Even São Paulo, not a particularly obvious tourist city, has been unable to escape the Irish Pub phenomenon, and O’Malley’s in Jardins is the most popular. One issue with watching football in bars in Brazil concerns whether or not the place in question will have access to the correct TV channel – at O’Malley’s, this is never a problem.
With over a dozen screens and access to all sports channels available, if the game is being televised, you can watch it at O’Malley’s. As a result, this is the place to go to watch European matches, often harder to find on regular television channels. On Champions League nights, the bar can get quite rowdy, with fans of Europe’s top clubs all cheering their teams on.
Besides the football, O’Malley’s offers up decent pub grub and a good selection of imported beers from the British Isles – the least you can expect from an Irish pub in South America.
