Euro 2020 (which takes place in 2021 because, well, you know why) kicked off on June 11 and, after a long season of consistent football, we’re ready for even more.
But there is one key difference now: unlike most of the last Premier League season, we can actually watch games in commercials. What a joy to be back watching football with pints and friends.
Of course, nothing is certain, but we are confident that pubs and bars, at least with social distancing measures in place, will remain open throughout the tournament, which this year, for the first time, is taking place. at sites across the continent.
That said, a good number of matches, including the semi-finals and the final, take place at Wembley, so it practically feels like a home tournament.
Will England replicate the Welfare World Cup performance but ultimately flawed in the summer of 2018? Can Wales imitate their Euro 2016 semi-final? And how will Scotland fare in their first major tournament since 1998?
Here is our pick of the best pubs and places to watch the action and enjoy a good meal or drink while we’re at it…
Gibney’s London, Old Street, London
Gibney’s is one of London’s finest Irish pubs, and it’s located in the basement of Daffodil Mulligan, celebrity chef Richard Corrigan’s latest restaurant, which has received rave reviews.
This Old Street hangout will show off all the games, comfortable booths are available for private hire, and guests can help themselves to Heineken mini kegs. Home to one of London’s best Guinness and its own Gibney’s Stout, as well as mouth-watering bar snacks (or you can eat upstairs ahead of time), Gibney’s is available for dates, though matches in England are tickets.
