Park Avenue Country Club
381 Park Avenue South

A big game—whether it’s the NBA finals or your alma mater’s season opener—calls for a big screen, a few dozen equally rabid fans, and something more substantial than a bag of chips. At the Park Avenue Country Club, a choice of 50 TVs (including fourteen ten-footers), a booming sound system, and surprisingly excellent grub will make the taste of victory that much sweeter. Along with standards like wings and burgers, the menu includes gazpacho and lobster ravioli, and at least ten beers on draft. Bonus point: The odds are good that a local sports hero—like Michael Strahan,Marcus Camby, or Wayne Chrebet—will be in the house, promoting a charity or taking in a game.
