a little bit of history to go with your beer – ?the Soccer has been a bar since 1928 (serving as a speakeasy during prohibition ? hence the hole in the wall appearance). The bar was originally located along the right wall allowing easy access to the basement but was moved to the left wall - at some point there were booths but now there are a couple of tables and room to play darts.
With a couple of TVs you can watch the game (and/or a movie) and the walls are filled with randomness ? including a world map and a map of the 50 states just in case there should be a need to settle an argument of where someplace is (and the map is consulted more than you think) ... as for the crowd ? it is a ?multi-flavored international clientele? that has its own harmony. The juke box has 99 CDs but only 60 are actually listed in the juke box itself ? for the remaining CDs you will need to consult the sheets of paper taped together that usually sits on top (You can only laugh at a couple of the typos and a few incomplete song lists.) The CDs vary - including country, rock and irish tunes with a sprinkle of some international tunes - but overall the music definitely agrees with the bar and you are sure to find something you like.
? some bottled beers and hard alcohol ? but do not expect to see too many fancy drinks ? and you can only find four beers on tap (bud, budlight, guinness & whatever they feel like carrying on the fourth)
? there is more character to the bar ? such as the ?shaving cream song? - but I can not give away all its secrets ?
