However, Hibernia sports bar comes pretty close and offers a one-of-a-kind version of the live sporting event action. Hibernia Bar is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan on 9th Ave, a few blocks away from Broadway, Time’s Square, and just a short walk from about every subway line that runs through Manhattan. Known by locals as the best sports bar in all of Hell’s Kitchen, Hibernia Bar is the best place to watch any sporting event anytime of the year. Hibernia is a top tier, highly rated pub and eatery. People constantly rave about the great food selections ranging from Irish fare to American wings, and the vast drink menu.

What makes Hibernia a great bar to watch sports goes beyond the projector and the many TVs (although it does help to watch the game on a large wall covering screen). Hibernia is considered one of the best sports bar because of the sports watching experience.
Best Irish Bar NYC
Hibernia truly excels at separating ourselves from the rest of the pact; part of it is our extensive selection of Irish Whiskeys and perfectly poured 20oz Guinness Imperial pints. Not the regular 16oz lager you get at the other bars. You might not be in Dublin, but our atmosphere and our perfectly poured Guinness beers will definitely make you feel like you’re at home.
We have a wide selection of craft beer, bottled beer, and draft beer that you can choose from. The best bar in Hell’s Kitchen wouldn’t be the best without the best cocktail bar and wine bar in Hell’s Kitchen as well. You won’t find better drinks whether they’re work drinks or party drinks or drinks for watching sports, there isn’t a better bar than Hibernia when it comes to what drink we can make for you.
Drinks like Jameson, Powers, Bushmills, Redbreast, Knappogue, and the infamous Tullamore Dew grace our famous whiskey menu. Guinness, Stella Artois, Blue Moon, Goose Island, Yuengling, and Dogfish Head highlight our Draught Beer menu while Budweiser, Coors, Heineken, Corona, Michelob and Pabst Blue Ribbon highlight our Bottled Beer menu.
Best Burger & Wings NYC
People come to Hibernia for the food and stay for the food. Our food compliments any sports event and is perfect whether you want something to snack on or a full course dinner. Any American or Irish food that you’ll find at your average bar, you can also find here. But there’s much more here. Our food menu has been highly touted throughout all of Midtown and is a key reason why we claim the title of “Best Bar in Hell’s Kitchen”. Burgers, hot dogs, wings, tacos and the best Irish food in Hell’s Kitchen keep our customer’s mouths watering and drinks flowing.
Amazing appetizers such as wings, mozzarella sticks, fully-loaded nachos, jalapeño poppers, and the fresh bacon spinach salad highlight top of our menu.

What sets our menu apart from the rest is our heralded and astonishing Irish Fare that is simply the best taste of Ireland that you’ll get in all of Midtown. Along with our amazing, signature Homemade Shepherd’s Pie, our delicious Traditional Fish & Chips made with beer-battered fresh cod fillet is a fan-favorite, we also serve some of the best Bangers and Mash you will find in all of Hell’s Kitchen. Our Potato Skins, Sausage Rolls, and Hasher sandwich are also highly-sought after. Our renowned Irish menu wouldn’t be as heralded as it is without our famous Irish Fry-Up: 2 fried eggs, Irish sausage, black and white pudding, rashers, grilled and grilled tomatoes served with crispy fries or tater tots and beans and toast is truly the cherry on top of the best Irish Pub in Hell’s Kitchen.

What Time Is Happy Hour?
At Hibernia, it’s always happy hour, but to be fair, ours is from 7-12pm.
Why is it called Happy Hour?
We believe that Happy Hour is called Happy Hour because we literally give you the best possible burger and beer special in NYC. Where can you find a $10 beer, burger and fries in Hell’s Kitchen? Like nowhere!
According to Wikipedia,
“One possible origin of the term “Happy Hour,” in the sense of a scheduled period of entertainment, is from the United States Navy. In early 1913, a group of “home makers” called the “Happy Hour Social” organized “semi-weekly smokers” onboard USS Arkansas. The name “Happy Hour Club,” “Happy Hour Social Club,” and similar variants, had been in use as the names of social clubs, primarily by women’s social clubs, since at least the early 1880s. By June 1913, the crew of Arkansas had started referring to their regularly scheduled smokers as “Happy Hours.” The “Happy Hours” included a variety of entertainment, including boxing and wrestling matches, music, dancing and movies. By the end of World War I, the practice of holding “Happy Hours” had spread throughout the entire Navy.”
Is Happy Hour Every Day?
We have to limit it some something fun, so the short answer to that is no, just Monday – Friday from 12-7pm.
Best Steelers Bar in New York, NY
As die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fans, we celebrate their victories at Hibernia heavily. If they go all the way, you can expect a crazy Steelers’ presence at Hibernia. But we’re much more inclusive than that. Our many TVs offer everybody a chance to watch their favorite team’s game throughout the various sports seasons.
We have a huge Mets following and an annual Mets trip every year which starts off at Hibernia, then proceeds onwards into the Hibernia party bus, with our own private section at Citi Field, and then a party, a raffle, and then giveaways when we get back to Hibernia.
The Mets trip only scratches the surface of our awesome events and giveaways that we do all the time. We have a yearly Golf Outing as well as huge parties that are extremely fun for St. Patrick’s Day (obviously), the Tartan Day Parade, Halloween and Cinco de Mayo. Large crowds line the streets of Midtown on these days and we keep our doors wide open. We also pride ourselves with the atmosphere that we’ve created – you don’t want to miss any holiday because our parties are nothing short of epic.
