Went to Manhattan this past weekend and watched the game at an Eagles bar. Such annoying fans. Anyway, is there a real deal Dolphins bar in Manhattan that anyone knows of? I recall a list that I saw somewhere with Dolphins bars on it. Any help?

go to phins.com and there's a list of sports bars that Dolphin fans identified as being places that Phin fans hang at.

I used to go down state once a month or so on the weekends. I could never find a "dolphin bar" so I always went to the espn zone. ON the upside you will see the game. They have EVERY game on. Downside: its in time square (which I think is a pain in the a$$), its expensive, and its crowded so get there by noon or so if you want a bar stool. Hope this helps.

Thanks. Yeah, I live in Queens and went to this Eagles bar last week and had fun but I just thought it would be pretty awesome to watch the Fins at a bar with all Fins fans. Unfortunately, down here in NYC, I am forced to watch games with Jets fans around most of the time and that is the WORST!

That sounds like a good idea, but I doubt there are enough people here who live in NYC who could accomplish such a feat! Yep, I am issuing a challenge. Let's find a bar and make it a Miami Dolphins bar in Manhattan. A struggling bar on Sundays would love the publicity of being the ONLY Dolphins bar in Manhattan. It would be like our own mini Dolphins Stadium....

Who is in?

That bar in Jersey is definitely a phins bar although I drove there (1 hr and 30 minute drive) to watch the game vs. the Titans last year and they didn't have it even though I was asssured they would. If I didn't have DirecTV and I was forced to have to go to a bar that was local, I'd definitely go there.

Yikes, that is a hike. Oh well, guess I will watch it in NYC at some bar with jets fans swarming around. As long as they have Jaeger, I am good to go!

We used to have a spot called South Beach over on 2nd Avenue a few years ago, but that went out of business. Now, I usually hit one of the bars on 8th Avenue near 48th street. We should band together and carve out a spot.

Third and Long over on 2nd Avenue and 35/36th is also an option. What do ya think?

Yeah just take the place over...that is what we did here in Colorado Springs....we got tired of seeing the Denver Donkeys everywhere...so we took over a bar called Kelly O'Brians and we sometimes have 60 Dolphin fans there at a time. I like watching all the games though so I go to a place down the road that has every game and the best food of any bar I have been too (called the Overtime here in Colorado Springs).

wow. i was just this moment , thinking of where i could watch my fins this weekend. i have DTV nfl ticket, but im having my house remodled, and had to move into an apartment for a couple of months. and i cant have sattelite here. I know the head bartender at a bar right next to 3rd and long, called 515 Bar. I know they have directv. i just called my friend who goes there regularly and he confirmed. Unfortunately, Gary (the bartender i know), doesnt work sundays, but i know the sunday tender and hes cool too. I'm trying, as we speak , to find out if they can put the fins game on one of the HUGE screens there. Its a good place to hang and watch the game. tehy have about 6 LCD tv's (not big screens) and a couple of larger flat pannel screens along with 3 HUGE projector screens. it atrracts alot of bostonians, tho. They show up for the redsox and pats games alot. The food is good and they have 2 big bars. Has anyone who lives in NY ever been there?

I have been to 515....it is right next to the Joshua Tree, correct? By the way, Carls Steaks (Philly Cheese Steaks) right next to there has AMAZING food!

Gotta get the 515 bartender to have the bar designated a FINS BAR!

I haven't been for a Fin game yet, but was there last week for a brew when my car was getting worked on. Nice place! When I do come to a fin game, you will be the first one I find!;)

YES the cheese staeks at carls are great. i'm working on it. but besides myself, i only see the occasional fin fan there. but while i'm out of my house and a couple of u guys want to meet there for a few weeks, thats cool with me. I'll get back on here later and tell u if i was successful in securing one of the big screens. but it looks like slim pickins in NYC for a fins bar. I wish there were a fins bar in Queens.

Much as I would like everyone to come to the sportz bar at the ramada I will share something I know with you New Yawkers. My friend and her hubby live in New York. They used to come to the sportz bar, still occasionally do, but they found a place 15 minutes from their house that does show Dolphin games and you actually get volume on them. I don't know New York so I don't know how far White Plains is from the city, but they go to a place in White Plains called The Sports Page on Mamaroneck (sp?) Avenue. I don't know if they have a website, but you can do a search on the net for their phone number.

Went back to school Monday - out today for Yom Kippur. But AJ sent her the cutest Miami Dolphins cheerleader outfit while she was sick and she wore it to pick me up. Representin the Dolphins. When you come bring your son too. Is he a Dolphins fan also?

and I hated to tell them that, but if they're insistent upon not leaving NY, at least let them get to see and hear a fins game. One guy I know lives in the Bronx and he used to have to go to some local bar (I don't know the name) and huddle up at the bar to this teeny tiny tv screen and watch the game with no volume. Of course he smartened up and now comes to the sportz bar.

I will, he won't let me go without him. I have to wait until Nov. I'm coaching the HS baseball team he plays on and we play doubleheaders on Sun (what I do for my 14 year old), so I don't get done until 2:00ish. Life as a dad!:cry:

Awesome. I know a guy who comes from Port Jervis with his 12 year old son, Conner. They might hit it off. I don't let Meghan stay during the games because it's so loud and very smoky.

thanks for the info NJ. unfortunately, White plains isnt too close to my house. My problem is i like to have a few while i watch the games, so i cant drive. Or else i would def. come to the ramada to catch the fins. its too easy for me to just jump in a cab or the train to NYC to a bar and not have to worry about driving! we should get a party bus to take us to Jersey!!! and take us back of course ;)

The one thing I hate about going to bars is the smoke! I can't stand the smell when I get home! We will have to have a FinHeaven game at my house with Directv! No smoke! Kids can stay! One of these days! We will get a few NJ people together, just don't tell whaft, he may drive all the way up and we will never get rid of him!;)

Well, back to building my ARK so I don't drown!

this rain is freakin ridiculous. When is it going to stop? Are you anywhere near Oakland? And Wharf has told me he'll come to the sportz bar at some point - hasn't shown yet - but he might. I'm sure he'd drive up to your house to see a game or two! :D

I'm in Oakland, I'm up on the mountain, not where the houses are underwater. But Man, it just has no place to go! It was over my basement windows and pouring in. I have been living here 14 years and never had water.

I know a few people that live in the houses you are seeing on TV, the army corp of engineers is killing these people with that dam in Pompton Lakes!

Dude - sorry - had no idea you lived in Oakland. My husband and I live in East Orange and we were driving today and he's like "look at all this water - there's nowhere for it to go."

We are okay, I keep looking at those shots from down south in N.O. and such. It's noting like that except along the river, they are a mess.

You should try out the sportz bar in jersey. The only thing once you go you will want to go back every week. It is a great time watching the game with so many fin fans! And if you have one or two, too many just get a room at the hotel its right there. Just stumble back to your room.
