Bar Coastal

Finally, a hangout for landlocked Upper East Side beach bums, where surfboards suspended from the ceiling dangle alongside a faux hammerhead shark and plastic palm trees. Look past the surfer crossing sign, however, and you’ll see this place for what it is: a rowdy sports bar with flirtatious bar vixens, where dudes slam “Jäger Bombs”—Jägermeister submerged in a glass of Red Bull, $7—to the sounds of Top 40 tunes. Far out indeed.

There are plenty of sports bars on the Upper East Side to chose from. Luckily for Bar Coastal, their laid back California surfer theme sets them aside from the rest. The staff is super friendly and want you to feel at home. Its not just about surfboards and sports here though, they have lots of tasty grub for you to chose from. If you are feeling brave, try the wings that are so spicy they are described as abusive, nuclear and suicidal. Not feeling like burning your lips off? Then go for the jumbo buffalo shrimp or waffle fries with cheese dipping sauce.

Fantastic sports bar. TVs everywhere. Don't hesitate to ask the staff to put your teams game on if you're an out-of-towner. They'll gladly do it for you! 


Some of the best bar food I've had in the city. They're known for their wings (ask for Carrie style, it's a secret menu item). If you're not feeling wings the quesadillas are huge and delicious. Bar Costal is also a great place to gather your friends to watch college football on Saturdays. You can't beat 6 hours of unlimited beer and wings for just $50.

It is hard to find really great buffalo wings in New York but Bar Coastal has nailed it. This bar may seem a bit "fratty" upon first glance, but they recently redecorated. Not only is the food great for dine in, but they are also amazing with delivery! Try their onion fries, or waffle fries with cheese, to compliment the amazing wings! I took my friend there who judges national buffalo competitions and he even admitted, they aren't fancy, but they are great classic wings.

Hello My wife and I went in the Bar Coastal in September 2012 when we were in New York and the place is wonderful, the waitresses are attentive, very graceful and beautiful. The beer and the food are excellent and the price is very good too. We are Brazilians and we loved the place. Congratulation. Have a nice day, goodbye Lauro from Brazil
