Girders Garden

A multi-floored sports bar that’s about more than just footie and rugby

Time Out Says

When you think of bars in JBR, you’d be forgiven for not knowing where to begin nowadays. Among the swathes of new and exciting openings in recent months stands this relatively old kid on the block.

Sitting opposite the perennially popular Tr!beca Kitchen + Bar at the JA Ocean View Hotel, warning people away yet inciting intrigue with its industrial (and entirely self-titled) exterior, sits Girders.

Upon arrival at this JBR sports bar (which, the more we think about it, is something of a rarity), our first impression is underwhelming – on the face of things there’s not much more to it than a square room, a corner bar and a bunch of TV screens. However, after discovering the range of beverages available during a fairly decent happy hour, our waiter ushers us away from a desolate and eerily quiet interior to a more densely populated, upstairs terrace.

And it’s really cool. There’s an open barbecue pit, a huge screen, an outside bar, long benches and a talented singer/guitarist providing a chilled-out ambience.

There are definitely worse places to spend an evening, and we imagine it’s great for kick-off.

The bottom line
A relaxed spot for live music and sport.
