Now that the Yankees have clinched the AL East, where will you watch them as they enter the postseason? When you can’t be with the boys from the Bronx during gametime, these are the best bars to watch the New York Yankees in action.

Reviews & More Info

Stan’s rightfully describes itself as a “fixture” on River Avenue. Just steps from the stadium, the sports bar walls are plastered with Bombers memorabilia. It gets rowdy before, during and just after games. If you’re looking to truly experience “Yankee country” – this is the place to do so.

Dive Bar offers 29 beers on tap, nearly 100 different bottles, six hard-to-find cans, two casks, and one of our favorite menu items: the growler — a 64 oz. bottle full of draft beer to bring home. Happy Hour is from 4:00-7:00 p.m., and pitchers of Bud Light are $12 during game time.

Reviews & More Info

If you secure a spot inside this Hoboken hotspot, you’re set. With two floors and 50 flat screen TVs, you’d be hard pressed to find a more ideal location when it comes to sports bars. Get there before the game for happy hour, and you can score half off on drinks and appetizers. But get there early – lines sometimes form outside the bar before game time.
