Schatzi’s Pub & Bier Garden

Schatzi’s is proud of its German heritage, and as any good German bar would do, they are showing all the Cup matches in both their New Paltz and Poughkeepsie locations. Enjoy gastropub fare and their rotating selection of 16 German and American draft beer lines while you watch. “We open at noon so we catch the second half of the second game and the entire 3rd game,” the New Paltz manager says. “Sundays we open at 11 do we get 2 of the three games.



Same hours, same deal as the Poughkeepsie location.


‘Nuf said.


Ms. Fairfax

The trendy and unassuming Ms. Fairfax serves up simple, locally sourced dishes focused around cured meats and fine cheese. Add football to the menu this month and you've got the perfect hangout.

Machu Picchu

Aside from serving a mean ceviche, Peruvian restaurant Macchu Picchu is also dishing up the World Cup games. Chow down on some South American-style seafood and watch the tournament. (Peru next plays Tuesday, 6/26 against Australia).


Bank Square Coffeehouse

We hear Bank Square is turning into quite the soccer mecca this month. A coworker tells us there is “always a crowd for the games.” With couches, coffee, and beer you have all the conveniences of a bar and all the comfort of watching in someone’s living room.

The Barking Frog

On Fishkill Avenue, this is a proper American sports bar with the chicken wings and jalapeño poppers to prove it. They are showing all the Cup matches, so head over for your fill of fried food and fútbol.


Egg's Nest
This quirky, colorful bar and restaurant reopened earlier this year under new owners Eric and Cristina Silver. To the relief of longtime local fans, the much of the Jim Murphy murals and kitschy decor has stayed, though things feel less cluttered. The Egg's Nest will be showing all World Cup games at the bar and at their new outdoor patio.


Gaby’s Cafe

Same drill as Rhinebeck.


New York Restaurant

For hearty stick-to-your-ribs Polish-American food and a cool vibe, head to Catskill’s New York Restaurant. They’ll be showing all the FIFA games that areon during business hours, “unless a group of customers requests something like baseball and no one else is watching it.”

Crossroad Taps Room

Not only is this brewing company’s Catskill outpost showing the games, but yesterday they opened two hours early to broadcast the entire match! That is commitment. A manager told us, “We’re opening at 2pm today again (Thursday 621) and tomorrow, and we will continue to alter hours as we sit fit depending on demand.” So get out there.


The Half Moon

One Yelper said it all: "One of the few places in Hudson open past 10PM so thank you bb Jesus for that. A dive bar by definition with a great pool table and clearly an establishment frequented by the locals. No frills and good outdoor area. Bartenders could give more of a shit but otherwise a great spot." They're showing matches, so go forth and watch.
