Got a Bad Case of World Cup Fever? Here’s Where to Go in SD, NE, IA and MN
Buzzfeed is famous for its lists and with The World Cup on the going on they rounded up the best bars in each state to watch the matches. Here are their picks for the best places to gather with your fellow American Outlaws (U.S. team super fans) in South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, and Minnesota.
For The 605 they chose Sioux Falls’ own The Gateway Lounge. Here is what they said:
Because they’re Sioux Falls’ World Cup Headquarters that’s why! The family owned bar has 15 flat screen TVs that will be sure to be tuned into all the action, plus a covered outdoor patio
The pick to watch The World Cup in Iowa is Donnelly’s Pub in Iowa City.
Donnelly’s Pub is an Irish bar located in downtown Iowa City that is the home to the American Outlaws in Iowa City. The bar will be offering $3.50 Heinekens and $6 Caipirinhas, the national drink of Brazil for the games.
If you are spending the competition down south the Buzzfeed pick for Nebraska is Barrett’s Barleycorn Pub and Grill in Omaha.
The classic Omaha local establishment has drink specials every night of the week and is home to the Omaha chapter of the American Outlaws. It features a bunch of flat screens and great bar food.
The place to be in The Cities is Brit’s Pub in Minneapolis.
The downtown Minneapolis institution opened its doors back in 1990 and has grown from a two room tavern into a massive multi-floor bar — that even includes a 10,000 sq. ft. lawn bowling green and an outdoor veranda overlooking it. The features and enormous outdoor space where they’ll be showing the World Cup on a massive projection screen.
Oh, by the way, we’re talking about soccer.
