Before the advent of sports bars, fans were forced to watch the reflection of games on giant spoons erected outside of stadiums or determine the winner based on overhead bird formations. Revel in advanced visual technology with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of bar chow and suds at Bar XII, located on East 34th Street.
Bar XII dishes out a smorgasbord of casual fare and intoxicating libations amidst glowing sports games flickering across 20 flat-screen tubes. Parched patrons can quaff one of Bar XII's 20+ draft or 25+ bottled beers ($4–10) or mixed drinks ($5–12) as they nosh on an array of cheeseburger, sloppy joe, or BBQ pulled-chicken sliders ($9 for three, $16 for six). Jumbo handmade tater tots, served with ketchup and applesauce ($7), and crunchy fried-pickle chips ($6) preface sizzling entrees of spicy chicken or steak fajitas cornered inside juice-nuzzling skillets ($14).
Professional sports stalwarts will never miss a touchdown pass, homerun, UFC smackdown, or badminton victory curtsy, since Bar XII dispenses Soundog Audio Systems—wireless handheld speakers to each table, which allow guests to hear the TV and change the channel from the comfort of their seat. Bar XII also hosts an array of events such as DJ nights, Wii showcases, Rock Out Wednesdays, and turtle race Tuesdays.
