TEAM I ABOUT I CONTACT I GET FEATURED       

Euro 2016 is almost upon us. If you live in Friedrichshain, or have visited F’hain to watch football matches previously, you know what that involves…

…You’re trawling along Simon Dach Strasse, trying to find a spot to cram into in one of those nondescript tourist bars (I call them ‘those orange bars‘). When you finally find a perch, usually next to a family of British holiday-makers just trying to eat their ‘genuine Schnitzel’ in peace, you hear a Mexican-wave of cheers echoing down the street as someone scores, only to discover you picked the one bar with a 10-second delay on its television reception.

BERLIN LOVES YOU Santa Maria Eastside Euro 2016

Thankfully, this time you’ve a quality alternative. Local Mexican streetfood joint Santa Maria Eastside will be hosting a pop-up restaurant/bar at Keule, Simon Dach Strasse 22 (across from Primitiv), for the duration of the tournament.

So, what does a Mexican streetfood/Euro 2016 football cross-over look like? The pop-up bar will have space for at least 150 football-and-food fans, boasts two big screens (including a huge one inside) and will be showing every game of the competition.
