Oliver’s Astoria

I’m a (soon to be heartbroken) 49ers fan, so this San Francisco faithful bar is at the top of my list. Team allegiance aside, they have some pretty awesome deals, as well as 8 televisions, a projector screen, and a private party room with its own tv: perfect for a group of fans. They have the DirecTV NFL Ticket package and are happy to reserve a specific area for groups that call ahead requesting a specific game.

Monday nights: 2 for 1 Blue Point Drafts

Thursday nights: $5 Craft Beer Cans

Sundays: $4 Speakeasy Drafts

Rocky McBride’s


Three words: Shrimp. Bloody. Marys. Football Sundays at Rocky McBride’s feature $7 Bloodys with shrimp (something I never knew I needed until I read about it!) and $5 mimosas, which sounds like a pretty awesome way to kick off your Funday. They have 22 televisions, including four personal tvs at tables. During the warmer months, they’ll feature beer pong and can jam outside for those looking for a commercial break and halftime activity!

Studio Square

Studio Square Outside

One thing’s for sure: Studio Square knows how to throw a party. Last year, they were voted “NYC’s Ultimate Sports Bar” by ESPN, and they’re proving that reputation with a truly awesome viewing experience. They will be showing every single game on their 30+ televisions, and will be broadcasting the local games on massive 10 ft. x 16 ft. HD LED video walls in the garden area. If you visited Studio Square during the World Cup, you know how cool this is!

Monday nights, Thursday nights, and Sundays:  2 for $30 pitchers, with rotating beer and shot specials every week.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Dillingers? WINGS! They have some of the best wings in the neighborhood, which is pretty much the official snack of the NFL. It’s a little bit of a walk from the train, but once you’re there, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the game. (with wings!)

Monday nights: $4 appetizers, pints and shots

Thursday nights: $5 9oz burgers with 1 topping and fries

Sundays: Unlimited Brunch in the dining area from 11:30-2:30 for $21.95 and $5 16 oz Rum Punch all day

If I could only go to one bar in Astoria... this would be it.

We’ve already professed our love for Astoria Tavern, but it gets even better during football season. The laid-back, never-too-crowded vibe makes it the perfect spot to grab a pint and watch your team. They have 15 televisions, so all games will be shown, while hometown teams are shown on the 80-inch tv.

Sundays only: Free sub platter from Kris, Sal and Charlie’s.  Also, rotating bucket specials.

Irish Rover

The Irish Rover is affiliated with the Astoria Tavern, and they share the same comfortable, unpretentious vibe. They ALSO have 15 televisions, with the home teams being played on the large, 80-inch projector. The only difference is they will not feature a free sub platter, but will have outdoor BBQs, weather permitting.

Sundays only: Rotating bucket specials.
