Pizzeria Azzurri

Copy Link

For those in the northern ‘burbs, Pizzeria Azzurri is a soccer lover’s dream. Futball is in their DNA as azzurri is the nickname for the Italian team, even if they aren’t playing in the Cup this year. The pizzeria is one of the few official OTP Atlanta United pub partners and is tapping Three Taverns’ “Rowdy And Proud” for the entirety of the festivities. The menu is filled with build-your-own pizzas, Italian-American classics like lasagna and cheese, crispy wings, and red sauce-laden sandwiches. There’s even options for the gluten-free here.

Meehan's Public House

No matter what neighborhood one lives in, there is probably a Meehan’s nearby with soccer on the telly. Meehan’s serves traditional pub fare like Guinness-battered fish and chips or a shepherd’s pie filled with lamb and vegetables. A popular favorite is the Meehan’s burger; a ground steak patty topped with sharp cheddar spread and smoked bacon on an English muffin. Meehan’s also has locations in downtown Atlanta, Midtown, and Sandy Springs.

The beer garden and restaurant on Marietta Street downtown offers multiple TVs for watching soccer and a menu featuring traditional German pub foods such as brats, pretzels with mustard, and strudels. German beers are on draft like Weihenstephan, Warsteiner, and Spaten. There may or may not be live music on any given night on the patio.

The Elder Tree Public House

Copy Link

The dark wood and scarves hanging on the walls peg this East Atlanta Village pub as unmistakably soccer-centric. The owners are Atlanta United founding members and welcome fans with open arms, and a cold beer. Snack on duck fat fries served with curry and a house Marie Rose sauce, or for something more substantial, try the shredded lamb sandwich with Irish cheddar and horseradish served on a baguette.

The Midway Pub

A favorite among both beer geeks and soccer nerds alike, this East Atlanta Village bar is just the spot to combine the two. Between sips of local brews, try the southwest style green chicken chili, thick with roasted poblanos and chicken or the hand-dipped corn dogs (beef or veggie) with a sinus-clearing spicy beer mustard. The expansive patio is also dog-friendly.
