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.
It's all true – I agree with all the comments here. Standings is a very small, sports dive bar with a great beer selection. And the bartender (on Friday eves) is aloof/grumpy/ill-informed about the beers. But the overall experience is quite good.
Awesome Bar!! – I went with a bunch of people and was amazed by how many TV's they had . Great place to just go and hang out and watch any sporting event. The owner Gary was really cool and they had a nice selection of beer.
Sports and Beer and Lotsa Atmosphere – I love this place! Ok, partly because they seem to be going in the direction of being a Cubs bar. As a lifelong Chicagoan transplanted to New York, this is great! But the beer selection and the atmosphere are huge pluses. (The beer selection regularly rotates!) And I am definitely looking forward to football season, as this seems like a nice place to hang out on a cold winter's day or night and shoot the breeze with any conversational clientele. Don't let the amount of TVs stop you from coming in. This is not an "in your face", blaring, glaring sports bar. It is a place to catch a variety of different games and meet a nice mix of friendly bartenders and patrons. The special free food nights are fantastic. And you've got Pommes Frites around the corner where you can purchase all fries all the time, with any of a number of sauces, and bring them to the bar! Don't forget to look up at the ceiling for an endless array of sports jerseys and paraphernalia and check out the train track running along the upper wall of the bar.
good beer and sports bar – an exemplary selection of ever-rotating microbrews and great sports coverage are the key points to this small east village pub. theme nights featuring top breweries are very appreciated. free food hours are also quite nice. the only niggle i have with this bar is one of the regular bar tenders. his 'don't bother me i'm hanging with my buddies' attitude is bizarre. maybe if he actually got into what it is he's there for, he'd get bigger tips? the only downer to an otherwise terrific place.
Best Sports Bar, but Don't Think You'll See the Sox Here in the ALCS – Bummah!!! So Standings, yeah? Best spaahhhts bahhh evahh (in New York). But here it is, Game 2 of the ALCS, and we?ve invited people from Way Far Away to come with us to the BEST RED SOX BAR IN NEW YORK CITY, and guess what? Sox on two tiny TVs, and NO SOUND! Why? Cuz there?s CAL fans there. Actual other regular(ish)es, as they were walking out of the bar, said to us, ?Dude?this is most definitely not the place to see the Sox game tonight.? Sad, so sad. And the owner? He said, ?Too bad the Sox are crossing seasons this year. It?s tough.? Guess I should go to Professor Tom?s now that Standings has sold out. Particularly if anything in the World Series falls on a CAL game Saturday.
Weathered pub where local fans share relaxed pints and game commentary. – The Scene
Standings are just what you'll get at this classic neighborhood pub--from the bar's blackboards slated with up-to-date stats and the friendly, vocal fan base that hangs out. Team pennants plaster the brick walls and dark wood carved bar; rows of dusty antique beer cans run along the ceiling like crown molding; an old model train track circuits the room. Gruff young bartenders warm up once the game starts.
Seven flat screens tune in to local and national matchups. Weeknights draw a small neighborhood crowd, while raffles and free snacks (ordered in from nearby restaurants) bring in bigger numbers during weekend games--with a sports debate bound to strike up between strangers at any given time. Beer's what's on tap--which rotates, but always boasts local ales like Sixpoint Craft and smaller national breweries--plus a selection of 25 bottled beers. Down the Midas Touch--a beer that is thick like liquor and so strong it's served in a wine glass--and you're golden.
BIG 'OLE NEIGHBORHOOD BLOCK PARTY – Hands down the best place in the neighborhood to watch a game & socialize complete with STANDINGS board, fantasy leagues and some nice beers on tap...Bring in a burger from Paul's (around the corner) and settle in for the night...can't wait for pigskin season...
Yeeeeeeeeeee! – Even by New York standard this place is Tiny! We were there mid-afternoon so to comment on the clientele wouldn't be fair. However, it's essentially a dive by any reasonable standards.
Kick Back and down a few – This place rocks...relaxed vibe with game sound...although I respect the Red Sox my mission is to convert this place to a Cus hangout!! Go Cubbies!! Get some Goose Island on tap and I think I'd live here...
HOGS & HEIFERS MEETS ESPN ZONE – I 'm from out of town but had to sign up and give this place a plug...great beer selection for a sports bar and an intimate, friendly environment where everybody is discussing sports and fantasy leagues...will definitely come back on my next visit to NYC...
