Jersey City Spots to Eat Wings + Watch Football

Written by:

It’s hard to see summer go, but the prospect of a fall filled with football Sunday Fundays and sweater weather can get us through the agony of putting away our beach chairs. Whether you’re an avid football fan or not, there’s just something about a good bar with football and a plate of wings, so we’ve compiled a list of some go-to spots in downtown Jersey City for some Sunday Funday activities: wings, beer, and football. Here is a list of Jersey City spots to watch football and eat wings:


White Star Bar {230 Brunswick Street + 179 Warren Street}

Something about White Star just feels like home. It’s your quintessential corner bar that actually has great food. Even though WS is famous for its burgers, the wings are pretty j’amaze as well. They’re crispy and lightly sauced with just the right amount of spice. There’s ample TV’s but not a ton of seats at the bar so know you may have to settle for a table by the bar.

Corkscrew Bar + Grill {61 Congress Street}

At Corkscrew, not only is the draft list impressive, but one can also enjoy a dozen or a half dozen wings with a variety of sauces including BBQ, buffalo, Cajun dry rub, honey mustard, sweet + spicy, teriyaki, or XXX spicy. The bar is open until 2:00AM, in the event your Sunday Funday turns into an all-night affair.

Iron Monkey {99 Greene Street}

Catch a local game paired with some good ol’ classic buffalo wings and beer at Iron Monkey. An entire “beer bible” and ½ off on growlers from 2:00PM-5:00PM on Sundays will make you stay awhile.

Another classic sports bar with plenty of TVs, O’Hara’s wings are on the wet side with a lot of sauce and a good amount of spice. They’ve got the biggest selection of sauces we’ve seen including a mango BBQ and fra diablo that you’ll be dying to try this football season.

Third Base Sports Cafe {116 Newark Avenue}

Right off the Grove Street station, this classic sports bar is a fun place to meet friends from the PATH easily. The wings come in Asian or Buffalo and seriously do not disappoint.

Hudson Hall {364 Marin Boulevard, Jersey City}

This beer hall and smokehouse boasts a beer-heavy drink list, slabs of ribs and BBQ, and pretzels {+ Haus Wings, of course}. The team behind local favorites like Pilsener Haus in Hoboken and Wurstbar in JC created Hudson Hall in 2016 and definitely did not disappoint. It’s got a unique vibe and is HUGE, which is perfect for a large group.

Zeppelin Hall {88 Liberty View Drive}

This beer hall can actually be a great spot to watch a game and is another spot made for when you have a large group. The wings are hand-breaded and fried crispy or smoked. Choose from a variety of sauce choices including buffalo, BBQ, chipotle, honey mustard, lemon pepper, garlic parmesan, and sweet chili — you could try a different sauce every Sunday.

Brightside Tavern {141 Brightside Street}

This is your go-to spot with a large group. With 20 TVs in 3 rooms, it’s guaranteed you’ll be able to watch your team. The buffalo wings fall off the bone with the right amount of sauce to make them juuuust spicy enough that your lips are tingling. They also have BBQ, teriyaki, and garlic parmesan sauces that we’re loving.

We know that you already know how j’amaze Left Bank’s burgers are, but Left Bank also has delish wings and beers. Try the wings for the early afternoon game, get that burger for the night game, and wash it all down with some delicious brews.
