Venue showing World Cup matches with screens outside?

Does anyone know of a bar or restaurant that will be showing the World Cup matches that has TVs or screens outside? I'd prefer not to be locked in some dark bar or restaurant watching the games on a beautiful summer day.

Many thanks.

    Check out Loreley on the LES. I know they are showing all the games live. Pretty sure it'll be on in their outdoor area.

      Thanks for the recommendation. I called Loreley. They are showing the games indoors, but they will not have any screens in their backyard patio.

        Thanks. Brass Monkey is not taking any more reservations for their rooftop bar for Saturday's US/England match, but this is a good suggestion for other games.

            If you are willing to make the trip to the Financial District, Beckett's (www.beckettsnyc.com) on Stone Street already has the big screen set up for outside viewing. Picnic tables in the (pedestrian) street, but far from unlimited seating; others along the street, may do likewise, but B's is a certainty. Dublin (right across the street) is far from dark: Windows on three sides and multiple TVs. Food at neither is remarkable--indeed almost Hound antithetic.

              A bunch of the UES sports bars like Ship of Fools have TV screens for the outdoor tables. Or you can go to a place like Vertigo on 26th and 3rd where they have huge sliding glass walls that are usually wide open when its nice out.

                Believe it or not, Gowanus Yacht Club on Smith street in Brooklyn is showing the games outside. Saw them putting the dish in this week...

                        Yes, Terminal 5 at 610 west 56th street NY NY is showing all the games on a large LED outdoor screen on their roof deck, there's no admission fee and it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun
