The past couple of weeks have been pretty stellar for soccer fans.
Two massive soccer tournaments, the Copa America and the UEFA European Championship, overlapped in June, to the delight of many jersey-wearing Washingtonians.
Sadly, the fútbal frenzy is nearly over. The Euro Cup championship match between Portugal and France is happening this Sunday at 3 p.m. Where’s the best place in the District to watch and grab a pint? FamousDC’s got the list.
1. Lucky Bar
1221 Connecticut Ave. NW
This Dupont establishment has three big screens and 22 TVs for your viewing pleasure. They’ve also got some delicious beer and house cocktails for when the game is getting too close for comfort.
1355 H St. NE
This German beer garden has two spacious floors and a roof-deck. They’ll be showing the game and offering up more than 15 different types of beer.
3. The Airedale
3605 14th St. NW
This bar is a big fan of soccer, and draws in big, cheering crowds. Head over there for $10 pitchers of Eggenberg Pils and an assortment of pub fare.
4. Sauf Haus
1216 18th St. NW
This authentic beer garden has three different bars and tons of German lager to sip while watching the game. Make sure to dress up, because they’ve been known to offer specials to those donning their team’s attire.
1206 H St. NE
This British pub takes its football very seriously. This Sunday, they’ve got $5 pints of Carlsberg and Guinness, free soccer-themed gifts, and tons of food specials. Also, if you call football “soccer,” the British owners say they reserve the right to kick you out of the pub.
