If you don’t want to miss the action (and with a record amount of countries participating in a record amount of athletics this year, there will be action), check out these New York City locations where you can watch your country take the gold and grab a pint while doing do.

With an open 4,000 square-foot space, and several big screen HDTVs, this Flatiron sports bar is renowned for being one of the best in the city to catch a game.

Woodwork Brooklyn
A spot where soccer fans have been known to get rowdy, the Woodwork Brooklyn is excited to be hosting screenings of the the 2016 Rio Games. Stop in for a $3 beer and/or a $6 beer plus a well shot, and try the Woodwork’s signature savory bread pudding.(583 Vanderbilt Ave., Brooklyn; 718-857-5777)

This is a great place for a Olympic Game viewing get-together with the gang. The Warren 77 features all the classic bar food one could hope for (try the poutine) with a great selection on tap. This popular Tribeca pub has 9 TVs that will be screening the Olympic Games and is worth a visit for a burger and a beer with the games. (77 Warren St.; 212-227-8994)
