Scores Sports Bar Scores First NYC Location

Lee & Associates NYC represented the Riese Organization in a new 15-year lease with Scores Sports Bar at 416 Eighth Ave. located directly beside Madison Square Garden and across from the new Moynihan Train Hall. The lease is for a three-floor, 9,000-square-foot space and Scores Sports Bar will move in immediately. It’s the first New York City location for Scores Sports Bar. 

Brad Schwarz and James Ficelman from Lee & Associates NYC represented the landlord, Riese Organization, and Spencer Planit from Winick Realty represented Scores Sports Bar. 

“We’re excited to have worked with Scores Sports Bar and Winick Realty to secure their first location in NYC,” said Schwarz. “416 Eighth Ave. is in a prime corner restaurant location, with amazing branding potential, just steps from Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, and Moynihan Train Hall.”
