Where to watch the Olympics in NYC
The 2014 XXII Olympic Winter Games run from February 7th through the 23rd. Here are 5 spots where you can enjoy the Olympics in New York City.
Though the Sochi Olympics may not be the most LGBT-friendly, this Hell’s Kitchen sports bar totally is. The owners are focusing more on the sports than the politics, and you can sit back with some wings, nachos or sliders, and watch the games on their digital video wall or on one of the plasma screens that are scattered throughout the bar. The bar also encourages their viewers to use #CheersToSochi, a hashtag trending on social media in support of the athletes and LGBT rights. 742 9th Avenue
Both the West Village and Flatiron locations of this chic sports bar (yeah, a bit of an oxymoron, but it totally fits the bill) will be showing the Olympics. In honor of the 2014 games, The Windsor has concocted a special drink: The Lipinski White Russian, made with vodka, Kahlua, cream and topped with cocoa powder. Whenever the U.S wins a gold metal, the cocktail will be half-off! 420 Park Avenue South
From the opening ceremony to the closing ceremony, this bar and BBQ joint will show all the events on their big-screen TVs. Wear an American Flag anywhere on your body and get 10% off your total check! Various Locations
This TriBeCa hotspot is known for its cozy decor, arcade games and a pretty diverse crowd, especially when it comes to sports fans. Those who are more into the festivities surrounding the games and not closely scrutinizing every event can enjoy warming comfort food like Pork Belly Sliders or the Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup. 77 Warren Street
This Lower East Side Gaelic Bar may not be the most American, but it does offer a selection of 20 craft beers on tap for fans of any team to enjoy while watching the games on one of twelve large televisions. Watch skating, skiing, luging, and more while enjoying treats like the jalapeño burger, buffalo chicken sliders and Irish stew, 304 Bowery
