This old-school Irish bar still has the requisite pinch of grit lacking in so many of its midtown neighbors. It’s a haven for Knicks fans on game night, and judging by the decor, it has been for decades – they’ve got the sports memorabilia to prove it. Happy hour specials kick in just in time for tip-off: $1 dollar off every drink as you take in the action on any of the bar’s 14 big screens.

Conveniently located just across the street from the Garden, this sports bar/pub is the perfect place to grab a pre-game meal if you’ve got tickets to the game. Even if you don’t, you can catch the action on any of their large plasma screens over a plate of buffalo wings and buckets of Bud for $16.

Looking for dinner before gametime? Named for the Gaelic land of eternal youth, this genteel Irish pub offers a cozy, casual atmosphere amidst lace-curtain relics and architectural bric-a-brac salvaged from churches and castles of the old country. Huge picture windows open onto the church-pipe-organ turned bar and illuminate a civil place to enjoy a pint or whiskey. The Celtic-influenced American pub food offers excellent seafood dishes, as well as a memorable shepherd’s pie.
