I visit New York every December, sometimes I go to a game (Giants/Jets) but if I don't watch a live game I'll look to spend all day in a bar watching the games, I used to head to Bradys bar in Greenwich Village but I found The Mean Fiddler a couple of years ago and love it there.
Probably a dozen TVs across the pub for every game being played, perfect for me as I tend to have a bet in most games, bar was invaded by a coach load of Ravens fans who were good value until the Skins nicked it.
Food is decent, I had medium wings which come up big and pack a reasonable punch, upgrade to 'hot' and you might regret it !
Not a place for a cosy quiet drink after work with the missus but if a few budies are getting together for a beer then this place is perfect,

My wife and I stumbled across this bar whilst having our photos taken outside the next door club, Copacabana.

Glad we did as we were warmly greeted by the bar lady as soon as we entered.

Nice and quick service with a smile and great food, we had one of the classic burgers and a cheese n tomato toasted sandwich.

Would definitely go back!

It is very casual, the hot buffalo wings are great and the beer is cheap. Great if you just want to chill and not be bothered with too much service.
