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.

Kent Ale House
This spot will host 13 flat screen TVs dedicated to screening all the big time sporting events, and 24 craft beers on tap with over 30 bottled beer selections. There’s a happy hour from 3-7, including additional special during game time. (51 Kent Ave., Brooklyn; 347-227-8624)

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)
