Where to Watch the World Cup on Long Island

Others, Sports & Recreation, National & World News, Seasonal & Current Events

Here’s a few great sports bars on Long Island where you can catch the games.

The first round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup will be wrapping up on Thursday, which means the best soccer games are still to come. The United States will be playing Portugal at 6 p.m. on Sunday, a perfect time to get down to the bar and support the team. I believe that we will win!
 
Here are just a few local spots on Long Island that will be showing the games:
 
60 Terry Rd, Smithtown
Happy hour goes  from noon until 7 p.m., so be sure to show up for the earlier games at 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. to enjoy twofers on all draft beers, wine and house mixed drinks. There will also be half priced appetizers. Rockwell’s has a full menu and a great selection of beers.
 
210 Merrick Rd, Rockville Centre
Parlay Gastropub in Rockville Centre will be extending happy hour until 8 p.m. during all World Cup games. There are over 40 beers on tap and a full menu. Parlay is also having a World Cup vacation giveaway during June and July. The winner will receive a trip for two to to Rio De Janiero, Brazil, including 4 nights and five days at a resort and round trip airfare.
 
227 4th Ave, Bay Shore
Remember to familiarize yourself with this list of songs before heading to Declan Quinn’s for the U.S. vs. Portugal game. Hundreds showed up during the U.S. vs. Ghana game on Monday, and you can be sure to see and hear just as many during tomorrow’s match.
 
10 Main St, East Hampton
This is an English-style pub and restaurant that has been cooking up specialties during World Cup games. Buy a Rowdy Hall World Cup 16-ounce cup for $6 and you get $5 refills on all draft beer.
