Cocktails, fried food, and sports come together at SideBAR, a lounge-slash-sports bar right off Union Square. More than 20 high-definition TVs make the bar a prime spot for watching the game, but it's not unusual to see hoards of co-workers and miscellaneous networkers gathering in the large space on weeknights. Food is better-than-average bar fare, with options likes blue cheese truffle fries, bacon grilled cheese, and boneless Buffalo wings on-hand to soak up all the beer.
