Where to Watch Euro 2012
Bars are breaking out the brunch menus—and big screens—for the epic soccer tournament.
Poland and Ukraine are co-hosting Euro 2012, but for those who can’t hop the pond plenty of Seattle spots are broadcasting the action.
St. Andrews Bar and Grill
The Greenlake joint unveils its 150-person annex on June 8, just in time for the 9am match between Poland and Greece. Four new HDTVs and a 130-inch HD projection screen will broadcast all games live, with replays showing in the evening. Bonus: The full breakfast bill.
Attention francophiles: This French hang will offer a special crepe menu for the France v. England match on Monday, June 11. From 8:30–11:00, soccer, er, football fans can also enjoy free popcorn and $3.50 pints of Kronenbourg.
Take your pick between chicken waffle sliders, biscuits and gravy, and eggs benedict while watching weekend games—either on the big screen in back or on the 120-inch display up front.
The Attic Alehouse and Eatery
Doors open at 8:45 on June 8 to kick off (pun intended) the festivities. A limited breakfast menu will be offered till 11 for all early matches, and the bar is readily stocked with Carlsberg, the official tournament sponsor.
The Ballard bar, home to some 16 flat screens, gets going early for any morning games between June 8–15. Before 12:30, fans can order breakfast and $3 pints (or a more AM-friendly Bloody Mary for $5).
Market Arms and George and Dragon Pub
The sister pubs will air all matches as they unfold and replay them in the evenings—some showings conveniently falling during the 3 to 6 weekday happy hour. Call ahead to see what’s playing when.
