Where Should You Watch the World Cup?

Posted by Hillary Waldron on Fri, Jun 20, 2014

soccerThe World Cup is in full swing and there are some awesome bars in the area that have some dedicated fans. Here are the top bars in the area to watch, enjoy and experience the World Cup Games. 

The Banshee, Dorchester
"The Banshee Pub is the number one bar and restaurant to watch domestic and European sports in the greater Boston area. If your game is being broadcast in North America then you can rest assured that the Banshee will be showing it on one of its 10 flat screen televisions that span two floors of entertainment." It was even rated by Buzzfeed as one of the best bars to watch the World Cup. 

Cask 'N Flagon/Game On, Fenway
Cask N' Flagon & Game On are great bars to watch any game. They both provide ample space with tons of tvs for all types of sports fans. You don't need to go to Fenway during a Red Sox game to enjoy a game in Kenmore Square. 

"Cask 'N Flagon will also be serving a special Caipirinha cocktail with Boca Loca cachaça, mashed limes and sugar. The drink will be available through July 13."

Porter Belly's/Green Briar, Brighton
Porter Belly's & Green Briar are small Brighton bars but they are great places to have a pint and watch the game if you're in the area.  If you'd prefer to go to a larger establishment, have no fear, Brighton Beer Works is right around the corner.
