NYC's Best Sports Bars

New York is one of the greatest cities in the world for sports...so great, in fact, that you don't even have to have go to the arena for a front-row seat. Just head on down to one of the city's many bars and watch your favorite teams on the many big-screen and high-def TVs. You can even catch sporting events taking place in foreign countries.

If your travels take you downtown, head over to Broome Street Bar in SoHo. With its mix of professionals and locals, Broome Street is a relaxing place to stop in for a moderately priced burger and a few beers. Open since 1972, Broome Street Bar is also notable for its cozy atmosphere, the lovely stained-glass portrait behind the bar, and a good beer selection. 363 West Broadway at Broome St., 212-925-2086

Located in Midtown East Manhattan, Traffic has quickly become one of New York City's hottest and hippest places, and the perfect place to catch any game or major sporting event, enjoy great food, and people-watch.

Featuring tons of flat-screen TVs, retractable windows that open up onto the street, and an eclectic menu that includes everything from cheeseburger rolls and bacon & crab mac & cheese to fried shrimp po-boys, burgers, and Gorgonzola filet mignon. Catering and parties are also available; email reservations@trafficbarnyc.com for more information. The Midtown East location is affiliated with the Miami Dolphins, Indiana Hoosiers, and Tennessee Volunteers. For more on Traffic's traffic's drink specials and more, click here.

While catching the game at Heartland Brewery, New York's first American-style brew pub, sample one of the many unique brewed beers, try a tasty martini, or have one of the appetizers, like the mini bison burgers. (Keep in mind: The Empire State Building location has multiple flat screens.) Union Square, 212-645-3400; 127 W. 43rd St., 646-366-0235; So. Street Seaport, 646-572-2332; Empire State Bldg., 212-563-3433; 1285 Sixth Ave., 212-582-8244; 625 Eighth Ave., 646-366-0235
