    In the epic battle between East Coast vs. West Coast, Tupac vs. Biggie, New York vs. L.A., the rivalry continues (if not thrives!) with the NBA finals in the coming weeks (even though NY got booted). True, basketball may have unofficially replaced the national pastime (a.k.a. baseball), at least when it comes to vegging out at the edge of your seat, rooting on your favorite team. But who wants to celebrate (or mope) alone? We caught up with New York-based designer Nary Manivong of NAHM (his partner is Ally Hilfiger) to fill us in on the next best thing to court-side seats (sorry Knicks! Better luck next year!).

So, trust, Nary Manivong's picks are grown-up, upscale alternatives to that. You might even impress the boys and still have somewhere to set your bag down without it getting soaked in beer.

    Put on your best game face, invite some ladies to keep you company, and check out the classy sports bars on Nary's list.
