PUB WEEK: Where to watch in NYC - The Red Lion

The Red Lion
151 Bleecker St. (Thompson St.)
New York, NY.

The Red Lion has a lot going for it. The staff is friendly and very accommodating to any and all football fans. Whether it's your first time at the pub or you're a regular, you'll be treated as if you own the place. During soccer matches most of the patrons of the Red Lion are ex-pats, giving the pub an authentic British feel. However the atmosphere doesn't make American fans feel out of place like some Irish and English pubs around the city. I suggest going to the Red Lion for an early EPL match and enjoying the full English breakfast that is offered. I have also been there for a weekday afternoon match and the BBQ chicken wrap was very good. If you’re looking for a great place to watch a match, have some food and get a few buy-backs on your Guinness, then the Red Lion might be your kind of place.
