Kelly's in the East Village is a Chicago bar and I am sure will be showing the game. It is a bit of a dive though, so be warned.

Flying Puck, the 13th Step, Pennsylvania 6 and Stout will all likely have the game on with hockey fans watching. All had Rangers viewing parties for game 7.

Van Diemens is awesome at least when the Canadian hockey teams are playing.

I posted this in the post game talk thread. It's a video of the Flying Puck when we won game 7 against the Pens the other night. They also show all NHL games aside from NYR. Only place to be in NY to watch a game.



I got here from a thread that was moved from the main board asking 'Best place in NYC to watch the game'. That's why I made this response.

The Flying Puck
364 7th Ave, New York, NY 10001

Appreciate it! I'll probably check it out tomorrow night.

I'd get there at least an hour early. A friend tried to go there last round to watch a game and couldn't get in the door.

My brother (a huge rangers fan) and I will be going into the city on thursday. We're hoping to spend some time at the hockey house, and try our luck at meeting some players/ getting autographs. Does anyone have any suggestions?

We'll also need a place to watch the game, any suggestions for a place thats friendly for someone under 21? Thanks in advance!

I am going to be in the city this weekend and wondered if there was a good place to watch the Chicago game Saturday night? Prefer in Manhattan if possible as it will be easier. Kelleys was mentioned but nothing about being a Chicago bar. Thanks!

The Flying Puck is the only answer I can give. I am sure there's a bar for Chicago somewhere in the city I just don't know it personally.

Windy City bar and grill in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, total Chicago Blackhawks bar. Take an R train ride to Brooklyn, 77th street stop, its about 25 minute ride out of Manhattan, 5 minute walk from train to the bar. It's a breeze.

R train doesn't connect Brooklyn and Manhattan still due to the construction on the tunnel so just keep that in mind.

what happened, Bluenote, you finally move out of Bay Ridge? One can take a train to Atlantic Avenue/Barclays and switch for the R (Which I believe is Pacific Street, but connected to the same station). Still a pretty easy trip. 4/5 is the best if one is near Grand Central or Union Square or 59th street east side. 2/3 on the west side. And of course a bunch of other trains that go to Pacific Street and I believe are just across the platform (B,D), or on the same track (N). A not-so-bad trip for a person looking for that kind of bar, and sometimes it's nice to be in the other boroughs.

Thanks for the heads up everyone! I think Kelly's is going to have to work as she scheduled a dinner with friends at 6:30. I told her at 8pm we are out to watch the game. At least I am. I will be there with a Keith jersey on so hit me up and I might blow the cobwebs out of my wallet and buy you a drink

Oops--be careful with the Atlantic/Pacific train station--they are separate, not on the same track. The R, N and D go through Pacific (not that it's called that anymore) and the B and the Q run through Atlantic. There's a significant walk, plus up and down stairs to get from one to the other.

Instead, take the B, D, N or Q train from Manhattan (nice view from the Manhattan Bridge) and get off at DeKalb Ave--the R train is just accross the tracks--or if you are on the N train, stay on until 36th street and switch there for the R.

Yeah that Uno's still does business here. Oddly enough all the chain restaurants do well around here. The Outback steakhouse in Bensonhurst is packed every night.

Yeah I'm still here but I avoid the train as much as possible I take the express bus into Manhattan so I forget the R train line stops at Dekalb, you need to transfer to one of the lines that goes over the bridge like the N train.

Thank you, Brooklyn...

yes, D, N, R are on the same platform - sorry for the confusion (was just there last week and seem to always remember it by the initials, DNR!). I did think it's still called Pacific, though, although haven't gotten off or on there in years, just transferred once (I'm on the F line, and stay on the F line!). And those steps...ugh!

Bluenote - I'm surprised about Outback and Uno. Well, for me, I like mostly locally owned (try to support as much as possible, but it's getting more and more difficule), but have been partial to home cooking of late because you just can't get into any good place after 6:30pm these days!

The Pacific Street station has been wiped off the map at the MTA website--it's called Atlantic/Barclays on the maps although it's still says Pacific St at the station itself. The transfer between the three subway lines there is much better since the rennovation, but it's still a schlep.

As for me, I stay away from transferring there whenever possible--but I'm usually on the F too. It's funny how I've really missed the R running into Manhattan. Damn you Sandy.

Same here, Brooklyn. I only notice the sign when I'm there (Pacific Street) or walking outside. There are a couple bars there (on 4th Avenue)) I'd go to and took the R from the City (especially since I work on the Lexington line). Waiting for that darn F express already! Trains sucked this Winter; better not have these issues in the Summer! Signal problem after signal problem after signal problem!!! Bottom line is it ain't such a bad trip to Brooklyn these days (much to my chagrin at times because I rarely can get a pie from Totonno's in the Summer any longer!!).

I know this is a shot in the dark, but is there a bar in New York that shows the ice hockey World Championships? I'd like to see the Finland - Czech Republic game tomorrow.

It's going to be on TV, NBC-sports channel. You should be able to go to any bar and ask them to put the game on.
