Where to watch the World Cup?

Looking for suggestions about where to watch the world cup in Boston/Cambridge. Looking for places that open up for the 10am games and places with good bar food.

  1. Atwoods in Cambridge would be a good option (great place to watch a game and solid food). I would also check with Muqueca to see if they will be showing the Brazil and Portugal matches, and they have delicious food. The Banshee in Dorchester would also be another solid option.

    There are also other great places to watch the games with some beers, but the food is unremarkable.

    1010 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02139

    1. Both Penguin Pizza and The Mission in Brigham Circle open at 7am for the matches.

      735 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115

      1. Phoenix Landing in Cambridge

        1. The Field in Central Sq. is a great place to watch games.

            I like watching at the Field too, but their food, not so much.

              so do they have a big screen to watch the games on? im looking for a place for me and some friends to watch it in boston but it cant be a pub or sports bar. We're all 18. im looking for something like a fanzone in europe

              1. re: lando10

                The Field is a pub. I don't know Fanzone, but a Brazilian restaurant (like Cafe Belo) or a cafe in the North End would probably be your best bet.

                I'm not sure, but I think during the day a lot of pubs around here will let you in and not card you unless you try to order alcohol.

                  you wouldn't find a fanzone over here in the US like the ones they have in Europe. Sadly, the US just is not that into soccer in comparison to europe or south america.

                  I was over at Mcgreevy's on boyleston for the England-USA game and it was pretty crazy over there. You have to get in early, however you do have to be 21 to enter

                    I think most TGIMcFriday's type sports bars would let you in. Tavern in the Square, Game On, maybe Beerworks? Just don't try to order any beer.

                    Game On
                    100 Terminal St, Charlestown, MA 02129

                2. The Druid opens at 11am daily and will be opening at 7am for select games.
