Best Sports Bar


Croxley’s Abbey isn’t reinventing the sports bar — it’s just doing it better than anyone else (and so is its sibling, Croxley’s Ales, at 28 Avenue B in Manhattan and four other locations on Long Island). Grab a spot at the bar or commandeer a booth; every seat in the house affords an ample view of the action, which flickers across 38 flat-screens spread throughout the space. The bar pours 48 beers on tap and scads more in bottle, so you can spend game day sampling Belgian ales and American crafts side by side. Pair your pour to a platter of wings, that football-viewing staple, which are occasionally offered at the low price of 10 cents apiece. Need more substantial fare? The sizable menu also includes mussels, sandwiches, and burgers.
