World Cup Fever: Watching in Toronto

The cultural diversity of Toronto is never more apparent then every four years during the month of the World Cup.

The flags are flying – on cars, outside bars, pubs and restaurants.  The excitement is building, the anticipation of the honking cars and revelers in the street is palpable.  So the big question around town is “Where are you watching the game?”  Here are some hotspots for taking in some World Cup Action:

  • Cafe Diplomatico - in the heart of one of Toronto’s two Little Italys, The “Dip” is perfect place to take in the action and passion the Italians have for the game.  With a large screen inside and screens set up on the patio it is the next best thing to being there.  594 College Street West (map)
  • Philthy McNasty’s- boasting over 50 tvs you are sure not to miss out on any action – each booth has its own screen , and if nature calls, don’t despair there are even two tvs in the washroom!  276 King Street West
  • Bier Markt - with beer from 24 different countries available, you are sure to find one for the team you are rooting for!  58 The Esplanade (map)
  • Hemingways - if you still want top be in the heart of Toronto’s “fashion scene”, this classic pub located in Yorkville will keep you up to date on the score while you keep up to date on the fashion.  142 Cumberland Street (map)

You also can’t fail by strolling through Little Italy, Corso Italia, the Danforth or Little Portugal and finding a local bar to take in the action!
