When there are no games to watch, most sports bars feel like santa’s workshop in July, but with less eggnog and more Fireball. Even though Bronx Ale House is a good spot to watch games - it has lots of TVs and plenty of seating - but it’s just as pleasant when the TVs are off. That’s because this big bar in Kingsbridge has a very good beer selection, and bar food - like a burger topped with smoked bacon and IPA onion jam - that make it worth seeking out for lunch or dinner anytime.
