Pub in NYC (close to manhattan ideally) - open 24 hours

Here's the scenario:

My favourite AFL team, is playing round one of the season (which happens to be against their across town rivals) this Saturday at 4.30am NY time.

I'm looking for either a 24 hour open pub who will be showing it live (fox soccer plus will have it live) or maybe even a hotel with a 24 hour area or 24 hour bar who has the channel?

Basically, any way for me to see it! Most pubs have access to this fox channel so if a knowledgable NY'er could enlighten me on a pub who will be open at that hour of the morning, I'll do the rest of the legwork!

Thanks

Maybe email/call your hotel (or ask them in person if you're already there!) whether or not they can get access to the channel in your room?

There are no 24 hour bars in New York State; by state law, bars must close by 4 AM.

Why not look for a hotel that has in-room cable channels that carry the game you want to watch, and view it from your bed, rather than in a bar?

Your best bet may be to identify 24 hour diners with TV's, then find out if they get the soccer channel. This one is a Greek 24/7 diner with plasma TV's http://www.goodstuffdiner.com/ Don't know whether they will have the station you need.
