It’s pretty much a statistical fact that all televisions will be locked on the World Cup tonight, but the question remains: where will you be watching the Game? We’ve done your homework for you. Here are five spots that guarantee a good brew and an even better seat (if you get there early) to catch all the action.
The Charles BarThe World Cup is nearly synonymous with “The World’s Biggest Party” and that’s exactly the vibe you’ll find at The Charles Bar (136 West Cordova St., 604-568-8040). Packed with Gastown locals, the party starts with a nine-foot HD screen and an impressive variety of tacos.
Caffé RomaCommercial Drive, with its European passion for soccer — er, football — attracts the liveliest fans in a clutch of bars that don’t sacrifice trendiness for good-quality eats. Caffé Roma (1510 Commercial Dr., 604-251-7586) is a brilliant example, featuring a long outdoor patio and plenty of plasma TVs.
Yaletown Brewing CompanyYaletown Brewing Company (1111 Mainland St., 604-681-2739) has been here since the beginning (we’re talking Vancouver’s original brewpub) and has successfully established itself as a go-to spot for a fun and friendly atmosphere. With a legion of awards under its belt (it’s been voted Canada’s Best Brewpub several times at the Canadian Brewing Awards), this 160-seater won’t disappoint.
Red Card Sports Bar + EateryWith sixteen HD screens and two 106″ projector screens, Red Card Sports Bar + Eatery (560 Smithe St., 604-689-4460) is clearly a sports bar. But you won’t find the usual bar grub here. Instead, expect Italian-inspired, locally sourced food, and a drinks menu stacked with choice international draft beers.
CRAFT Beer MarketOffering Canada’s largest selection of draft beer, CRAFT Beer Market (85 West 1st Ave., 604-709-2337) has scored big in the hearts of suds-lovers. With towering ceilings, two raised mezzanines, and ample television screens encircling the central bar, you’re guaranteed both a good view and a lively audience.
