Manhattan’s Top Soccer Bars: Kinsales TavernApril 21, 2010
More of a hidden gem than a well known footy bar, Kinsales Tavern is tucked between 93rd and 94th streets on 3rd avenue in Manhattan. The traditional Irish pub has a great atmosphere on game day particularly for International games. As Nevada Smiths is renowned for being the Mecca of soccer bars in New York, Kinsales is able to operate in the shadow and still provice equal soccer going experience with the added bonus of not being packed to capacity on game days while still offering a passionate audience. Kinsales has over 12 High Definition TVs which play various games to appease the wishes of different groups of supporters. One can almost always find a seat or standing room and can enjoy a great selection of European beers on draft including Carlsberg, a personal favorite. The bar also has seating in the back that allows larger parties to enjoy the soccer going experience. Expect Kinsales to be an Upper East Side favorite during the World Cup.
