Great Local Sports Bar 3/8/2010

Cheap drinks and not too crowded. Came here for Sunday Football for 49ers and it was a great vibe! Everybody was cheering and drinking. They let you BYOF (Bring your own FOOD!). How great is that?!!?! They also just recently renovated the place up and expanded the space to accommodate more people. They also play other games such as baseball, and college basketball. Pros: Cheap Drinks, BYOF more

Good spot, could be better 9/16/2009

I've been here a number of times and my overall feel for the place is that it is just not a ""cool"" place. I know that may sound kind of high schoolish, but that's the best way to describe it.\r \r They do have a number of flat screen t.v.'s and you can watch almost all of the games that are on. The drinks are also reasonably priced. That's the upside.\r \r Adding to the uncool factor is that the manager is on premise a lot and always makes his presence known - kind of like your older brother who is kind of a tool and kind of messes w you and your friends?\r \r Pros: Cheapish Drinks, Many flat screen t.v.'s Cons: Police State more

Great hangout place to watch sports 7/26/2009

I discovered this place by accident and fell in love with it. Has everything I look for in a bar... darts , pool, tons for bigscreens, great music, cheap drinks Pros: girls, cheap drinks, great music, great spot more

Finnerty's is dead. Long live Finnerty's 5/14/2009

The bar recently changed owners and the new ownership seems to be attemping to take it in another direction. \r \r The prices went up slightly and the mixed drinks no longer come in pint glasses. The search feature is no longer available on the digital juke box and the music is not as loud as it once was. They appear to be attempting to make it a more ""climate controlled"" environment. Interpret that as you will. \r \r Used to be a great place to go get hammered and rock out. Now it is a good place to go watch a game as the put in many more flat screen tvs.\r \r Definitely not the old Finnerty's. It remains to be seen if this is a good or bad thing Pros: More TVs Cons: More TVs more

Cheap Drinks - Economy Super Saver 11/14/2008

The times are hard right now so I highly recommend this bar. Big fan on the cheap prices and this goes above and beyond. PBR tall boys and a shot of whiskey for $6.00. Love it. I heard about the bar from a friend who works with me. He said great pints of Bud on tues for $2.00, but when I saw the PBR special everyday I was sold. Excellent jukebox. Love the bartender and enjoy playing pool. This place doesn't hurt my wallet. more

Tuesday's are my night. 9/9/2008

just moved back to New York about a month ago and have been making stops at the local spots. I stopped by Finnertys a few times but not on a tuesday. I just went with a couple of friends with some food and tuesday nights are a great night. $2.00 pints of Bud and other beers. They also have a pool table and fooseball table which is my game. The beer was cheap and cold and there was enough left for a nice tip for the bartender who was a excellent gal. So if you want a place to just have fun and enjoy this is it. more

Love this BAR, its drinks, staff and games! 8/18/2008

This is the most unpretentious, fun, and chill bar I know in the city (lived here for six years so far). First things first, the drink are cheap and big. Mixed drinks come in pint glasses, I don't know anywhere else that does that. On many nights the bartenders or other staff will buy me a shot! I always leave drunk and happy ;)\r \r If you are in the mood for pool, darts, buckhunter (I didn't even know I liked arcade games till I played this one), foosball, watching the game or just chatting with friends, this is a great place. I often meet my friends here with the plan to start drinking and go somewhere else, but we never leave! Sometimes we'll venture out, but we always end up back at Fins! It's a nice weekday place to bring pizza or order delivery and accompany it with cheap beer. A pizza from the new Artichoke across 2nd ave on 14th is a match made in heaven with a pitcher of beer and good company. The weekends can get busy and loud during peak hours, but you just have to deal...\r \r Lastly, the staff is friendly accommodating and cute! Being a girl, I've never been treated so well by female bartenders who care just as much about me as other patrons. The doormen are hilarious and always have their eye out for things going wrong, and some of them are hot!\r \r All in all, this is a great chill place to hang out, drink and have fun! Pros: big drinks, fun people, pool and games Cons: spend too much time here more

DOLLAR MUGS EVERYDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8/13/2008

I work in the east village which we all know has a thousand bars. How about one with great personality. I found it. Was walking up 2nd ave and saw the most beautiful sign. $1.00 mugs everyday from 5pm to 8pm. It was a hot one out there so I stopped in. The dollar mugs was the bonus but there are fabulous bartenders with great personalities. I love to play pool and there was the table. The bar is roomy and the atmosphere is relaxing. I now bring my co-workers every friday to start the weekend out. So i recommend this place highly. more

Fun Times !!!! 6/13/2008

Now here's a place to go for AWESOME drinks for a great price and a buzz you will or wont remember!\r Thats up to you!!!!Also a good place for beer lovers.Nothing like a bottle of beer straight out the ICE. Love the\r doormen who might suddenly jump on the bar and start dancing.......(sometimes the shirts come off...).\r The bartenders are for the most part cool and if you feel like having a conversation they are there for you but also a great place if you just want to sit and have a quiet drink.The staff makes sure you wont be disturbed by anyone.If you feel like playing darts,pool,boardgames etc.Finnerty's is a Fantastic place for that, plenty to choose from!\r So I say go experience the place for yourself and HAVE FUN! more

Things have changed for the better!!!!!!!!! 4/9/2008

I was a regular at the old location on 3rd avenue and have recently moved to 2nd avenue and to my surprise so did Finnerty's. It used to be a great NYU hangout but now it is NYU plus an older age group. Great place to meet new people. Still the very relaxed fun. With a few great additions like a pool table and the best photo booth. I have become the fan of the PBR tall boys. The bartenders are the best . I am so glad to be back in town and have Finnertys at my door step. Check it out. You will love it!!!!!!!!! more

great beer selection/good fun/great music 9/14/2007

Just sit back and relax here. The staff is great. The beers are priced right and a wide selection. We played pool and foose ball for a $1.00. We only were having a beer and stayed all night. This is our new place and we love it. I have come to love the PBR tall boys with a shot of whiskey. Good Special!!! Thanks Finnerty's. You got my heart and liver. more

Thank God I found you again!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3/15/2007

Been out of the area and to my surprise my favorite bar moved from third ave to second ave . But thank God nothing has changed. That means great low prices and excellent staff and a little Italian owner. But one thing that changed is the space. Now I can play pool and foose ball. More fun. Thanks for going bigger. more

Best Pints Special In Town!!!!!!!!! 11/24/2006

Whoever stops here will not want to leave. $2.00 Pints of Bud and Bud Light from opening till closing. I brought a bunch of friends and we came all the way from the west side uptown. We are big fooseball players and heard about this bar. The staff are really fun. The door guys are very friendly. This is our new place to go on the weekends. So look out eastside the westside is moving in!!!!!!!!!!!! more

Pint Glass Heaven 9/27/2006

Thats what my girlfriend said. $1.00 Pints of Bud and Bud light Thursday night from 10pm till 1am. We are going this week. And I ordered a stoli blueberry and soda and that came in a pint. That is Heaven. Not to mention the foose ball table and very friendly bartenders. This one is a keeper for us. Thanks more

Good times, good friends, good drinks in pint glasses 8/3/2006

What more can I say the mixed drinks come in pint glasses. FInnerty's brings out the best in all of us. The bartenders are so much fun, the crowd is always bustling. The vibe is just let's have fun. My friends and I make it a destination every time we have a night out. more

THANKS FOR COMING BACK!!!!!!!!!!! 7/19/2006

Thank God the home of the $2.00 pint is back. Found out through word of mouth and beer. It's like being home in my castle but a bigger one. Me and my gal pals are so addicted to the hunting machine. The PBR and WHISKEY Special is the best. Please don't leave again. Pros: roomy, friendly, fun more

Fantasy Land For All 5/17/2006

You walk in and you can play pool, foose ball, darts and 2 great video games and watch TV. And the pints are only $2.00 all day and all night. This place is a great bar. there is room for everyone. Thanks Finnerty's for being there. Pros: inexpensive, great games, good music more

Anyone for bingo!!! 5/24/2005

my friends and I just fell on this great bar on a wednesday a few weeks ago. It was my girlfriends birthday and we went in when we saw signs for wednesday night bingo. We had a blast. they gave out prizes and free drinks for every round of bingo won and at the end they gave out restaurant gift certificates to the full card winner. we stayed after to have a few more drinks and to our surprise the pints were only $2.00 dollars. We went back this past weekend. We found a new home. Thanks Finnerty's!!! Pros: cheap prices, friendly bartender, excellent jukebox more
