Find Hotels

With a reputation for being the most multicultural city in the world, you couldn’t find a better place than Toronto for rooting for your home team (or someone else’s). Many bars and restaurants throughout the city will be hosting World Cup events and have extended their hours to accommodate early games. For a handful of the best, read on.

Lula Lounge, in the heart of Little Portugal, is a cultural hub for Latin/Afro-Caribbean live music performances and during World Cup they’re focusing on the Brazil games. Caipirinhas, cold beer, Lula’s snack menu and a huge screen make it a great place for the whole family to enjoy the game. THERE WILL BE DRUMMING.

Normally a mecca for Italian fans, since the Azzurri didn’t make it into the World Cup this year, Café Diplomatico is good for many of the other countries’ games. A delicious breakfast and, of course, espresso will help with those early start times. A big street party for the final match on July 15 will be right outside The Dip.

Scallywags in midtown at Yonge & St. Clair is the home bar for fans of Liverpool FC, so England fans will be out in force here. But during the World Cup, it’s a free-for-all. With three levels, including a large open-air rooftop with multiple screens, you can cheer along with supporters from Russia, Belgium, Croatia and more.

If you like your screens HUGE, then Real Sports Bar & Grill is your place. Right next to Union Station and the Air Canada Centre, with a 39-foot HD Big Screen and 199 HD TVs throughout the massive sports bar, it’s the next best thing to being there.

Ricarda’s on Peter Street is a roomy and stylish (bien sur!) option for France’s grand performances, with the bistro’s tasty baked goods and drinks on offer for the events.

For any and all teams located in Latin America, Latin Fiesta on St. Clair West is headquarters. From Peru to Uruguay, Panama to Costa Rica, this sports bar showcases all your fave Latin American teams on five screens and one big projector.
