Beer and footy on the big screen are back!
The long-awaited Euros are here for the summer and it’s time to hit up the pubs and enjoy the rowdy atmosphere once again. It has been a while! With the sun shining and newfound freedom, things are getting booked up ASAP, however, we’re here to lend a hand in planning your football outings. Check out our round-up of the best places to watch the Euros in Liverpool which are taking place over the months of June and July.
One of the latest bars to open in Liverpool, Boom: Battle Bar in St Johns Shopping Centre is certainly not missing out on the footy fun. With three huge screens, beer on tap and food such as burgers, wings and hot dogs from Icon, it’s the place to be for the coverage of the Euros. And even if the score may not be what you’re looking for, you can always get stuck into a good game of beer pong, crazy golf, darts, pool or shuffleboard, or even blow off some steam with axe-throwing (but do take care!). You can either book your table to watch the footy via their website or by sending them a DM on Instagram.
Boom: Battle Bar, 101-110 St Georges Way, L1 1LU
Camp and Furnace on Greenland Street will be showing all of England’s group matches and the final on the big screen. You’ll need to book your place but the bonus of forward planning is your booking will include free drinks and you can choose from either a pint of beer or cider, a small house wine, a single house spirit and mixer or any soft drink. Camp and Furnace is also launching their Indoor Urban Beer Garden where you’ll find two indoor bars as well as plenty of beer, bratwurst, steins and pretzels.
Camp and Furnace, 67 Greenland Street, L1 0BY
One of the city’s thriving venues, the Liverpool Bierkeller frequently screens live sports – with multiple screens and projector screens, plus a massive LED superscreen, to accommodate footy fans. Bookings are now open for the rest of the Euros, too, so you can snap up a table ready for the matches. Enjoy cold beers, steins and pitchers, as well as 8-pint beer towers, stein cocktails and more.
Bierkeller, 6 Thomas Steers Way, L1 8LW
In the words of former England footballer, John Barnes, in the song ‘World In Motion’, “get round the back[yard]” With free entry and no need to book, the Liverpool venue will be screening all of England’s group matches and any games on during the bar’s opening hours. Expect five big screens, banging food like honey BBQ chicken or buffalo roasted cauliflower tacos, as well as some refreshing bevs. They’ll also be serving their signature cocktail that is their pornstar martini slushies served in mini purple wheelie bins for you to sip on as you watch every tackle, free kick and goal.
Backyard, Wolstenholme Square, L1 4JJ
Sports fans won’t miss a game as both PINS Social Club’s bar and their Summer in the Square pop-up at Exchange Flags will be showing all the matches. Plus, the outdoor pop-up will be making an exception on opening hours in order to show the England Euros games on June 22 and July 6. Summer in the Square will also feature drinks packages, which include cocktails, sharers, draught, bottles and cans, wine, champagne, as well as soft drinks. At their Duke Street bar, all screenings will take place in Rocco’s Games Room and there will be additional screens for the England matches in their Ping Pong Room.
PINS Social Club, 45 – 61 Duke Street, L1 5AP
Head down to the Baltic Triangle, where urban bar Dockleaf has a selection of TVs located around their venue both inside and outside (weather dependent, of course). The bar at Cains Brewery, which boasts a rooftop terrace, will be showing a variety of the Euros games and currently still has some availability for the England games (but somewhat limited) for you to book. Simply send Dockleaf a DM to book a table there where you can sip on plenty of beers and cocktails and even tuck into a roast during the Sunday games.
Dockleaf, Cains Brewery Village, L8 5XJ
Popular outdoor Liverpool dining spot, Birdies, hosts a number of movie nights so inevitably it has a rather enviable number of screens for you to watch all of the Euros matches from. Armed with a giant outdoor screen, a large beer garden featuring private cabanas with a personal TV screen in each and plenty of delicious street food and booze, Birdies will be serving up what some might call a hat-trick.
Birdies, 29-31 Parliament Street, L8 5RN
Another gem in the Baltic Triangle, not forgetting their OG in the city centre, where you watch the Euros at is Pattersons. There’s nothing quite like a pint of beer and crispy fried chicken whilst watching the football and luckily this bar and restaurant has got us covered. You can munch on Pattersons’ buttermilk chicken whilst witnessing penalties as they are taking bookings to watch the tournament via their website. Plus, they are launching a number of new specials as well as some drinks offers during the tournament.
Pattersons, 28 Gradwell Street, L1 4JH
107 Stanhope Street, L8 5RE
A much-loved and industrial-style brewery found in the Baltic Triangle, Love Lane Brewery serves up cold pints with plenty of space to watch the footy – and they’re screening the Euros matches this summer. One of Liverpool’s top taprooms, guests can expect tons of beers on tap, as well as tasty grub like pizzas, fries and burgers (good match food, if you ask us) and a proper atmosphere. The brewery will be showing mainly matches being played by England, Scotland and Wales on their projector, so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the taproom while watching the games live.
Love Lane Brewery, 62 Bridgewater Street, L1 0AY
