Do you want to relive the hype of last summer’s Les Bleus victory with the equally talented Les Bleues, or support the powerhouse Team USA? The Women’s World Cup quarterfinal match between France and the United States plays out this Friday, June 28, at 12 p.m. (noon) Los Angeles time. To avoid stressing through this match alone, here are some places you can watch.
Adjacent to the LAFC Stadium, this unique venue will broadcast Friday’s game on its giant screen, and on another screen on the terrace. In addition to the modern decorations, you can enjoy the various food options; the Fields hosts multiple restaurants on several floors and has a solid bar menu. The establishment is a must for sports and food lovers. — The Fields, 3939 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles.
Calling itself as the most modern sports bar in the United States, this Long Beach establishment has enough screens that it’s difficult to know where to turn. Anyone supporting Team USA will be in good company here. Fans of Les Bleues: be ready to cheer loudly. — Legends Sports Bar, 5236 E. Second St., Long Beach.
The advantage of this Brentwood bar is that if you’re disappointed with the outcome of the match, you can do something to get your mind off the game and play some pool — that’s what the venue is known for. — Q’s Billiard Club, 11835 Wilshire Blvd., Brentwood.
On its two floors and its small backyard, both full of TV screens, the Los Feliz pub definitely meets the expectations of soccer fans looking for a good ambiance. You won’t be disappointed by the wide variety of beers and dishes on the menu (we recommend the quesadilla). — 1739 Public House, 1739 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz.
In the South Bay, Underground Pub & Grill is the HQ for sports fans (MLB, NFL, UFC, boxing, NBA, and more). On Friday, as they have done since the beginning of the competition, they will give priority to the Women’s World Cup on their screens. — Underground Pub & Grill, 1332 Hermosa Ave., Hermosa Beach.
For Silver Lake regulars, sports are synonymous with 33 TAPS. You can cheer on Les Bleues or Team USA with enjoying nachos, pancakes, or burritos. — 33 TAPS, 3725 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles.
