We’ve also got new Open Bar & unlimited food packages just for you:

– Choose between three different open bar tiers (below)
– All tiers include the following unlimited food items: wings, nachos, BBQ sliders, hush puppies and tater tots.

We’re now the ‘Big Apple Browns Backers’ and moved to Brother Jimmy’s Murray Hill

Cleveland Browns Backers NYC Brother Jimmys Murray Hill
Effective immediately, we’re moving our location from Union Square to Brother Jimmy’s Murray Hill and re-branding as the Big Apple Browns Backers.

We’re still your home for all future Cleveland Browns, Cavs and Indians watch parties in New York City, but we’re getting a well deserved upgrade and face-lift.

We’re also the same folks running the show — Noah, Sean, Lexi and yes, the beloved Shot Penguin.

Formerly the Union Square Browns Backers, we are using this opportunity to better serve Cleveland sports fans in the Big Apple. Over the past 7 years, we’ve grown to become THE destination for all Cleveland sports in NYC, with crowds topping 700+ for Cavs and Indians playoff games. Thank you, the fans, for all your dedication and support.

Because of this, our loyal friends at Brother Jimmy’s Murray Hill have renovated their massive basement just for us to create a Cleveland safe-haven for our fans: a full bar with familiar bartenders, full-menu & dedicated wait-staff, 12 TVs plus 2 projectors, full audio, and Cleveland-only food & drink specials.

For Cavs and Indians playoff games, we’ll have the entire bar and dining areas, upstairs and downstairs.

What can you do to help?

1 – Tell your CLE friends that we’ve moved. The Union Square Brother Jimmy’s location is permanently closed to all business.

2 – Give us a positive review on Google. We really appreciate this one. If you feel so kind, give us a positive review on Facebook as well.

3- Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We won’t spam you with nonsense, but it’s the best way to stay informed about watch-party announcements and the occasional dank meme when applicable.

4 – Officially join our chapter. It’s 100% free and takes 5 mins to join through the Browns Backers Worldwide website.

We’ll also be hosting Cavs NYC watch parties at our new home Brother Jimmy’s Murray Hill for the big upcoming Cavs games; more details on that next week.

Thank you for making us the best Cavs bar in NYC and the country

Update January 3, 2018: We have moved our Cleveland club viewing location to Brother Jimmy’s Murray Hill, 181 Lexington Ave & E 31st, and re-branded as the Big Apple Browns Backers. The Brother Jimmy’s Union Square location is permanently closed.


The day after a loss is always difficult, but today is a little easier knowing the Cavs gave us a championship last year and for that we are eternally grateful.

Thank you to all the 500+ rabid fans who came to our NYC watch parties throughout the playoff run. You guys are awesome and the reason we have arguably the best atmosphere of any Cavs bar in the country.

Also, a HUGE thank you to all the staff at Brother Jimmy’s. You gave us a home away from Cleveland and made us feel welcomed.

Food was on point, as always. The playlists had everyone dancing and engaged even when the games weren’t going well (thank you Justin Bieber). Servers were top notch and always hustling. Bartenders kept us drunk and were always smiling even though they were crushed behind the bar. Bus boys busted their asses. Security managed the overflow (and kicked out the one jackass Golden State fan last night). And the Shot Penguin made sure no one went home without smelling like Jack Fire.

Now rest up and detox. You’ve got a few months before the Browns are back in September and hopefully Tribe playoff baseball in October.
