The Home of Football (Outside London) – If you are an ex-pat, visitor stateside or just a footie loving lad or lass, do yourself a favor and drop by on any matchday...Friendly albeit very busy at time bartenders and amazing atmosphere...
MOST OVERRATED SOCCER BAR IN AMERICA. BY FAR. – You can barely see the big screen the picture is so dark and grainy, the other screens are either too small or too spread out, and the service for beer is too slow. The ONLY thing going for it is that it's dedicated to soccer, and even then I've been nights when there's an NBA playoff getting precedence.
No place like it! – Ive traveled the US as well as the rest of the world and if your looking for a friendly pub that recreates the feeling of an english football bar then your here. There are many locals that visit this pub but they have always remain friendly-word on the street is no scousers allowed. Take your time, bring in some fish and chips from the next door resturant and soak in the atmosphere. Jack the bartender is a cutie and as sweet as he can be.
still great for watching football, but... – I've been a semi-regular at Nevada Smiths, since 1997. Its selection of live football is unrivalled in the city. And the variety of games show ensure a quite international crowd - on a rainy and cold Sunday, it really feels like you're somewhere in Europe. OTOH, with its increasing popularity, its becoming too crowded for a laid back afternoon - don't even think about showing up 15 minutes before kick-off in a Barcelona - Real Madrid game. Also, staff have recently become more demanding on purchases - seems like a purchase of 1 beer is no longer enough to be able to sit through a game - a friend told me he was asked to buy another, even after two drinks!
BEST EVER – this place is amazing. i typically go at least once a week, many times two or three. the football is fantastic, the atmosphere is even better. if you like being in a room full of hard core footy fans and a fantastic array of beer, whilst surrounded by a variety of different matches, this is for you. Jack is the greatest bartender ever, truly a legend.
Go there for football! Go! – The succinct summary here is correct, and if you're a proper football fan, you will love this place. I can't vouch for its nightlife -- I don't think the ground floor makes a good bar otherwise -- but if you go to any other bar for sport, by which I mean football, you're doing a disservice to yourself. It's that great!
Service is great. Good bartending.
Setanta the TV channel charges $10 at the door on games only they carry -- otherwise there's no minimum.
Typical NYU scene – Your on 3rd ave in NYU area, you know what to expect. The music was a bit to loud here and if you are looking to get away from the masses and chill with your group of friends head downstairs. This place was pretty empty around 2am on a sat nite, which was surprising considering where it is.
User review by sineadnyc – Excellent service, cheap drinks, Dj at the weekend, karaoke thursday Plasma tv's.
underated – No anywhere I would go on a date. But this place is alot of fun. Great place to meet up with friends and have a chill night. Theres a dance floor in the back, which makes any bar better. And they have a downstairs where you can hang out for a more quiet, comfy room for friends. I love this place.
Heaven – I've been searching for a great sports bar like this for several years. My search is over! This is clearly the best place to be in North America if you are a soccer fan. Unlike other self-proclaimed soccer friendly bars, Nevada Smith's doesn't just show 2-3 soccer games per week and then switch back to baseball or basketball the rest of the time. At Nevada Smith's its soccer 24/7/365!!
