The Rock’s proximity to Madison Square Garden isn’t the only reason to visit this bar: There’s a sizable selection of tap and bottled beers and enough TVs to keep you abreast of the action. Elbow room is plentiful most nights (unless the Knicks or Rangers are hosting a team worth watching), and the respectable burger clocks in at just $7. If you’re still set on scoring courtside seats, chat up ticket holders over free “wings and things,” served after every home game.
