For fans of Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, there’s no better place to be this weekend than at San Siro in Milan. With a bitter rivalry between two neighboring teams – one of which is looking for its first Champions League win – Saturday’s game is going to be lit. Obviously, not everyone can witness the electrifying atmosphere firsthand, but if you want to be surrounded by your fellow colchoneros or madridistas (or you simply don’t have a TV at home), then head out to one of NYC’s bars to see a rematch of the 2014 UEFA Champions League finals:

The UEFA Champions League finals kicks off at 2:45 p.m. ET. on May 28.


Studio Square

This weekend will be a little warm, but at Studio Square you’ll get as close as possible to being at a stadium. This outdoor venue is a neutral space, and features a large screen where the game will be projected.

35-33 36th Street
Long Island City, NY 11106


Legends' The Football Factory

Legends is another neutral spot, so if you want to just take it all in, this is another top-notch bar to visit.

6 W. 33rd Street
New York, NY 10001



Barleycorn is where Peña Madridista NYC will gather to root on Real Madrid. According to a Facebook event, all Madridistas are welcome, and there is no cover charge. “We are THE place to be if you are a Real Madrid fan in NYC,” the post said. “ONLY madridistas please, don’t bring any [Barça] or Atletico friends, leave them home, this is Real Madrid’s home base in NYC!!”

For you Barcelona fans who just want to watch the world burn, we also got you covered. Head to Smithfield Hall, and shamelessly hate on Real Madrid with other cules. Or try one of their 28 draught beers.
