Places We Recommend to Watch the Olympics
We checked in with some of our favourite Aussie pubs around the country, and most of them will have their TVs tuned to the big Olympic moments. We encourage you to grab a group of friends, be they Australians, Americans, and Internationals alike, and get an Aussie advantage by securing some “home turf.” What better way to get the good vibes going than by sharing a pint or two or some meat pies where they’re available?
New York, NY: The Australian in NYC
20 W 28th Street (between 5th and 6th Ave)
The Australian is going to be one of the best places in New York City for Aussie Olympic coverage. They’ll be showing all of the events in our list below (in fact, they created the list and have agreed to let us share it with all of you). Some of the early morning events, such as rowing and some preliminary basketball, haven’t been included on this list due to the time, but we’ve been assured that if you really do want the pub to open for these, show some interest and get in touch with them by calling them on 212-869-8601. The Australian also includes a full, delicious menu and a great range of Aussie beers and cocktails.
Boston, MA: KO Pub and Pies
256 Marginal Street, Building 16
East Boston, MA
KO Catering and Pies, a brand new pub and Aussie pie joint, is the place to go in Boston for cheering on the athletes. Their TV screens will be solidly tuned to the Olympics, and Aussie chef/owner Sam Jackson encourages as many Aussies as possible to come down and get together to barrack for gold! We’ve heard great things about their pies, and they also have a delicious menu of contemporary Australian classics as well as a beer list featuring Coopers and other Aussie beer specialties.
Portland, OR: Pacific Pie Co
1520 Southeast 7th Avenue
This Portland bakery and bar will also be tuned in and is encouraging Aussies to come down and cheer their Olympic heroes while enjoying a beverage and some pies. They’ll be playing the big events during their opening hour so if you’re in the area, don’t miss this chance to try their delicious savoury or yummy sweet pies washed down with some great wine or beer.
Greater DC Area: ‘Cheer on our Aussies’ Parties
Summers Grill and Sports Bar
1520 North Courthouse Road
