Local World Cup Viewing Spots

world-cup

In our humble opinion, the World Cup is meant to be watched with a crowd. As a worldwide viewing event that only happens once every four years, it is meant to be shared with others who share the same love of sport. Early Group Rounds start Thursday – with games airing at 9am, 12p, 3p and 6p locally. World Cup Schedule via FIFA.

Here is a list of a few local haunts with big TVs, well stocked bars and good food:

El-Toro-CantinaEl Toro Cantina | 5364 Wilshire Boulevard (at Cloverfield)

Mexican favorites, healthy eats and paninis. Full bar. Lots of TVs visible from multiple angles…good spot to go with a crowd.

Craft burgers and beers. 2 big screen TVs  above the bar. Get there early…especially if it’s warm outside.

GUELAGUETZA_Logo_LandingGuelaguetza | 3014 West Olympic Boulevard (at Irolo Street)

Mexican food – Oaxacan style! Great prices and a festive atmosphere to watch any of the games…but especially Mexico’s El Tri. And LA Times Food Critic Jonathan Gold branded it the “best Oaxacan restaurant in the country”.

WH-FINAL-LOGOWirsthaus | 345 North La Brea Avenue (north of Beverly Boulevard)

German beers and traditional German eats…6 flat screen TVs and 120″ projection. Might not be the place to watch the USA’s third game against heavily favored Germany on Thursday, June 26 (unless you are rooting for Germany, of course!). All other games should be a blast.

33 taps33 Taps | 6263 Hollywood Boulevard at Vine Street

The folks who run 33 Taps are all in…all games, full bar and loads of TVs. This is a good spot to take all the passion of the event in with hard core sports fans likely to hunker down for the day.

OinksterThe Oinkster | 776 Vine Street

Pastrami, burgers and chicken…accompanied by a shake or a beer. Or enjoy a healthy salad with a soda or their popular Oinksterade. Picnic table seating with TVs. Sounds like the place to be for the World Cup Group Rounds.
