…opening ceremonies, to man’s favourite ladies beach volleyball, to worldwide favourite gymnastics & swimming – nothing beats a little like-minded company to cheer on your home team! From Uptown to Downtown you’ll find your friends from around the globe ready to get into the Games action:

 

West Village White Hall, British with a modern twist.

Straight up great locale with perks of a special Olympics happy hour from 5 to 7pm on Friday – and for our friends originating trans-atlantic, if you flash a British passport,

drinks are on the house!

 

 

Midtown Big Screen Plaza, fresh air fondness.

Midtown Big Screen Plaza: fresh air fondness.

Prefer to opt for natural light? Find the games on the massive screen while touching on school sports’ day memories with tug-o-war + horse hoses along with more adult olympic events as Beer Pong + Beer Slides.

Did I mention the Greg Louganis Springboard (aka british gin) cocktails..?

 

 

Kips Bay Churchill, London's calling.

 Upping the odds: they had me at hello with the nostalgic proper British tavern vibe. They will keep me hanging about with a mysterious “surprise treat” served on the housewith each gold medal pulled in by team England!

 

 

Chelsea Smithfield, Pimms + Hendricks + English grub.

Count on a bar known as “the home of football in NYC” to offer up a trifecta of Olympic-ness. Well priced $6 cocktails, twenty-one (yes that’s plenty of) TV’s, and boasting of opening hours as early as 10:30am for top events – and with the +5 time London time difference it’s ‘game on’ at all times!

 

 

NOHO Slainte, beers on bowery + healthy happy hour!

Get cozy in this intimate Irish drinkery. With 20 beers on tap, and a two-for-one beer and wine happy hour special weekdays from noon to 8 p.m this establishment is surely to receive plenty of support!

 

 

Murrary Hill, rooftop timeouts.

Murrary Hill, rooftop timeouts.

Plethora of drink specials, plasma TV’s, cushy sofas and breathing room with touristy-worthy views via the rooftop patio. Has weekday Olympic Fix written all over it with Olympics fix while enjoying happy hour specials such as $3 drafts and $4 well liquor drinks from 11am-8pm M-F.

 

 

Upper East Side Dorians, English 'charming' included.

Bring your Prep to mingle alongside Co-eds with gold metal class. In exchange for cold beer and raging burgers you’ll need to ensure your man dons a collared shirt to grant access to the Olympic hangout north of 83rd.

 

 

Bonus play:

Now this could make for a very interesting drinking game…

Enjoy & you will more than likely spot a few Sienna Ray girls at these events – under our stylish shell we are all-star sports fans…! xx
