US Open Viewing Parties
By Fabiana Santana
No ticket? No problem! From picnics to pub grub, we’ve got you covered with a full list of locales to watch the US Open in New York City.
Madison Square Park (23rd and Broadway) is bringing out the big screens again. American Express presents US Open Live at Madison Square Park from September 6 to 9, 11am to 11pm. So bring a picnic basket and a blanket (or buy from a selection of vendors at the park) and get ready to snuggle it up!
The Sanctuary Hotel (132 West 47th Street between 6th & 7th Ave.) in Midtown Manhattan is offering tennis fans the perfect viewing experience at two venues in the hotel: Haven rooftop and Satori lobby bar & lounge. Eager to soak up the last days of summer outside? Head to the rooftop bar. Rather watch the match in an indoor tennis oasis? Sanctuary has it all from great views to a great viewing experience!
Whether you prefer to stay inside or head up to the rooftop, flat screen hi-def screens will welcome you and you’ll be able to indulge in their full dining menu and sip Open inspired cocktails like the US Open Honey Deuce (Grey Goose vodka, Fresh Lemonade and Splash of Chambord with Honey Dew Melon Balls) (it’s the same drink served exclusively at The Open!) and the Ace’s Sangria (Spanish Red Wine, Brandy, Apples, Grapes, Peaches, and Lemon-Lime soda).
If you’ve got to be perched on a bar stool when it comes to sports, Brickyard Gastropub (785 Ninth Ave.)is for you. Two happy hours match up with the matches and multiple flat screens are tuned into the Open so every seat in the house can get a good look.
All that sports action got you itching to get up and move? Whiskey Park (100 Central Park South) is making it possible for you to watch and play. A pool table, eight big screen TVs, outdoor seating with stunning views of Manhattan’s Central Park and a fully-stocked bar make Whiskey Park one of Manhattan’s most sports-friendly venues. Combine that with their Table Tennis Tournament for charity, and you’ve scratched your itch to watch, drink and play all at once. They’re partnering with the non-profit education focused group TopSpin to put on a ping-pong tourny on September 9th from 1pm-5pm with half of the proceeds from drink sales being donated to charity and every screen in the house tuned to the Open.
