Roebling Inn
In 2010, the Roebling Inn took the Liverpool Supporters’ Club of New York under its wing, so the soccer culture at this Brooklyn Heights drinkery is strong. If you’re not a Liverpool fan, not to worry, the Euros and international games make friends of all fans (unless you’re just rooting for Cristiano Ronaldo—not cool). 97 Atlantic Avenue

Atlantic Avenue ChipShop
Like their location in Park Slope, Chip Shop holds on to their claim that they will free whatever your grease-batter-crunchy-golden-goodness loving hands carry into their store. The best part about this Chip Shop, though: it’s a bar! With booze! With an assembly of soccer fans! With fried food! This Chip Shop keeps pretty close company with a trifecta of Atlantic Ave soccer bars including Roebling Inn and Floyd NY, so look forward to streets full of soccer revelers outside. 129 Atlantic Avenue

Black Horse Pub
They call their fries ‘chips’ and they serve Bangers n’ Mash, so you know Black Horse is British enough to be an authoritative source for your soccer needs. They’ll have all their 8 televisions firing full blast, and this bar always draws an energetic crowd of mixed soccer fans. Don’t miss the $4 drink specials! 5th Ave and 16th St.

200 Fifth
There are enough television screens suspended over the bar and booths at 200 Fifth that you will not be able to look in any direction without getting a close up of Wayne Rooney’s less-than-appealing mug as England collapse yet again. The bar will kindly open its doors early for all Euro matches, and broadcast on every screen in the bar (uncountable) including their projector screen. And, hey, their happy hour starts just as the afternoon games finish, how convenient is that? 200 5th Avenue

Der Schwarze K├Âlner
Just around the corner from BAM, this is a great place to enjoy large, big, or huge-sized German beers while sharing a long table with friendly strangers. Many will be cheering Germany as they play on the big screen projector in the middle of the bar, but if that’s not your thing, their outdoor section is worth a visit for the beautiful scenery and people-watching. 710 Fulton Street
