I have lived around Gramercy and Murray Hill for over 3 years now. I have been hanging out in this area for many years prior to moving here and I have really missed out on what I believe to be the best deal in NYC! The Bravest has $2.50 Bud Lights all the time! That is right folks, it might actually be cheaper to have 6 beers at the bar, then going to your local bodega for a 6 pack. But it does not end there. The Bravest takes it up a notch up for happy hour. Seven days a week, you can snag a $2 beer from 4pm – 7pm. On my visit they were offering any draft beer at this price. Now that I have gone over the beer special, there is more to add. They have a happy hour menu, which gives up 10 wings for $4 and few other reasonably priced options including nachos and tacos.
The ambiance might not be for all, especially if you are one who prefers the typical Murray Hill sports bar. I am not hating on the Murray Hill bars, but if you prefer a loud environment, shoulder to shoulder with fans yelling over each play, stay away! The Bravest is a no frills bar. I would describe it s a hole in the wall, with its tight interior, which to my surprise was not packed on my football Sunday visit. They have many screens and had every game showing. The staff is extremely friendly. The bartender even made sure to address us by our name as we gave him a credit card to open the tab.
In my opinion this has to be one of the best bars I have come across in NYC. It is a perfect spot to sit down watch football on a Sunday, have good affordable beers, eat some wings and enjoy your team. If you have come across a bar you believe provides the optimal football viewing experience, please share, I am always open to suggestions.
