Atwood is a bar in Midtown East that has sports on TV, but it’s not the kind of spot where a guy in a Jets jersey stands on his chair when they score in the first quarter, and is sleeping in a booth with wing sauce on his cheeks by halftime. You can sit at the communal table by the entrance with a group and drink house cocktails, or sit in one of the cool wrought-iron stools at the bar and watch sports on the various flat screens. The ground floor and the upstairs area, which they open during Happy Hour, have doors that fully open when it’s nice out.
