Can't make it to Brazil for the World Cup? Well, the Magic City has got you covered! Starting in Brickell. This neighborhood is home to some of the best spots to nurse your World Cup fever.
With the World Cup kicking off (pun intended) not too long ago, you might be getting bored of watching the games at home. So why not head out and enjoy this amazing city? I’ve taken the liberty and checked out some of the best spots in SoFla to watch the games. These spots offer some great drink and food specials – two things that are important to get through a futbol game, in my opinion – and oh yeah, tons of TV’s to catch the best names in soccer battle it out for the highly coveted title.
Fontainebleau Hotel: If you want to sip in style, and watch the game poolside on a HUGE 14’ x 24’ screen, the Fontainebleau is the place for you! With themed cocktails, yummy dishes, and themed soccer swag, the Fontainebleau is definitely the place to see and be seen. But, if you’re looking for something a little more private, you may want to reserve your own cabana with a private TV, drinks, food, and more. Cabana reservations start at just $599.
