Between Third and Fourth Avenues in the East Village, Nevada Smiths (tagline: "where football is religion") is open from the early morning until just before sunrise. One of the best-known bars for watching soccer--or football--in the world, the schedule at Nevada Smith’s is tied to when matches happening in other time zones are aired. But no matter the hour, the bar’s patrons are friendly and impassioned, despite its temporary relocation to Webster Hall while it waits to move into new digs. (The old ones were demolished.) Though the emphasis is on English soccer (check out the Manchester United jerseys on the walls), Nevada Smiths airs a broad variety of international matches on twenty television screens. There’s also a small and often packed dance floor in the back, where a post-collegiate crowd breaks it down to top-forty hits in between reasonably-priced well drinks and sips of the more than forty beers available. --Diana Clarke
