Smithfield Hall is the best soccer bar in New York City. You can happily come to this big bar in Chelsea wearing the Liverpool or Barcelona scarf you got during your semester abroad, but it’s also where you should go to watch a Dutch league match at 8:30am with crowds of people talking about the most promising prospects in the Ajax youth academy. There are a ton of TVs, and if you contact them ahead of time, they’ll almost always put whatever match you want to watch on at least one of them.
