Tomorrow Hooters is opening in the 34th Street District in a prime location catty-corner from Madison Square Garden. I took a tour in December before the holidays, and let me tell you: it's spectacular.
Seriously, this restaurant is huge, the bar upstairs is ginormous, it has the biggest Hooters retail section in the world (probably not true, but hello Hooters tanks), and it is going to be your perfect wings and beer destination before and after games and shows at Madison Square Garden.

Hooters 34th Street also boasts a more streamlined and revamped Hooters decor. There is a fetching surf display, photos of Hooters girls past and present, and a history display on the second floor. But all-in-all, this new Hooters skews more Midtown restaurant than theme-chain.
