Party Earth Blondies Review

The Scene

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.

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.

Sports Bar Madness
Risa C. Dec 7, 2012
Like beer? Like wings? Like sports? Win! Blondies is a solid choice for your game day viewing. The wings are actually pretty good, although not quite spicy enough for my taste and there is an obscenely large amount of screens showing sporting events - which is particularly good for Sunday football when there are several games going on at once. The service can be a bit shoddy on busy days, but I'm pretty sure you're going here for the games and not the service. If you're going for a big game I recommend making a reservation or coming early because the place gets quite packed.
Wing me, dogg

If your dream night involves thirty hot wings, some pigs in a blanket, five pitchers of Stella, and watching Victor Cruz run in a touchdown to the wild gesticulations of screaming New Yorkers, then yes, Blondies is your bag. This sports bar and wing joint is like a rich man's hooters, full of boisterous good times and addictive bar food but without overdone honies named Krystal or Candy touching your elbows and putting a question mark at the end of every sentence. Plus, there's a real love of NYC sports here, but also a respect for some outsider traffic--Blondies happily hosts college football games and international soccer events. Dude, come over. We got wings.
A great place to watch Big Ten Sports
Jacqui J. Sep 14, 2012
Blondie’s is the place to go for any NYC-based Big Ten Alum. It’s a great place to go on game day because it boasts tons of TVs, a great community atmosphere and a tasty selection of bar food. If you are with a big group of friends, be sure to call ahead and get a reservation—they are quite accommodating--because the tables do fill up quickly on the weekends. However if you are by yourself or with a small group, the bar area is a load of fun: don’t be surprised if they doll out free shots when your team scores a TD!
