“small, comfortable place with about 7 or 8 t.v.'s - it's sensory overload at times as different games are on all the t.v.'s - great microbrews from around the country (never had a Rogue beer before but definitely will again in the near future) and free ”
“The people are cool, bartenders are awesome, and friendly regulars converse on beer and sports.”
“The brews were awesome - many I had never seen before and free pizza was being served over in the corner.”
“It is a place to catch a variety of different games and meet a nice mix of friendly bartenders and patrons.”
“This is the best place in New York to watch college sports!”
“If you are looking for a good beer, great service, and fun place to hang out and watch the game.”
“Dont go to Standings unless you like to hear the announcers on TV, hard to find microbrews at good prices (especially happy hour), the Mets, the Red Sox (though Yankee fans seem welcome), FREE PIZZA (Friday nights), FREE WINGS (Sunday & Monday Nights), or”
This small divey sports bar with an impeccable beer list is the gathering place for fans of a few sports teams including Syracuse and UNC's Tarheels. And with it being Gonzaga's year, expect Zag fans to take it over with fake moustaches.
FUN BASEBALL HANGOUT. Overwhelming number of t.v's for a small space...and it was perfect!! Was able to keep tabs on all key games...friendly staff that lets you bring in your own outside food and an interesting selection of local and national microbrews on tap...Question: When is "TRIBUTE TO THE MARLINS NIGHT"?
Fun loving sports bar. Sports, sports, sports....T.V.'s all over the palce so you never miss any action dominate the somewhat small space - very eclectic memorabilia and very warm and welcoming. Stopped by last Saturday afternoon and stumbled upon a University of Missouri Alumni basketball party for their game against K.U. The place was packed and most t.v.'s seemed tuned to that game - - so, if you go, call ahead to make sure they will be showing your game. The brews were awesome - many I had never seen before and free pizza was being served over in the corner. Definitely worth the stumble down the block from McSorley's...
I was looking for the bar I was reading about.... Well, I guess I came at the wrong time on the wrong night. It was a Monday, 6:00. The place was pretty much empty (which is more than fine), and there was a 20 something "kid" behind the bar. There are a lot of specialty taps at Standings, and he had no knowledge of any of them. He stood there expressionless, it was actually uncomfortable, so I just ordered the first tap that caught my eye. Whatever I ordered cost $6, so I guess happy hour prices are not really much of a discount. I was about to inquire about a "special" sign that said "free sausage & pepper heros tonight from 6-8" or something to that effect, but figured I'd better not. The tables and chairs were a mess, the lights were like a construction zone. There are plenty of TVs, and an interesting tap selection, and maybe under different circumstances it would be a cool place.
A top notch local.
I had been looking for a while for a low-key, friendly place to catch sports events and just hang out and Standings is that place! It reminded me a lot of an English pub - small, great beers, not over-crowded, friendly staff and clientele. It's the sort of place you can go to when you just want to get out of your apartment and meet a couple buddies for a beer and a football game.
It's also worth noting that they always appear to be having special promotions, like free pizza, which just sort of builds on the overall friendly feel of the place.
If only we had somewhere like this in the UK!. What a spot! Been here a few times now on trips to NYC. A relatively small selection of beers compared to some places in the East Village and Lower East Side. However, they are always interesting and always taste great. Had an amazing Mojo IPA there in March 06 and a stonking Endurance IPA in Oct 06. Last trip we walked in on a Uni of Missouri alumni bash. Cracking crowd. Even though it was rammed, the place felt relaxed and welcoming. They brought in some superb looking pizza from round the corner, but didn't get a chance to sample as we were off to dinner else where. Great place to catch all the US sports action. Only issue would be the barmaid on our last trip who wasn't the best and clearly was more interested in getting the free food down her neck even though she had just started her shift! A minor point. We'll be back and back again!
Awesome set-up with t.v.'s, small place brings you close to all the action with sound.... Really great place. Popped in for a college football Saturday and it seemed like every big game was on...it's a small place and is apparently well known for its eclectic beer selection. Had a pumpkin ale for the first time an was pleasantly surprised. Very friendly staff and crowd. No food served but they encourage you to order in...I got to order from Paul's Burgers around the corner...sweet...will definitely be back.
Great college football bar - especially for Cal fans! Go Bears!. I guess it depends what you're looking for but I went here last weekend and it was right on. Small, cozy, and great beer. They had about 6-7 TVs so almost every game was on somewhere in the place. They had free bagels from 12-5pm on Saturday. When we wanted warm food, we brought in Thai food from across the street or Pomme frites and drank great beer from 3:30pm until 11pm. The bartenders are nice folks too. Plus, a lot of Cal fans go to this bar. Go Bears!
cool spot to hang out. my friends recommended we meet here and they were right. this place has a great vibe going and is going to be a regular for me
Nice Palce. I found the athmosphere here to be really cool and the selection is right up my street. Beer Beer Beer all the way !.
Small Sports Bar. This is a very small sports bar with limited seating (doesn't look like it can hold more than 50). There are about 8 flat screens located throughout the bar. It can get very warm inside even when it's not crowded. It seems to draw more of a college type crowd as not only was the clientele in their early to mid 20's, but there are numerous stickers, dolls, street signs, etc from universities. Other than the heat, it's a good place to watch games. The beer menu is eclectic although of "name beers" only Bud Light and Guinness are available on draft. They do not serve food however there are numerous menus in case you want to order something from a local place. Bathrooms are 1 at a time.
