- Bar Dupont (1500 New Hampshire Ave. N.W.) will broadcast each game throughout the tournament alongside breakfast, lunch and dinner meals and happy hour specials. Specials include South African Red and white wines. During finals, Bar Dupont will host special barbecues on the patio.
- Chima Brazilian Steakhouse (8010 Towers Crescent Drive # 100, Vienna, VA) is taking a different approach to the coverage of the World Cup games. The restaurant, which is not open during the day, will record the games and replay them when the restaurant is open (pretty neat, right?). So after that long day of work, head to Chima to enjoy the large flat screen TVs, and the fine dining Brazilian bar environment.
- Dukem (1114 U St. N.W.) will broadcasts the World Cup games on their 8 TVs. The city’s premiere Ethiopian restaurant will open its doors at 11 a.m., and happy hours are from 1-5 p.m. every game. Don’t miss out on the special African drinks.
- Evening Star Café (2000 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria) will open its doors daily at 10 a.m. to broadcast the games.
