19. The Ainsworth

Neighborhood: Chelsea
Address: 122 West 26th St.

Sporty and classy are pretty far apart on the descriptive spectrum. Why then, Ainsworth, would you try to combine the two to create this sad, sad establishment: the upscale sports bar?

The convergence of chandeliers and plasma screens draws a crowd of young professionals who have convinced themselves their days of douchebaggery are behind them. They're wrong. It's still there, lurking underneath the ill-fitting suits, just like the Ainsworth's sports bar heart is somewhere underneath all of that fancy exposed wood. Stop fronting.
