Gantry Bar & Kitchen Gears Up for Football Season, Aims to be Go-To Sports Bar in Hunters Point

Aug. 18, 2017 Sponsored Story

Football season is back, and Gantry Bar & Kitchen is pulling out all the stops to be the go-to sports bar in Long Island City.

“We ordered the NFL Ticket package to show games every Sunday, Monday and Thursday, including preseason games,” said co-owner Paula Griffin.

The gastropub which opened in February of last year, features four HDTVs and a projector to air each game.

“We will be offering a rotating beer special for the duration of every Monday game for $6 a glass,” Griffin said. “We’ll also be giving out a free order of wings to whoever kicks the keg.”

Every Monday and Thursday, the bar will also offer $1 wings with a minimum of 8 per order, and $20 pitchers of Radeberger, Shock Top and their rotating beer special.

Beyond American football, Gantry Bar & Kitchen will also be airing all English Premier League soccer games, as well as La Liga Soccer and European tournaments.

The bar will still be offering its daily happy hour of $7 cocktails, $6 draft beers and $20 buckets from noon to 7:00 pm every Monday to Friday

For afternoon games, Gantry Bar & Kitchen will also have a daily lunch special available from noon to 4:00 pm.

“Since opening, we have gotten a lot of feedback from regulars in regards to our food menu, so we’ve added vegetarian options such as vegetarian tacos, black bean burgers, and hearty salads,” Griffin said.

The bar/restaurant’s full menu, including daily drink, lunch and weekend brunch specials, can be found below.

actual football fan.

a sports bar needs to have enough TVs to show every game at one time on a Sunday. That’s more than 4 TVs and a projector, even towards the end of the season. It also needs comfortable seating and good bar food, and ideally, have several bathroom stalls. Sadly – this place has none of that.

Hoping some of the more recent closures offer up an opportunity for a real sports bar to open in the area.

Huh 3

Totally agree AFF. This is not the place to watch a game. Not sure I can come up with a reason to go here.


There’s already enough football bars. How is this “The Greatest City in the World” when I can’t even find a bar to watch bowling tournaments in?!


Only 4 tv’s…. If you want to be the go to pub. Gotta get some more tv’s for sunday. Monday is ok, Thursday night games typically stink.
