The 2018 FIFA World Cup takes place from June 14 to July 15 in Russia, and there’s no shortage of pubs and bars in Montreal that will air the games, from the group phase right through to the elimination rounds and the final. Here are some hot spots to catch the games.

Note that we can’t guarantee that every venue on this map will air every game, especially in the group stage of the Cup — not to mention that with time differences, some games start as early as 6 a.m. Montreal time. However, the venues on this map are generally planning to show many or most World Cup games that fit with their opening hours — call ahead to check if you’re unsure, and be aware that some places might open early for bigger games.

5889 Avenue Papineau, Montréal
QC H2G 2W5, Canada
(514) 274-4848
Visit Website

St-Tite microbrewery À La Fût set up shop in Montreal this winter — with a daily opening time of 1 p.m., it will screen the World Cup’s afternoon games on its 17 large screens.

2. Bruno Sport Bar

Copy Link
313 Rue Beaubien E, Montréal
QC H2S 1R9, Canada
(514) 271-8364
Visit Website

This go-to Italian sports bar is already a go-to spot for Premier League soccer football, so unsurprisingly, it will screen a hefty portion of the World Cup — and it opens at the bright hour of 8 a.m. daily (and serves coffee, too).

3. Caffè Italia

Copy Link
6840 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal
QC H2S 3C7, Canada
(514) 495-0059
Visit Website

Italy may not be in the running this time, but Caffè Italia in Little Italy will likely keep screening much of the FIFA action, proving that you don’t need booze with soccer. Bonus: it comes without the added tourists that might get in the way at spots like Mile End’s Olimpico.

4. Le Boudoir

Copy Link
850 Avenue du Mont-Royal E, Montréal
QC H2J 1X1, Canada
(514) 526-2819

Several notches fancier than your average sports bar is this Plateau spot, committed to airing various FIFA games. Open from 1 p.m. on regular days.

5. Les Folies

Copy Link
701 Avenue du Mont-Royal E, Montréal
QC H2J 1W7, Canada
(514) 528-4343

7. Bar L'Barouf

Copy Link
4171 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal
QC H2W 2M3, Canada
(514) 844-0119

Another hub for supporters of team France, Bar L’Barouf will throw open its doors exceptionally early where relevant, but do check in advance before showing up at 6 a.m. unannounced.

8. Ti-Agrikol

Copy Link
1840 Rue Amherst, Montréal
QC H2L 3L6, Canada

Haitian restaurant Agrikol’s little-sibling bar has transformed itself into the HQ for games featuring Latin American and African teams (it’ll show games with France, too), opening as early as 11 a.m. for applicable matches.

(514) 842-6301

The hub for Montreal’s Spanish contingent at the World Cup, this tapas-serving resto-bar on the Main will screen primarily Spain’s games in the group phase, and likely more games in the knock-out stage.

(514) 678-1862
Visit Website

This rather French Mile End sports spot is almost certain to be airing every France game, given its expat crowd — alongside much of the rest of the World Cup. Through June 24, it’ll open at 7:30 a.m. daily, extended hours after that are still TBD.

11. La Brasserie le Pois Penche

Copy Link
1230 Boulevard de Maisonneuve O, Montréal
QC H3G 1M2, Canada
(514) 667-5050
Visit Website

Perhaps your classiest option for catching games is this downtown French brasserie: grab some oysters, wine, and tartare, since Pois Penché will air the 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. games each day. Note that it’ll be a calmer atmosphere, with the sound on, of course, but not blasting.

12. McKibbin's Irish Pub

1426 Rue Bishop, Montréal
QC H3G 2E6, Canada
(514) 288-1580

Ireland may be out, but one of downtown’s go-to Irish pubs with ample screens says it’ll be showing World Cup matches, and even has TVs on its terrasse.

QC H3H 1M2, Canada
(514) 846-6673
