The English Premier League is the most popular soccer league in the world, with the new season kicking off Saturday at 10 a.m. here on the East Coast. Think that’s too early to post at a sports bar for a game being played 3,600 miles away? Then pity the bartender who has to open at Fado when the 7:45 a.m. ET matches start in a few weeks.

We’re often asked for recommendations, so we put together a list of the city’s best soccer bars where you can sip on a pint while watching your favorite team.
