Maybe you need a place to watch Monday Night Football with clients, or perhaps your little brother wants to watch college football with the rest of the JP Morgan training program. Either way, The Ainsworth in Chelsea is a good choice. It’s a big bar that works when some people want to watch sports (there are a ton of TVs), but others just want an upscale spot to wear business casual and drink Manhattans at 3pm on a Saturday.
