Watch the World Cup outside at these five viewing parties
Seeing the games in the great outdoors will almost make it feel like you're actually playing…well, maybe
Fri Jun 13 2014
You know it’s good if it has the word official before the title and ends with the word zone. Head to Governors Island to see the games on a big screen, and forgive FIFA for coming up with a title that sounds straight out of an Orwell novel.
Dumbo is hosting viewing parties right under the Manhattan Bridge, and showing over 60 hours of competition. If you have no idea who's playing, you can wander over to Brooklyn Bridge Park when you can get bored and enjoy a dope picnic.
Nothing says “international soccer” like a Texas BBQ joint! We kid. The place is actually quite well-known for being a soccer hub. Head down to Bay Ridge for massive steaks as well as the chance to watch all the action straight from Brazil.
At Berry Park, a spirited rooftop venue in Williamsburg with a spectacular view of the water, the scenery means you can always just turn away from the screen and gaze upon the cityscape if your team is losing.
Rub shoulders with soccer fans, drink expensive cocktails, and cheer on your favorite soccer team as you briefly wonder to yourself, “Didn't I see Fischerspooner play here back in the early 2000s?”
