The Big Whiskey is part of the same group as Whiskey Town, The Whiskey Annex, and a bunch of other bars around the city with whiskey in their names. As you might imagine, they offer a bunch of whiskeys here, which can come in handy if your starting QB seems to forget which color jerseys to throw to, or you’re a fan of the Jets. There’s a long bar as well as a bunch of booths for big groups, and no matter where you’re sitting or standing, you’ll have a good view of the raised TVs behind the bar. The big space, which feels like a converted warehouse, also has a couple beer pong tables in the basement in case some people in your group don’t feel like sitting in the same spot for seven hours straight.

If you’re wandering around 37th Street and you suddenly feel the urge to be in an authentic German beer garden, go to Reichenbach Hall.
A classic New York City gem, still standing from a time when horse and buggies were bringing people here to drink. Eat the chicken club sandwich, drink a Stella from the tap, and imagine that you’re about to head off for a sweet vacation aboard the Titanic.
