Soccer Tavern New Jersey, Guide & Review
Soccer Tavern is an amazing Dive bar in New Jersey. Soccer Bar is an Irish pub tucked away in the heart of Brooklyn’s Chinatown, and has been in operation since the prohibition era in 1929. The former speakeasy is located on 8th Avenue which was once packed with Norwegian and Scandinavian businesses, donning the nickname “Lapskaus Boulevard.” Due to a wave of immigration in the 1980s and 90s, the neighborhood is now primarily Chinese, providing a melting pot Scandinavian, Irish, and Asian culture.
Underneath and next to day spas, eye doctors, and insurance companies, sits the family-run Soccer Tavern. The old school bar encompasses the true spirit of Sunset Park, and has become a neighborhood staple for old-timers and newcomers alike. Soccer Tavern features strong & tasty reasonably priced drinks; huge TV screens – good place to watch soccer; decent prices; great owner; wonderful service; amazing vibes; nice backyard area; and friendly & attentive staff. The bar itself is in its original form with little changes to the decor besides the dart tournament trophies lined up against the back wall. Playing darts is a great way to pass the time with good friends or people you’ve just met. From casual to the hardcore, darts is a game of finesse that can be enjoyed by anyone, anytime. The linoleum floors and wood paneling invoke a sense of nostalgia, when most bars in Brooklyn were a casual place to unwind with friends after a long day.
Despite the “dive bar” atmosphere, Soccer Bar is a reliable sports bar, with four televisions airing a variety of games throughout the day. Though the bar’s name implies otherwise, all sports are aired; patrons enjoy watching football games and golf tournaments alike. Indeed this place is great to unwind. Stop by Soccer Tavern and enjoy. A top notch throw back bar! Highly recommended for an amazing & unforgettable experience in New Jersey.
