Court & Spark
550 Court Street at 9th St
Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn
Subway: F Train to Smith & 9th
Jimmy Drago and Henry Lopez, the proprietors of C&S have put in a petanque court in their backyard and a big screen to show every World Cup match. So after you watch some footie, head in the backyard and toss some boule with the Carroll Gardens regulars.
4 Berry Street at North 12th
Subway: L Train to Bedford Avenue
We hear that Berry Park, the new rooftop beer garden in Williamsburg is offering $1 beers to anyone showing up in a soccer kit. Games will be shown en vivo on a large projection screen. There is nothing like Al Fresco drinking, cheap beer, and footie!!!
583 Vanderbilt and Dean St.
Prospect Heights, Brooklyn
Subway: C to Clinton-Washington
Woodwork was just voted one of the best Soccer bars in America by GQ Magazine. So they started taking reservations. Try to get there for a game during the week because the weekends will be a mob scene.
7 Rivington (btwn Bowery & Chrystie)
Lower East Side
Subway: F, V to 2nd Avenue
The German beer garden across from Freeman's Alley will be showing games on multiple plasma screens and a new projection screen. We are still trying to find out if that projection screen will be large enough to be viewed from the garden. Reservations are taken for tables of ten or more.
Scuderia Restaurant & Bar
257 Sixth Avenue (btw Houston and Bleeker)
Support the Azzurri at this popular bar to watch Serie A matches. The fare is Northern Italian and there are cocktail specials such as the Scuderia Shandy (Peroni beer/St.Germain/Lemon). Oh and Italy are the reigning Champions - the staff and regulars won't let you forget it!
649 East 9th Street
Subway: L Train at Avenue A
One of our favorite cocktail dens has rented several flat screens and will be showing every match. Count on Gianfranco, Zachary, Glenn, and company to keep the bar snacks from Russ & Daughters, artisanal beer, and cocktails flowing while you enjoy the beautiful game.
For a schedule of the matches check out FIFA World Cup's website.
