September has arrived, and with it comes football season, with Premier League soccer not too far behind. There’s nothing wrong with catching a game at home in front of the television, but many fans would rather head to a bar for potato skins, buffalo wings, and camaraderie.

Luckily, there are no shortage of sports bars across the country to fill that need. Here, Eater has mapped out the best of those destinations in Eater cities. There are bars dedicated to specific team fandoms, watering holes where the food can upstage the action on screen, and of course a selection of bars with 20-some television screens showing every game imaginable. Think destinations like Harry’s Bar in San Francisco, Bayou Beer Garden in New Orleans, Ventnor Sports Cafe in D.C., and more.

Keep in mind that all of these bars are also relevant locations for hockey, basketball, and baseball watching as the year goes on. Find links to all of these maps across the country and beyond below:
