This is the type of place where bros run rampant, but with the option of private room booking complete with mixology lessons or guacamole making classes, we’d say dealing with the bros on the way to your private room is a small obstacle. The décor is unique, trendy and sexy, casting a sensual haze over the entire space. You have to remind yourself it’s a sports bar, but then a bro screams at the game on TV and you’re thrust back into reality.
This is a bro bar. There’s no way around it. We’re not going to lie to you. This bar was even voted as one of New York City’s “douchiest.” Yeah, so, there’s that. While there’s way too many frat boys who had football scholarships in college there, it’s still a sexy bar with some of the best cocktails money could buy and the option to book private or semi private rooms. You know, so you don’t have to participate in the douchiness.
Come for the drinks and stay for the food. Their burgers look like towers of meat and cheese descended from heaven. There’s also other bar favorites, but with an elevated twist, like six layer nachos, chicken BLT and loaded waffle fries.
We’ve taken a few jabs at Sidebar, but it’s because we don’t want you to be surprised that the sexy bar could have so many frat boy types in it at once. We’re full disclosure here. With that said, we’re not saying the frat boy type is a bad type of person to be. They’re just a specific type. This bar has a of them, but it also has amazing décor, way more than enough TVs to watch sports, delicious food and bespoke cocktails that will have you talking about flavor profiles with the bartender.
