Let The Games Begin! Inside Rocco's, Downtown's New Sporty Hang

    After four years of development, and nine months of sitting around ready to go (held up by Con Edison & SLA complications), Rocco's Sports & Recreation is finally open for business.

    The newest spot from The Garret Group (Bandits, The Garret, Borrachito), Rocco's is NoHo's newest hit. And like, of course it is. 

    Perched on West Third just off Broadway, the sporty hang pairs playfully elevated interiors with fan favorite bar basics.

    Vintage memorabilia covers the walls, a custom Jumbotron takes center stage screening the latest games, an arcade-style pop-a-shot basketball game in the corner begs to be played.

    And the menu? 

    Expect everything from a Vegetarian Philly Cheesesteak, Brisket Burger, Fried Fish Sandwich and Chargrilled BBQ Oysters to Beer Can Half Chicken, Smoked Rack of Ribs and a Football Helmet Ice Cream Sundae.

    So, see you there to watch the next big game match race thing event?
