It happens every four years and now the FIFA World Cup will be decided during four weeks of heart-pounding action.
Where will you watch every corner kick, header and goal? Downtown Phoenix has the perfect pitch for you and your soccer hooligan friends.
The Rose & Crown Pub
The Rose & Crown Pub at Heritage & Science Park has been working tirelessly to create the ideal setting for fans to watch all the World Cup matches, even erecting a covered TV stadium with two 80-inch screens and misters to accommodate large (and loud) groups. There’s also a Caipirinha (Brazil’s national cocktail) bar and trailer offering three additional screens. Raffle prizes include trips to Las Vegas, Diamondbacks tickets, jerseys and official World Cup gear.
Though it’s preferred that you support Team USA or England, all allegiances are welcome. And while you’re glued to the many screens, you can sip specially priced Oskar Blues beers including Old Chub, Mama’s Little Yella Pils and Dale’s Pale Ale ($4), plus the deliciously potent G’Knight Imperial Red ($4.50).
Like big screens? Enjoy Team USA matches (first up, Ghana on Monday, June 17) on Film Bar’s projection screen for free. Members of La Furia Roja 1881, a Phoenix-based soccer support group, get $4 draft beers.
Opening at 8:30 a.m. for 9 a.m. World Cup matches, the Kilt will be serving up a special breakfast menu featuring corned beef hash. The Downtown location is home to the Team USA-supporting American Outlaws soccer club.
