    Hands down the best place to watch footy in NYC. Non-denominational (but the crowd leans Arsenal and Liverpool). Always a good atmosphere and impeccable tap list.

    Start your day with a bacon, egg and cheese pie at Banter Bar, which has 24 beers on tap and a serious soccer obsession. The international crowd and flawlessly placed screens are reasons for a visit. Read more
