EUROS (England) - Where to Watch

Any suggestions of the best bars to watch the England games in?

I went to Paddy's for the opening game and was quite underwhelmed, possibly because it is an Irish bar and not English as such.

I know traditionally the Lion or Oliver Twist (Pickwicks) are English bars so will try that for the Scotland game, however open to suggestions if there is a better spot in or around the city?

Thanks
Jack

Thanks. Unfortunately Google won't tell if a place is busy or gets a good atmosphere for England games.

Of course, Google is not an oracle to predict if they're going to win the game or not in advance.

You could always create a social event and bring your own fans to any pub

I would actually consider organising one if we get to the semis (6-7 July)

Re: EUROS (England) - Where to Watch

I just thought it was a pretty simple question on an English forum.. Where in Zurich is popular to watch the England games. Apparently not

Nothing's simple anymore. I think it's great that people want to meet up again but I don't think everyone's in that mindset yet.

It's a misnomer.

Maybe look on Brits in Switzerland facebook group where's there's half a chance there'll be some English people.

Re: EUROS (England) - Where to Watch

Hi

Im in Basel for couple of days (used to spend more time here) and looked at usual haunts to watch 2 SFs such as Pickwicks, Flanagans, Paddy Reillys but also some others worth a try - Volta Brau (good craft beer) and Markthalle (also good beer here and lots of food choice) and checking all out tonight in the rain! Forecast better tomorrow
