With their own clothing line and own motto (“for the fans, by the fans”) this army is a force to be reckoned with. If you think you can keep up with these fanatics, get to the bar early and prepare for the loudest, most energetic game watching experience of your life.
McFadden’s Citi Field
36-2 126th St, Queens
Want to be near the action but can’t find $700 to get a ticket to the big game? Join other Mets super fans in this spirited bar and prepare for a night of yelling, dancing on the bar, and clinking mugs in celebration. Show up early for a pre-game open bar special – $50 at the bar, or $40 in advance.
18 W 33rd St
Located around the corner from MSG, Foley’s offers Mets fans a baseball haven with an eclectic collection of memorabilia that gives the venue more character than your typical New York sports bar. Newbie fans be warned—these pub dwellers know their baseball stats, but they also know how to down a couple beers and have a good time.
43 E 7th St
Don’t let the small, narrow interior fool you—this bar is one of the best venues to watch the Mets play ball. With original Shea stadium seats and a chalkboard constantly updated with the division standings, you will definitely find your fellow fans here decked out in orange and blue.
221 Second Ave
Although its roots are with the San Francisco Giants, this bar draws a rowdy baseball crowd regardless of your affiliation. Come with friends and split a pitcher (or four) and hunker down to watch New York fight for America’s pastime’s most coveted title.
215 Prospect Park West
Open since 1933, this bar has been inviting Brooklyn’s old-school baseball fans to root, root root for the home team for nearly a century. A what-you-see-is-what-you-get type of venue, Farrell’s is the perfect spot to cheer on the Mets with no frills—just large, cold beers, and multiple flat screens to watch the action unfold.
312 Grand St
Come for the baseball, stay for the wings. This Brooklyn sports bar has plenty of grub to keep you fueled for all nine innings—and more, if necessary. Watch the game with fellow fans and yell at one of the 12 plasma TV screens between bites of this sports bar’s award winning wing selection. M-E-T-S METS METS METS!
64 Third Ave
Planning to watch the World Series with a big group of friends? Request “The Dugout”—a private party room that you can reserve at this East Village hot spot. If you’re just looking for a rowdy crowd and an exotic beer menu to order from, the Village Pourhouse can provide that, too. By the seventh inning stretch, you’ll all be BFFs anyway.
206 E 67th St
Upper East Side
Autographed Mets jersey? Check. 16 flat screens playing the game? Check. FULL SOUND? Check! This Upper East Side bar has all your Mets super fan needs and will be sure to draw a die-hard crowd this weekend. The best part? Bedford Falls has been rooting for the Mets since before it was cool (aka two weeks ago).
