This year’s Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro span more than two weeks, which means there are plenty of opportunities to watch events—be that in the comfort of your own home, in a packed sports bar, or at a major park. No matter what type of crowd you’re looking for, you’ll find a great place to watch the games in these cities around the world.
The viewing parties range from free (in Tokyo’s public parks) to invite-only (at the swanky, celebrity-filled Omega House in Rio). There are activities for children and adults of all ages in London and Philadelphia. And you’ll never have to look too far for a specialty cocktail in places like San Francisco and Vail.
And no matter what sport you’re into, you’re likely to find like-minded people, ready to cheer along or launch into a spirited debate, at some of the best bars around the world. That’s the greatest thing about the Olympics—even though it’s happening far from home for most, it’s a global event that brings people together, in hotels, public squares, and local watering holes.
