    In the Tribeca or Chelsea areas of NYC, you’ll find American Whiskey locations. Unlike other sports bars you’ve ever visited, this venue allows guests to slug whiskey inside of a three-story booze lodge. Fans love the main bar, which is leather and oak accented, and the mounted bison heads and 36 flatscreen TVs. Just be sure to bring your A-game because this place offers one to two-ounce shots of over 100 different types of domestic whiskey. Basketball fans will enjoy their NCAA specials, so don’t forget to inquire about those!
