at 42nd St.)

With giant, inflated football figures in the blue and red, McFadden’s has become the go-to bar for Bills fans in NYC. The only things missing is beef on weck on the menu and Jim Kelly serving drinks behind the bar.

Miami Dolphins

Third and Long

523 3rd Ave (at 35th St.)

Some bars go through genuine takeovers by fans that can’t find anywhere else to go. This seemed to be the case for this Fin-friendly bar, which became an official Miami Dolphin bar when a group of fans with a website decided to keep showing up every Sunday.

New England Patriots

The Hairy Monk

337 3rd Ave (at 25th St.)

While this Boston-friendly bar is more fanatical about their Red Sox, Boston’s diplomatic embassy in NYC is also a safe haven for Patriots games, provided the Patriots and Red Sox don’t have a game scheduled at the same time.

New York Jets

Seriously? This is New York. You’ll be hard-pressed not to find a bar in a block radius that doesn’t have Gang Green and Big Blue hanging outside their door.

Denver Broncos

Mustang Sally’s

324 7th Ave (at 28th St.)

Recently, this bar began to push its mustang motif by hosting Broncos games, complete with jersey giveaways and showing off their Colorado beer selection besides Coors Light.

Kansas City Chiefs

Village Pour House

64 3rd Ave. (at 11th St.)

While there is no legitimate Chiefs bar in NY, nor a legitimate Kansas City barbeque joint with television, the Village Pour House seems to be the go-to place for displaced football fans without a home to call their own.

Oakland Raiders

Peter Dillon’s Pubdillons NFL Team Bars in NY for Displaced Fans

130 East 40th St (between Park & Lexington Ave.)

This East Side Black Hole doesn’t have much. It’s a small bar that doesn’t serve food.In fact, it doesn’t even have a website. Luckily, you don’t need much to enjoy a Raiders game, just a good group of fanatical fans that can dress like the best of Oakland fans.

San Diego Chargers

Dewey’s

210 5th Ave (between 25th & 26th St.)

I’m not sure what Admiral Dewey has to do with San Diego or electricity. What I do know is that this bar is what Chargers fans mention when discussing where they would rather watch Norv Turner and Philip Rivers besides the safety of their couch.

Baltimore Ravens

Wharf Bar & Grill

587 3rd Ave (between 38th & 39th St.)

It’s no surprise that a bar based on wharf references would be focused on catering to fans of the Baltimore Ravens. What is surprisingly awesome is that this bar also knows what Old Bay spice is.

Cincinnati Bengals

Phebe’s Tavern & Grill

359-361 Bowery (at East 4th St.)

Who Dey? Well, they’re an old-time tavern where Bengals fans can gather for a little taste of Ohio.

Cleveland Browns

Manny’s On Second

1770 2nd Ave. (between 92nd & 93rd St.)

Dawgs need to gather somewhere, and this bar is the place for the infamous Browns Backers. At least, one of three places whose meetings are almost as secretive as Freemasons.

Pittsburgh Steelers

978 2nd Ave. (between 51st & 52nd St.)

With Iron City beer and pierogies, a Steelers fan has a safe haven to reminisce about their love of Pittsburgh and flaunt their terrible towels.

Houston Texans

Idle Hands

25 Avenue B (between 2nd & 3rd St.)

With a bourbon, scotch, and whisky selection unknown to a normal bar, this Alphabet City joint could very well turn even the most vague football fan into a Texans fan.

Indianapolis Colts

Keats Barkeats NFL Team Bars in NY for Displaced Fans

842 2nd Ave. (between 44th & 45th St.)

The Blue and White have taken over this Irish bar which, coincidentally, means that both the team and the pub rely on Luck.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Legends Bar NYC

6 West 33rd St. (between 5th & 6th Ave.)

While this Midtown pub is better known for its world football following (soccer for us American heathens), it decided to back the Jaguars, since no other establishment had taken that honor.

Tennessee Titans

Village Pour House

64 3rd Ave. (at 11th St.)

While there is no legitimate Titans bar in NY since the Oilers moved to Tennessee and Oilers fans became Texans fans, the Village Pour House seems to be the go-to place for displaced football fans without a home to call their own.

Dallas Cowboys

Stone Creek

140 East 27th St. (between 3rd & Lexington Ave.)

Every major city probably has a hideout for fans of America’s so-called team, and NY is no different as Stone Creek became the base of operations for Cowboys fans in NYC.

New York Giants

Seriously? This is New York. You’ll be hard-pressed not to find a bar in a block radius that doesn’t have Gang Green and Big Blue hanging outside their door.

Philadelphia Eagles

Wogies

39 Greenwich Ave. (at Charles St.)

In the depths of the Village dwells an outpost of Philly, complete with Yuengling and cheesesteaks and probably the only place to get Philadelphia Cream Cheese in NY during football season.

Washington Redskins

Dorrian’s Red Hand

1616 2nd Ave (at 84th St.)

Fans of the old and new Hogs have a place of refuge to eat, drink, and wear pig snouts in this restaurant/bar with the only food deserving to be eaten while watching football: comfort food.

Arizona Cardinals

Village Pour House

64 3rd Ave. (at 11th St.)

While there is no legitimate Cardinals bar in NY since Red Star closed, the Village Pour House seems to be the go-to place for displaced football fans without a home to call their own.

San Francisco 49ers

Finnerty’s

221 2nd Ave. (between 13th & 14th St.)

This East Village bar prides itself on its fanaticism of all sports from San Francisco, to the point of setting up bus trips to baseball games (because Mets games are just cheaper), so obviously there are a lot of red and gold for Sunday football.

Seattle Seahawks

Carlow Eastcarloweast NFL Team Bars in NY for Displaced Fans

1254 Lexington Ave. (between 84th & 85th St)

Yes, even a team from as far from NYC as possible has a safe haven for fans, as the 12th man expands across the nation at this Upper East Side bar.

St. Louis Rams

Village Pour House

64 3rd Ave. (at 11th St.)

While there is no legitimate Rams bar in NY, probably because the team roamed from Cleveland to Los Angeles and then to St. Louis, the Village Pour House seems to be the go-to place for displaced football fans without a home to call their own.

Chicago Bears

The Overlook

225 East 44th St. (between 2nd & 3rd Ave.)

Fans of Da Bears are some of the most dedicated, cold-resistant fans in the country, so the games that The Overlook shows on an outside projector on the roof probably aren’t reserved for September games only.

Detroit Lions

Mercury Bar East

493 3rd Ave. (between 33rd & 34th St.)

While it is unknown if this bar has Detroit Rock City blaring over Lions games, we do know that this bar is slowly becoming Little Michigan, or Little Michigan State for fear of the wrath of college rivalries.

Green Bay Packers

Kettle of Fishkettle NFL Team Bars in NY for Displaced Fans

59 Christopher St. (between 7th Ave. & Waverly Pl.)

Cheese? Check. Fish? Check. Green and Gold? Check. A multitude of Vince Lombardi hats? Probably. This bar is as close to Wisconsin as New York can get.

Minnesota Vikings

Bar None

98 3rd Ave. (between E. 12th & E. 13th St.)

Oddly enough, this East Village bar caters to both the fans of the old Purple People Eaters and the Saints. Cages may be necessary to separate rival fans.

Atlanta Falcons

Little Town NYC

118 East 15th St (at Irving Place)

This Union Square bar and restaurant was overrun by Falcons fans once, and has continued to be overrun since. They even have a Facebook meet-up page to coordinate their efforts.

Carolina Panthers

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ

1485 2nd Ave. (between 77th & 78th St.)

You really can’t have a Panthers meet-up anywhere but a barbeque joint, and Brother Jimmy’s continually appeases transplanted North Carolinians.

New Orleans Saints

Bar Nonebarnone NFL Team Bars in NY for Displaced Fans

98 3rd Ave. (between E. 12th & E. 13th St.)

Oddly enough, this East Village bar caters to both the Who Dat fans of the New Awleans Saints and their frosty Nordic rivals, the Vikings. Cages may be necessary to separate rival fans.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Village Pour House

64 3rd Ave. (at 11th St.)

While there is no legitimate Bucs bar in NY since Crowe’s Nest closed, the Village Pour House seems to be the go-to place for displaced football fans without a home to call their own.
