Where We Watch says: The topline on Jack Demsey's website is simple: Manhattan's No. 1 Celtic supporter club. It was backed to the gills for the 2009 Champions League Final - but before you assume this is some "dank" midtown joint - this bar is deceptively spacious. With over a dozen tvs throughout the bar, all domestic and international sports packages and a large selection of brews and booze, Jack Demsey's is a true find in the generic-ness of midtown. If you are not of our sports-watching brethren (and if that's the case, why are you on this site?) Jack's is a welcome pregame to MSG's concert nights and a great place to begin late night. If late night goes well, you may be in the hood just in time for the Irish breakfast they offer all day long. As a ps - this bar's website offers a new year's countdown. IT'S JUNE. You cannot go wrong.
