Party Earth 200 Fifth Review

The Scene

A relaxed restaurant and rowdy sports bar all in one, 200 Fifth is a versatile venue that attracts a diverse and loyal clientele of young professionals, older regulars, and sports fans.

A relaxed restaurant and rowdy sports bar all in one, 200 Fifth is a versatile venue that attracts a diverse and loyal clientele of young professionals, older regulars, and sports fans.

On one side, small candlelit tables and ambient tunes create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the restaurant, usually full of dating couples and business types lingering over cocktails and seafood.

Patrons looking for a livelier scene need only follow the wraparound bar into the next room, where they’ll find a sprawling sports bar packed with rowdy crowds of wing-eating college guys and fun-loving athletic girls, all busy downing pitchers of one of the forty beers on tap.

Lines of flat-screen TVs running along each wall and a massive projection screen in the back should be enough to satisfy any sports lover, though fanatics who can’t miss a single play will want to snag one of the boxy grey booths, each fitted out with two additional screens.

A single pool table provides entertainment during commercials, but on big game nights, most patrons tend to stay glued to their seats.

Although a combination of laid-back restaurant and thriving sports bar may seem odd, both sets of patrons play nice together and even overlap now and then to create an unusual hotspot that works perfectly for both carefree dinners and raucous nights on the town.

Great View, Chill Rooftop - But Crowded!
Camille R. Mar 28, 2013
This place has a great rooftop scene, if you are looking to grab a few drinks with your buddies while enjoying a great view than this is it! Unless you are claustrophobic, than maybe think elsewhere... But if you enjoy mixing and mingling, meeting new people, and feeling like you are on top of New York City than this is definitely for you! They also have a couple lower levels, the level below the rooftop has a DJ and a dance floor, some more bars... So why not dance you but off, then go up to the rooftop for some fresh air! ....and of course a drink or two! Their food was mediocre, their bottle service was great - they have a good selection of bottles and mixed juices in pitchers available. Overall best thing about 230 Fifth is their rooftop view, Worst is this place gets very crowded!
An Expansive Sports Bar, Heavy on the Sports
Eric G. Feb 19, 2013
Enter 200 Fifth from either its quieter restaurant side or its rowdier bar section and you'll understand the appeal it holds for even the casual sports fan: This place has TVs. Lots of them. It wouldn't surprise this reviewer to learn that the "200" in the establishment's name comes not from the address, but from the number of TVs placed over the long bar, hanging from the ceiling, affixed to the walls and above nearly every seat in the house. The sheer number of screens ensures that no one fan will lack the ability to catch the game of their choice -- a quality that can be equal parts exciting and confusing. Once your eyes adjust to the multitude of flashing squares, you can opt to go shoulder to shoulder with fellow denizens while chowing on basic sports bar fare -- the hot wings and six-layer nachos being your best bet for satisfaction -- or take the classier route and sit around the dark wood tables while your eyes remain glued to the screen(s). Either way, an extensive beer and wine list will keep you occupied for most of your stay. Rumor has it there's an upstairs roof deck, but any perks this place offers take a backseat to the myriad of basic sports bar selections. The food ranges from decent to pretty good, and the place can get crowded at times. If you're in the mood for a great meal and a romantic atmosphere, don't bother. But if you want to watch any game, drink any beer and eat sliders with your friends, you can't go wrong here.
Good view, but touristy
Sarah R. Jan 23, 2013
Even though it's billed as a sports bar, the roof deck at 200 Fifth is the venue's most redeeming quality. The drinks are overpriced and tourists in thick velvet robes give the place a lowbrow Playboy mansion type of feel, but if you're visiting New York City from out of town there's no better place to get a close-up view of the Empire State Building. To make the most of it, go earlier in the afternoon during spring or summer when it's warm enough to fully enjoy the roof deck, and before the after-work crowd gives way to rowdier groups.
Fun, albeit terrifying
Chris K. Nov 15, 2012
200 Fifth is an incredible sports bar if you live for the game, because there are screens EVERYWHERE. That's no joke--they line the walls, they dangle from the bar, and they even hang over each seat in a booth facing the person opposite them, so you don't even have to have a conversation. Plus, if you want to watch the soccer game while your dinner date wants to watch the football game, you can do that. But the food is decent bar food, the drinks are stiff and pricey, and after a while all of the screens takes on a Matrix-esque atmosphere of strange paranoia and over-stimulation. Definitely has its moments, and can be a lot of fun, but man, so many screens...
Good TV Coverage - Soso Food
Steve C. Oct 7, 2012
This sports bar has various rooms, numerous flat screens and an ideal situation for watching a big sporting event or just your regular season MLB game. For a big time game, they will play the sound over music. Downsides are the food is average at best. Moslty fried bar food that is not difficult to make. Wait staff is not the most friendly and the crowds can get very large during a big time game. Overall, if you are looking for standard bar food and good TV coverage, this place is for you. If you are looking for better eats, stay away!
