It seems like only yesterday the U.S. Women’s National Team was hoisting their fourth cup in France. But four years goes by pretty quick, and the squad is back for its run at a fifth championship win this summer. Since the women’s team is a favorite to make a deep run into the finals, you won’t want to miss any of the action.

Watching the action live might prove a bit of a challenge, what with games taking place on the other side of the planet (Australia and New Zealand.) Catching them on TV is easy, though, so kick back at the bar with Johnnie Walker Blended Scotch Whisky, partners of women’s soccer teams Angel City FC and Gotham FC. Being out with fellow fans cheering on these amazing athletes can feel like the next best thing to being at the games. Here’s a look at some of the best bars to watch the games in Miami, from local staples to South Beach hotspots.

Batch Gastropub: Miami

Copy Link

This Brickell gastropub is the go-to for financial district dwellers in search of sports, bolstered by a big projection screen on the front patio and flatscreens all the way around the bar. One of Batch’s biggest draws is its food, with short rib mac and cheese with gruyere and Dorito dust, hot honey fried chicken, and the legendary brisket and short rib burger highlighting the menu.

Grails Miami - Restaurant & Sports Bar

Copy Link

If you like your soccer with a side of collectable sneakers, this Wynwood sports bar is your spot. The walls are lined with all sorts of rare and valuable footwear, with one drink even coming served inside a shoe. You can catch the soccer action inside among the sea of sneakers, or head out back to the Miami Vice Patio where screens drip from the overhang and twinkling lights illuminate the tropical setting. Drinks tend to skew sweet, but if you want a nice glass of Johnnie Walker Black Label on the rocks, bartenders are happy to oblige.

American Social

Perhaps halfway through your Miami boat day you stop mid-selfie and realize, “Oh, there’s a game on! We gotta find a place to watch!” American Social solves your problems, as this boat-up spot in Brickell is a favorite for sailors to watch sports. The crowd is a mix of post-college and young professional, and on weekend nights it remains one of the hottest night spots in the neighbrohood. During the day, it’s a breezy place to kick back with a smoked old fashioned made with Johnnie Walker Black Label and enjoy warm weather while you cheer on Team USA.

Sports Grill South Miami

Copy Link

There may be no more quintessentially Miami way to watch a big game than posting up at Sports Grill with a plate of wings. The city’s most popular poultry pairs perfectly with the cup, where you can enjoy the spicy, smokey flavor of wings that are grilled then fried, and covered in Miami Heat, Jerk, Buffalo, or another special wing sauce. The best part about Sports Grill is that even if you’re out in the far-flung suburbs, you’re never far from one of its eight locations, a big reason why it’s still the default sports bar for many Miami natives.

CMX Stone Sports Bar Brickell

Copy Link

Brickell City Centre’s CMX is a luxurious movie theater, where your seats come with waiter service and an extensive menu. But it’s become just as well-known for the Stone Sports Bar, where the largest indoor LED screen in Florida showcases games every day of the week. If a game is in the morning, Stone’s brunch comes with a collection of Wake Up Drinks like mimosas and bloody Marys. Evening contests bring an equally impressive cocktail and food menu, where wood-fired pizzas and tuna poke bowls offer options for every kind of eater.  

Sandbar Sports Grill

Copy Link

Most Miami residents have at least a dozen stories from Sandbar. Sandbar is a beach-themed sports bar where dozens of TVs stand over plates of hot fish tacos and sizzling fajitas, and is buzzing with energy almost every night of the week. Although soccer games may not play standard, they’re open to requests. While the typical cocktail servings here skew tiki, those who prefer to watch the beautiful game in style go for Black Label, neat.

Duffy's Sports Grill

Set along the calming waters of the Intracoastal Waterway, the view at Duffy’s can sometimes distract you from the game. Not that it’s lacking for TVs – both the inside dining room and the warm waterside patio have screens at every angle. But as you enjoy the 2-for-1 drinks that never end and Certified Angus Beef steaks and burgers, then gaze out at the boats floating by, sometimes it’s hard to keep your attention in one place.

Shuckers Waterfront Bar & Grill

Copy Link

The journey from Miami to Miami Beach can be a long one, which is why this outdoor drinking deck along the JFK Causeway is always a welcome site. Shuckers sits right atop Biscayne Bay, where sports fans and sun worshippers have converged to enjoy cold beers and raw seafood for decades. As the name might imply, this local favorite gained a following for its oysters, but has maintained its popularity by becoming Miami’s favorite place to watch sports outside. If rain’s not in the forecast, Shuckers is always a good bet.

Tap 42 Craft Kitchen & Bar - Midtown Miami

Copy Link

With the competition in Australia and New Zealand this year, some games will be played at odd hours. If you’re watching one of those games and find yourself hungry past normal food times, Tap 42 has you covered — the multi-location gastropub boasts the city’s best late night bar menu. The food offerings aren’t limited to burgers and wings either, as you’ll find massive salads filled with quinoa and fresh veggies served into the wee hours. If you’re not trying to go to sleep with a belly full of beer, Tap 42 offers a full liquor bar with Johnnie Walker Black Label and other whiskies to sip during the action.

Black Market Miami

Copy Link

Long before women’s soccer had a cup, Miami was a die hard football town. Black Market’s walls tell that story, covered with nostalgic photographs and newspaper clippings from the Dolphins’ and Hurricanes’ 1980s glory days. The bar isn’t all about the pigskin, though, as you’ll find colorful cocktails and an impressive menu filled with burgers, wings, nachos, and other bar staples. Its two locations are also incredibly convenient, sitting in the heart of Downtown and at bustling Bayside Marketplace.

Mike's At Venetia

Copy Link

The 9th floor of a downtown condo tower isn’t the first place one would expect to find a legendary local Irish bar. But Mike’s at Venetia isn’t exactly a hidden gem, as its elevated views over Biscayne Bay and hot, wood-fired pizza have made it a mainstay for people living near downtown. The bar is simple and unpretentious, the kind of place anyone can stroll in and feel completely at home. It’s also a great spot to watch sports with plenty of screens, a full bar, and a crowd that never feels uncomfortably packed.

Flanigan's Seafood Bar and Grill

Copy Link

If you’ve lived in South Florida for any amount of time, chances are you have at least one green Flannigan’s cup sitting in your cabinets. The place is a downright institution, where wood walls covered in fishing photos and hot grilled wings have woven themselves into Miami culture. Once the players take the pitch for the second half, Flannigan’s has plenty of cocktails to savor for the final 45, including Black Label on the rocks.

Kush at Clevelander Sports Bar

Copy Link

The Clevelander is a local legend, an outdoor art-deco pool bar that’s the epicenter of Ocean Drive excitement. But behind the pool deck the Clevelander’s sports bar was recently taken over by the team from Kush, a popular burger and beer joint with several South Florida locations. The décor is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Miami culture, with references to Ace Ventura, expressway signs, and vintage Miami sports memorabilia. The menu is hearty, with everything from New Mexico Chili to Cuban fritas providing a base for the drinks that are sure to follow.

Vivo! At Dolphin Mall

Copy Link

Miami’s newest addition to the nightlife scene, Vivo! is Dolphin Mall’s neighborhood-sized sports bar and club. Made up of bars-within-bars, Sports & Social is your best bet for catching games in this vast space. They boast a 50-foot mega-TV for high-profile events, but even if the soccer gets outvoted out by, say, baseball, there won’t be any shortage of options for viewing.
