Any pregame hangout bar before devils game at rock

Is there any bar near the rock that rangers fans hang out at before rangers- devils games. Would like to know a few back with fellow blueshirters before next Tuesday's game. Thanks

There's only 1 bar that I know of nearby. It's just down the street from the front entrance, going away from the train station. I forget the name of it, but they have really good wings.

They are no Rangers specific ones, but Hellz Kitchen is awesome. Have some of the best burgers I've ever had in my life, and really good wings. My wife's a season ticket holder for the Devils and we go there all the time. They'll be some Rangers fans there, but it's definitely more Devils. But as long as you're civil and not a dick, you'll be fine!

Edison Ale House is another good one, right across from the Rock. Was just there about an hour ago, cause I had to take the Mrs. there to cover the Niedermayer press conference (she's a volunteer for the Devils generals). Another good place, had a grilled balsamic sandwich on a chibatta roll, and sweet potato fries with brown sugar on them...YUMMY!!!

STAY AWAY I REAPEAT STAY AWAY FROM HELLS KITCHEN.
1. Its a Devils bar
2. The staff and owner are very disrespectful people

If you want a good bar hit mmm bellos pub on market street. literally right across from newark penn. Good burgers, good variety of tap beer, and over 100 bottled beers.

I popped in Hells once or twice before a game and it looks like a solid place. Kind of small though and it can get crowded quick.

As a Rangers fan, I disagree with that last part. Yes, it IS a Devils bar..but I have never had a problem with the staff or owners. Again, if you are not a dick, you will be fine.

I third MMMBellos. Excellent bottled microbrews for less than you'd pay for a Bud in Manhattan.

Majority of the arena will be Devil fans but there will be a good turnout of Ranger fans like there usually is. All three games I went to last year there were more Devil fans. The most Ranger fans was the game in December where the Devils basically hit rock bottom and I'd say there was between 40 and 50 percent Ranger fans.

It's defiantly not like Nassau Coliseum where we dominate the building, but a good portion of the crowd will be in blue. I'm expecting a lot of Ranger fans there for sure.

Once you get off LIRR any NJ transit will stop at Newark so there is one leaving every 5 minutes or so during rush hour..you must buy ticket for train in advance or get with $5 surcharge...once at newark follow the hockey jerseys two blocks to the Prudential Center. If raining take indoor gateway plaza walkway which starts at Penn Station and ends across the street from Rock....beware some devils fans can get rowdy towards the blueshirt crowd but it does take two to tango (honestly we treat them better at MSG even though there are very few that show for Rangers-Devils games at MSG). But all in all it is a fun festive rivalry nite. I will be there wearing the blue.

Unless you're looking for trouble nobody is going to bother you. This isn't Philadelphia.

Yeah the gateway walkway is quicker too probably. The PATH is also an option if you want and it is cheaper. After you get off at Penn, just walk a block from MSG to 32nd and 6th and you'll see the entrances for the PATH either through the Manhattan Mall or in front of the park. You have to take the Journal Square train, get off at Journal Square, and then transfer for the Newark train. It'll let you off at Newark Penn which is where NJ Transit would leave you as well. It's pretty quick too since it will be during rush hour.

Thanks for the info seems to be more convenient than driving and worrying about traffic and parking.

No one likes you Staten Island. NYC tries to disown & pawn you off on New Jersey at every turn. New Jersey responds with a collective rolling of the eyes & sucking of the teeth. Yuck.

Staten Island Don't want.
