This surprisingly laid-back Center City Irish pub is a lot of things to a lot of people. Young professionals belly up at happy hour, club kids come to dance on the weekends and everybody shows up for soccer. More than just a World Cup bar—although the crowds for that are enormous—Fado makes TV time for “the beautiful game” in all of its iterations: English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, MLS and more.
Short of going to a stadium, there’s no better way to catch a big local game than at one of Philly’s sports bars. Philadelphia fans flock to these venues on game day to catch their favorite teams on huge TV screens and with an unlimited supply of beer and pub grub—like pretzels and the best Philly cheesesteak in Philadelphia.

If you’re still hungry after the game, head out for a slice of the best pizza in Philadelphia or celebrate a big win at one of the nearby Philadelphia nightclubs.
