With Finnerty’s closed, Plug Uglies is now THE Golden State Warriors bar in New York City

Pre-pandemic, Finnerty’s was the unofficial Golden State Warriors Bar in New York City — at least in Manhattan. The bar definitely had a local vibe and would begin to fill up an hour or two before big games. It wasn’t just for the Warriors, but would bring Bay Area sports fans for 49ers and Giants games, too.

Unfortunately Finnerty’s bar has permanently closed, so where do Golden State Warriors fans that live in NYC go to watch Dubs games with other fans? That’s a question that’s been asked several times over on Reddit without many solid answers.

Plug Uglies is the GSW Bar in NYC?

One name that does pop up a couple times is Plug Uglies located in Gramercy. Owned by the same people that ran Finnerty’s, it seems like this bar is the way to go. The bar’s website is pretty bare bones and doesn’t give any hints that it’s a Warriors bar. They do link off to their social media and going by their Instagram and Twitter, there’s definitely a Golden State presence. Here’s their Instagram:

Looking good, but maybe the social media person favors the Warriors? I’d like some more proof that Plug Uglies is the GSW NYC bar of choice. So we went to their Twitter and their most recent tweet on Plug Uglies’ Twitter account shows a bunch of Golden State fans celebrating a Steph Curry three pointer during the 2022 NBA Finals:

That all but confirms that at least Plug Uglies’ social media person is a Golden State Warriors fan and that’s good enough for me. Though reviews say that Plug Uglies doesn’t have the same vibe – according to redditors at least — it looks like Plug Uglies brings in Golden State fans for the NBA Playoffs and NBA Finals. We’ll see you there. Go DUBS!
