The mindless depravity never ends at the sprawling, boozy Finnerty’s, where fresh-faced coeds amass to slurp swilly beer so cheap, even penny-scrounging longhairs can afford a pitcher or four. The dark corners of the dart room are ideal for furtive snogs, but who are we kidding? After 2am, most patrons are too trashed to notice even the most blatant make-out sessions.

An invitingly divey sports bar, with the main room pretty raucous on (any kind of) game day. The back room's a little more laid back.

Want to watch some sports minus the obnoxious crowds? Finnerty's has you covered. Before I continue, let me just preface this by saying that I'm a Pats fan, and have only been to Finnerty's during a Boston sports event. I'm sure when the Niners or Giants are playing, this place will look more like Prof. Thom's. Anyways, with TVs littered throughout the main room and back room, you'll be assured to catch your favorite team playing. If you're into a more rowdy crowd, the front room's more fun, whereas the back room is where you can go for a more subdued crowd. Make this your game day destination with affordable beers on tap ($7-8), friendly patrons and helpful bartenders!


Finnerty's is an awesome story.Back in 2010 when the San Francisco Giants went on their first World Series run, us Giants fans in NYC needed a place to congregate, and Finnerty's became the default, go to place.They handled that run so marvelously that all those fans just kept coming back for all things Bay Area.So Finnerty's finally just said "You know what, lets embrace this" and became the official bar for not just the Giants, but the 49ers, Sharks, and Warriors, along with the Pac-12 on Saturdays.Some of my most amazing NYC memories took place at Finnerty’s, most notably getting a picture there with the World Series trophy along with my Dad, a lifetime Giants fan who waited over 50 years for them to win it all.Wish I could give this place six stars.
