What comes to mind when the World Cup finally rolls around? Some may say the sport itself, but really, it's "where are the best places to have a few pints, grub down on some pub food, and cheer as loud as I possibly can for the U.S. of A." Charleston has you covered in all of the aforementioned areas, and here are three of RootsRated’s favorite places to get rowdy for U.S. Men's Soccer during the World Cup.
1. The Blind Tiger
When you picture yourself watching a soccer game at a bar, you want the experience to be as authentic as possible, and The Blind Tiger delivers. The atmosphere is that of an old pub, except there are massive flat screen TV’s everywhere you look. Feel free to walk around inside the Blind Tiger or out on their patio during half-time. Order some of the best bar food in town, and wash it down with a wide selection of local beer. The Blind Tiger has been around since Prohibition, so they know a thing or two about keeping their taps constantly running, go see for yourself.
2. Coleman Public House
Ride over the Ravenel Bridge and park yourself at the bar of Coleman Public House for at least one of the World Cup games; you’d be missing out if you didn’t. Locals from all over the area will tell you that you'll find amazing food, one of the best beer selections in town with 16 constantly changing taps, and friendly people to watch the games with. The Coleman Public House is fairly large, so you’ll have plenty of friends to join in on USA chants- we know that’s an important factor for many of you.
What could be better than watching the U.S. score a goal and celebrating by jumping in the ocean? Rita’s
- on Folly Beach has the perfect patio to watch the World Cup, and it’s a stones throw away from the beach. An excellent food selection will keep your tank full, and the margaritas are never ending. If you’re in town, and want to watch the World Cup the Folly Beach way, head over to Rita’s. Depending on the time of the game you want to watch, you may even be able to catch some waves afterwards at
You’re guaranteed to have the best time watching the World Cup at any of these places. If you’re feeling ambitious, go to all three of them and thank us later.
