• 10 Spots for Wings + Football in Jersey City

    No one is ever happy 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. And in September, you’re not as concerned with your beach bod so now you can feel way less guilty about spending your weekend drinking beers and eating wings. 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 the 10 go-to spots in Jersey City for everyone’s favorite Sunday activities: wings, beer, and football.

    White Star Bar {230 Brunswick St. + 179 Warren St.}


    Something about White Star just feels like home. It’s your quintessential corner bar that actually has great food. Even though they’re famous for their burgers, the wings are pretty perfect. 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 St.}

    This heights spot is a classic neighborhood haunt. You’ll feel a little like everyone knows each other walking in but the wings and draft list will make you feel right at home. This is a wing place where you can get 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. They’re open until 2AM, incase your Sunday Funday turns into an all night affair. You’ll want to bring a crew and try every sauce.

    Iron Monkey {99 Greene St.}

    This is your spot when you want to sit at the bar, chill with some local football, have a beer, and a plate of wings. There aren’t as many TVs here, so you’ll need to be watching a local game, and the wings only come classic, but they make up in variety with their beer selection. An entire “beer bible” and ½ off on growlers from 2-5PM on Sundays will make you stay a while.

    O’Hara’s Downtown {171 First St.}


    Another classic sports bar with plenty of TVs. Their 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.

    PJ Ryan’s Squared {4 Path Plaza}

    A corner Irish pub with a good amount of TVs. The Frank’s hot sauce wings are on the mild side and cooked a little crispier than the fall off the bone type. This place also doubles as a soccer bar, so you could literally spend your whole Sunday here.

    Third Base Sports Cafe {116 Newark Ave.}

    Right off the Grove Street station, this is your spot if you’re meeting people coming from the PATH. This place is a classic sports bar. The wings come in Asian or Buffalo and seriously do not disappoint.

    Zeppelin Hall {88 Liberty View Dr.}


    This beer hall can actually be a great spot to watch a game and is the perfect spot for when you have a large group. The wings are hand breaded and fried crispy or smoked. This is another spot where you have 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 St.}

    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 of 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.

    Left Bank Burger Bar {194 Newark Ave.}

    We know that you already know how great Left Bank’s burgers are, but Left Bank also has great wings and beers. Try the wings for the game at 1pm, get that burger for the night game, and wash it all down with some delicious brews.

    Hopscotch {286 Washington St.}

    This Belgian-inspired spot has 40 beers on tap, 40 scotches to choose from, and some pretty famous wings with a recipe reigning from Louisville. You’ll notice “Reggie’s from da Ville” on the menu. Reggie is a cook that’s been with the restaurant since it opened. We love that some of these wings are put on the grill and we think your tastebuds will too. The sauce options get unique here, which we like, including traditional, fire, honey-sesame, grilled BBQ, and grilled jerk.
