From a street party in Brickell, to feeling like you're in Spain on Espanola Way, where to watch the World Cup final on Sunday.
Spain vs. Netherlands
Sunday, July 11
1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach
1421 South Miami Ave.
Off Washington Ave, between 14th and 15th Streets
After nearly a month of soccer and 62 games, the World Cup final has arrived between Spain and the Netherlands. Here are our top picks to watch the game on Sunday, whether you are rooting for Spaniards, pulling for the Dutch, or just want to blow your vuvuzela in hopes that Miami gets to host some World Cup madness in 2018 or 2022.
Segafredo Brickell Street Party
They will be closing the streets in Brickell (South Miami Ave. between SE 13th Street and SE 14th Terrace)
and hosting a massive watch party, complete with a pre-game concert by latin rocker Alejandro Sanz. There will be a large LED screen to watch the final game in the streets, and plenty of food and drinks to purchase at Segafredo. Sorry, but no more table reservations are available at Segafredo. We heard that FIFA (the world's governing body over soccer) has challenged Miami to show them what they can do for a World Cup final. Let's see what happens. Party starts at noon and ends at 9 p.m..
You and 479 of your best friends/soccer fans can fill up the Colony Theater on July 11 for the World Cup finals, all for a mere $10 per person. If you move the party to the Colony Theater, you will all be enjoying the games together on a 40' x 25' HD screen.
Want to feel like you're in Spain, rooting for "La Roja" and feeling every gut-wrenching moment of the game? Then head to Tapas y Tintos or Cafe Barcelona (sister restaurants) at the corner of Espanola Way and Drexel Ave. on South Beach. The street will be packed with Spain fans and if they win, the celebration will spill out into the street with singing and dancing for hours. Check out the video above to get a glimpse of what it was like when Spain won its semifinals match.
3015 Grand Avenue, No. 250 , Miami; 305-567-2462
This bar in Coconut Grove is the unofficial home of Netherlands soccer fans in Miami. The owners of this place are Dutch, so you better wear your orange colors if you plan on going. There will be $2 frozen beer specials and plenty of Dutch-themed foods. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.
