The 9 Best Sports Bars In NYCIRISH ROVER: This lovely Astoria establishment leans more towards Irish pub status than straight-up sports scene, but it’s still a prime neighborhood spot to stop by for a game. In addition to the smattering of televisions scattered around the bar, the Irish Rover boasts a number of dart boards you can hit up for free, along with Buck Hunter and a jukebox. Best of all, if you make nice with the bartender, you can score a buyback on your third drink. You probably want to stick to beer here, and order a draft of Guinness; you’re in an Irish bar, for pete’s sake.
