You don't have to guess very hard to figure out what the theme of this type of bar is—sports, sports, and more sports. Many New Yorkers go to their favorite sports bars (we've listed a few of the ones located in and around New York City below) to enjoy drinks and snacks and watch a game with their friends.

Sports bars can be a lot of fun, and many people have their favorites. If you've never visited a sports bar before, or if you're looking for a new one, try one of these listed below. You're sure to have a good time no matter which one you choose.

Riviera Café, 225 W 4th Street

You'll have no problem finding a game to watch in this spectacular sports bar, because the owners subscribe to at least a dozen sports and premium channels. You can watch golf, basketball, football, baseball, hockey, and other sports on a 1080i high-definition TV screen. If you're not in the mood to watch a sports program at that time, or if you're waiting for your favorite one to come on and want to catch up on the news or watch another show, don't be afraid to ask the hosts. They'll be glad to turn on whatever you want to view.

Blondies Sports, 212 W 79th Street

Are you an alumni or fan of one of these schools--Michigan State, Ohio State, Northwestern University, Penn State, University of Oklahoma, University of Virginia, University of Kansas, Indiana University, University of Tennessee or John Hopkins University? Then, Blondies Sports is the place for you to be.

Don't worry if you're not a fan or an alumnus of one of those, though. You're still welcome at Blondies. Who knows—you may end up switching your allegiance.

Gym Sports Bar, 167 8th Avenue

If you practice the homosexual lifestyle and are looking for a place to watch sports and hang out with other men with whom you have this in common, you'll be perfectly at home at Gyms. The sports bar offers game viewing along with food and drink specials, while the Locker Room, located in the basement, provides a more intimate, personal atmosphere.

O'Flanagans, 1215 1st Avenue

If you've placed a friendly wager on a game, perhaps the luck of the Irish will be with you when you visit this restaurant and sports bar venue. You certainly won't have any problem seeing the game you've got money riding on, because there are three walls of large, flat-screen TVs that practically give you a "ringside seat" to all the action.
