Q: Where can football fans watch UK Premier League matches in Reykjavík?

A: Reykjavík has many sports bars showing live football, and they are as diverse as they are many. Two of the most popular ones are without a doubt Bjarni Fel (named after sports announcer and former football player Bjarni Felixson) and Enski barinn, also known as the English Pub. Both bars are located on Austurstræti street, have multiple television screens, and show all major sports events.

Other popular sports bars are Lebowski bar, located on Reykjavík’s main street, Laugavegur, Danska kráin on Ingólfsstræti, and Rauða ljónið, meaning the Red Lion, situated in Eiðistorg shopping center in Seltjarnarnes (a short drive from downtown Reykjavík and a good option for those staying in the Vesturbær neighborhood of Reykjavík). Go team!

Lastly there’s Ölver, a true sports bar located at Álfheimar 74 in Reykjavík. The bar boasts three large projection screens and a number of flat-screen televisions, which means there isn’t a bad seat in the house.
