Upper West Side, New York –
Light on the décor but heavy on the beer and the flat-screen TVs, Blondies is a must for die-hard fans in need of a sports fix, whether they want to see the NBA Finals or Sunday NFL football.
An illuminated awning and double glass doors lead sports lovers into the no-frills pub, which features a long wood bar, plain tables and seating, and a slew of televisions perfectly distributed to ensure that there’s not a bad seat in the house.
A dining area set off from the bar by a wood lattice provides plenty of red-clothed tables, comfy banquettes, and more flat screens so guests won’t miss a thing while they munch on their appetizers.
On big game days, the place gets so packed – not to mention incredibly rowdy – that reservations are required for table service, or patrons can just squeeze in at the bar with the friendly crowd of old-time regulars, rambunctious young professionals, and eager out-of-towners hoping to see one of the famous athletes – like former Yankees pitcher David Wells – who occasionally make an appearance.
The bar’s mouth-watering wings, welcoming and down-to-earth staff, and boisterous crowd make Blondies a sports haven both day and night.
Forty flat-screen TVs and two big-screen projectors featuring sports of all kinds. Jukebox with mostly classic rock selections.
Substantial menu of bar food, appetizers, and entrées, including four types of chicken wings. Happy Hour M–F 4–7pm.
Cover charge $10–$20 for Pay-Per-View events. Appetizers $5.95–$13.95, entrées $9.95–$22.95. Beer $5–$6, cocktails $7–$9.
Anything goes, from sports jerseys and sneakers to jeans and heels.
Monday nights for football, Friday and Saturday nights, or any time there’s a big sports event.
Friendly rounds of beer pong can be had any night at either Jake’s Dilemma (430 Amsterdam Avenue) or the Gin Mill (442 Amsterdam Avenue).
