Tempest Bar is the best bar near MSG for Phish fans
For the second year in a row, Phish closes the year with a four-night run at Madison Square Garden.
To appreciate the Phish #YEMSG experience, read this tongue-in-cheek “Phish Fan Advisory” from Gothamist during 2010’s three-night run. For a nostalgic look, read Jon Pareles’ review of a show at MSG in 1996.
Phish shows at Madison Square Garden always means interesting days and nights at Tempest Bar.
Tempest Bar is the only bar near Madison Square Garden owned by a sole proprietor. He emigrated from Ireland many years ago with the dream of operating an authentic Irish tavern that looks like NYC, and not like an Irish pub you might find at an airport in Phoenix.
We have plenty of room for groups, lots of seating, a world-class darts area, a pool table, and a classic jukebox. We sell pints for just $4. Tempest Bar is now happy to provide a select bar menu from 12 noon to 4am everyday.
We host the best Phish after parties, with our dance floor rocking till we close at 4 am each night.
Want to enjoy a real NYC tavern during the four-night run of Phish? Come by Tempest Bar NYC and party with your fellow Phans!
