Where have folk been watching the games? Watched quite a few in Footlights and The Chanter, was in Platform 5 at Haymarket on Friday for the first time (surprisingly cheap) and had a good night in The Phoenix last night.

Cak and Barrel in Newington is a decent place to watch the footy. Good beer and plenty of TVs.

I like the pheonix for football, the big screen behind the bar is a good idea.

Really like Platform 5 was there on friday with a couple of lads for the 1st game then back last night with the missus for food and the Brazil game.

Pints of Peroni are 4 but well worth it and the food was brilliant!

I've enjoyed Shakespeare's on Lothian rd for a few games. Two massive screens ( with good picture ) and loads of TVs and dare I say it in my older age "not too busy" !

Reverie on Newington road is the place to be for all Oranje games. You even get a free stroopwafel at half time.

Is that the one on the corner? Seen a fleet of Dutch along Newington Road there last week...

I used to like watching football at the Brauhaus until it became a fan club for the more bigoted of the Hearts support.

I've just managed down to Edinburgh for one game and went there for Brazil v Chile. Absolutely brilliant atmosphere, loads of Brazilians, salsa band and great scran.

If they'd made the final I was going to head down for it.

Funnily enough, Ryans bar was recently infiltrated by some of these types when I last paid a visit. Crap gaff anyway, won't be back.

Awful place. Used to be quite good with real ale offers etc. Better going to Mathers across the road. Old style pub.

I was back in there again last night, I'm quite impressed with it too, could be an "interesting" venue on big match days at Tynie! :-)

I see Tartan Special is back on the shelves, God help us. I suppose it'll be to cash in on The Games/Referendum etc.

Mathers east end. Was brilliant back in the day, went really downhill but back on form. Watched Brazil v Colombia there. A wee change from the Cask and Barrel which is great but always busy.

Platform 5 is decent, was in again this afternoon after several previous visits, might just settle for watching the final at home though.

Never been there always frequent the West End one, is it owned by the same people or was previously?
