Watching football is better in a group. Here's a list of places in the city screening games for Brazil 2014

There may not be any prime-time screenings this time around – group stage matches are pencilled in for 12midnight, 3am and 6am kickoffs on most nights – but if you want to enjoy the World Cup with other fans (and lack of sleep isn't an issue), these bars and pubs will be screening them live throughout the tournament.

Bricks & Barrels

You don’t have to worry about not finding a table here as this bar is pretty spacious. They screen matches on two projector screens and TVs, with complimentary valet services provided (so you won't miss a crucial moment of the game looking for parking). Spending RM150 and above immediately entitles you to enter the bar's guess the score contest for a chance to win a trip to the Maldives.

SOULed Out

You can watch most of the matches on HD projector screens over drinks and good snacks at SOULed Out outlets in Sri Hartamas, Bangsar South and Jalan Ampang. Plus, if you’re new to the luxury car service Uber, you can get RM50 off your first three rides – don’t drink and drive!

The bar is a famous hangout spot for students and youngsters alike and to accommodate the crowd, Barfly serves some of the cheapest beers in the city. You can watch the matches live at their Publika, Soho KL and StarParc outlets.

Black Forest

We all know how all that shouting and excitement during a match can leave us hungry. Lucky for you, Black Forest is serving free flow currywurst for all 12midnight matches screened. Here's another reason to go crazy over a goal: The bar will be giving out free schnapps for every goal scored.

And if you'd rather go to a mamak...

Restaurants, Hawker

Restoran Murni

icon-location-pin SS2

This SS2 mamak is an institution, putting a spin on nearly all established mamak favourites. Seemingly any word that can be attached to ‘roti’ is – roti Hawaii, roti seafood, roti scramble. (Aforementioned roti Hawaii contains minced meat, sausage and egg, and is topped with a spider web of mayonnaise.) They boast possibly the most extensive mamak menu in existence. As featured in Time Out KL's 101 things to do in KL Awards Food Awards 2010   Restoran Murni SS2 was shortlisted in the Best Hawker / Mamak category of the Time Out KL Food Awards 2010. Our food awards are 100% voted for by the people of KL. This way, we guarantee that popularity and consistent performance is rewarded.

Steven's Corner

icon-location-pin Cheras

Purportedly the first 24-hour restaurant in the region (they decided to try out the concept back in 1985), Steven’s Corner is one of the better-known mamaks in town. They try to be as authentic as possible, with all their spices for curries and other concoctions being imported from India. The most popular dishes among loyal patrons are the nasi lemak, burung puyuh, paper thosai, chicken chop, and roti bakar. This mamak also serves Chinese, Malay, Western and Thai food, complete with catering services. Steven's Corner has other outlets in Setapak and OUG.

Devi's Corner

icon-location-pin Bangsar

Bangsar’s most treasured Indian restaurant is built on the foundation of rich curries and generously spicy condiments. While most of you may frequent Devi’s at ungodly hours of the night, it’s the restaurant’s daytime banana leaf section we like the most. Tucked away upstairs, the banana leaf range is an impressive one – opt for the creamy, dreamy Kerala fish curry but be wary of the chilli-laced mutton masala. This isn’t the cheapest banana leaf meal in town but air-conditioned Bangsar corners come with a price. Awards Food Awards 2011, 2012, 2013   Devi's Corner won Best Cheap Eats in the Time Out KL Food Awards 2013. It was shortlisted Best Banana Leaf in 2012 and voted Best Mamak/Hawker in 2011. Our food awards are 100% voted for by the people of KL. This way, we guarantee that popularity and consistent performance are rewarded.

Nasi Kandar Pelita

icon-location-pin Bangsar

It’s not often you say ‘nasi kandar’ without it being followed shortly by ‘Pelita’. This nasi kandar chain didn’t get to the top by being boring either – you can get the standard offerings, but also crab masala, honey roasted chicken and some very good calamari. And with numerous outlets in the Klang Valley, it’s not gone unnoticed. Awards Food Awards 2010, 2011 and 2012   Nasi Kandar Pelita was voted Best Cheap Eats in the Time Out KL Food Awards 2012 and was shortlisted in the Best Hawker / Mamak category in 2010 and 2011. The restaurant won in the same category in 2010. Our food awards are 100% voted for by the people of KL. This way, we guarantee that popularity and consistent performance is rewarded.
