Barrister's (7923 Forsyth Boulevard, Clayton; 314-726-5007) During the 2010 World Cup final, this was the place where die-hard Dutch fans clad in bright orange gathered en masse. We trust the Dutch. But if that's not enough, Barrister's is the self-proclaimed "Best Happy Hour in Clayton," and the menu is quintessential pub fare: crab cakes, onion rings, twelve kinds of burgers, six varieties of personal pizzas and a Brie-L-T. The brand-new location, though a bit smaller, features a more open layout with plenty of angles to see the game.

The Scottish Arms (8 South Sarah Street; 314-535-0551) The owner of the this fine establishment, Alistair Nisbet, is a native Scot, so this is about as authentic of a European pub as you can get in St. Louis, which means soccer is omnipresent. Along with a strong selection of beer, the list of Scotch and whiskeys is one of the best in town; in fact, it's the largest single-malt collection in the state of Missouri. The food is topnotch as well with fanciful-sounding items like the cock-a-leekie pie and the Ptarmigan (chicken wrapped in bacon). Though the crazy fandom level might remain low, the mood is laid-back and inviting, and the bar is one of the friendliest around. This is the place if you're looking to just kick back and enjoy a pint.
