Looking for NYC bars for this coming Super Bowl
January 19, 2009 1:23 PM   Subscribe

My husband is very sweet and is taking me on a trip to New York City as a birthday gift. However, he just realized that he booked our trip over Super Bowl weekend. Where can we watch the game in Manhattan or Brooklyn with other Steelers fans?

Ideally, the bar would have a good audio/video setup and wouldn't be too crowded or rowdy. We would like to be able to hear each other and see the game.

Maybe we should just make this a meet-up.

Reservoir.

The reviews all mention the NYU crowd, which may be true on a Friday night, but come Sundays this is most definitely a Steelers bar.

Consider your hotel bar if you want to see the game and be able to talk to your husband. I doubt that rowdy would be part of that scene.

Genesis is a bar with a grown up crowd, and a loyal Steelers clientele. I know this because I am a Ravens fan, and this is my local bar :( I love it, except for Sundays.

You could call for a meetup of NYC Steeler-fan MeFites.

You know what you should do. You should look up some Penn State Alumni or U Pittsburgh alumni bars in NYC. I bet that would be TONS of fun...and not a huge crowd of fairweather fans.

A few years back, we watched the Steelers play at ESPN Zone in Times Square.

Ship of Fools was packed to the gills this past Sunday for the Steelers game...it was pretty much all Steelers fans in full team colors
