Actually there is another place I looked this up before... this was from a different forum, and I think the Riviera Cafe is the first place you should call, they've played Pats games before.
Hey Patriot fans... I found a great website called "Red Sox Connection" It lists 8 Red Sox bars in NYC... I figured these bars would also be a good place to catch a Pats game on Sunday... Check it out... http://www.redsoxconne...
Where to Watch the Red Sox on the Road
The bars, restaurants, and fan clubs of Red Sox Nation...
New York City
The Riviera Cafe & Sports Bar
225 West 4th Street @ 7th Avenue
A sports bar in Greenwich Village which has gained a reputation as a haven for Red Sox fans.
337 3rd Ave. (@ 25th St)
An Irish pub with Red Sox memorabilia displayed in the bar, the Hairy Monk shows all Red Sox games on their plasma screens and 8 foot projection screen. Best of all, the bar staff of Leanne, Pete & Ivan are not Yankees fans.
355 Amsterdam Ave. (@ 77th St)
They have good pub food, Harpoon on draft, a pool table and neighborhood Sox fans. The owner is from Boston, and Red Sox games are always on the flat screen behind the bar.
Harrison's is temporarily closed. They are moving to a new location at 143 Chambers Street but aren't reopening until October 1st.
Lion's Head Tavern
995 Amsterdam Ave. (@ 109th St)
Located in the Morningside Heights area near Columbia University. Some people are calling this place Riviera Cafe north, but with cheaper beer.
1701 Second Ave (@ 88th St.)
Located in the upper east side of Manhattan, this bar is owned by a Boston College grad and has Boston bartenders working the bar. All Red Sox games are shown, and there are bar specials for all of the games. In case you're wondering, there's no connection to the New Orleans bar of the same name.
359 Bowery (@ 4th St.)
It's not the biggest Sox hangout in New York, but the place is clean, the food is very good and there is lots of room to watch the game and get food. More Sox fans hang out at this East Village bar than Yankees fans, and the atmosphere is classier than any of the other Red Sox hangouts.
219 2nd Avenue (between 13th & 14th Street)
Jim McGuire, the bartender who started the Red Sox following at the Riviera Cafe, has opened his own bar in the East Village, which has become famous for "Play-by-Play Tuesdays." Pairs of Red Sox fans can sign up to do their own commentary, which is broadcast throughout the bar every Tuesday night that Boston has a road game.
43 East 7th St. (between 2nd & Cooper Square)
This neighborhood pub opened in the summer of 2005 to the delight of local Red Sox fans. They have bartenders from Boston that are VERY passionate about the Sox and proudly show all available Red Sox games (with sound) that appear on NESN or the MLB Package. As an added bonus, Standings has free pizza every Friday night at 8 PM during the baseball season.
