Premier League Soccer Breakfast

Where's the best place in the city to watch Premier League Soccer and have a Saturday morning breakfast?

  1. Replying so I can get a recommendation too. Good topic. Hope someone has a tip.

    1. I have always had good luck at Tir na Nog by Penn Station, they have pretty much all of the Premiership games (and the championship I think, along with Rugby, Gaelic football, etc.) and their Irish Breakfast and corned beef hash are both quite good not to mention that Bernie the barman is a great guy. Only a couple of big TVs and 3 or 4 smaller ones at the bar, so it is not a Nevada Smith's like experience.

      1. A few bars on 3rd ave between 23rd and 28th definetly show it.

        Call the Madhatter and there is another one right across
        The street that shows it.

        365 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10016

        Mad Hatter
        360 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10016

          Confirming this. Also several pubs in the E. 30s on 3rd Ave. show PL soccer games, including Patrick Kavanagh's. Patrick Kavanagh's serves a passable Irish breakfast. Just wander that stretch and you'll probably find something. Be forewarned that for some popular games (where some patrons show up and nurse a beer for hours in a crowded room), some pubs will charge you an admissions fee of something like $5 to $10.

          A little further west, O'Reilly's Pub on W. 31st also broadcasts games, but I've never personally been in the a.m.

            The bar right across the street is McCormack's. Both places serve food, but McCormack's has a more traditional irish pub menu, and mad hatter is closer to American Sports Bar menu. They're both good, but my personal preference is McCormack's.

          2. For a fellow Spurs fan, Lunasa on 1st Avenue and 7 Street is a solid bet. The Guinness is solid and the Irish breakfast stays with you for the rest of the day - what with black and white pudding, sausages, bacon and all the other usual suspects.

            126 1st Ave, New York, NY 10003
