Pubs: World Cup Games

  • BlackFriar Pub

    2621 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-953-01616http://blackfriarpub.comA beer-lover’s haven, BlackFriar Pub offers a deep and ever-changing selection of brews, with nightly specials. Unfortunately, some of the servers can be appallingly inattentive and ignorant of the beers, and the Uptown location attracts a monochromatic crowd of douchebags, dudebros and the infamous $30K millionaire. More >>

    Frankie’s Sports Bar and Grill

    3227 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-999-8932http://frankiesbar.comFrankie’s is clearly trying hard to distinguish itself from the thousands of other generic sports bars in town, and almost manages to do so. The menu is loaded with attitude and jokes such as calling its wraps “Rapper’z” (“All Rapper’z served with subpoenas”). But considering the mammoth serving sizes of burgers, nachos and other typical bar food, they can get away with it. Once the novelty of the menu wears off, dozens of televisions and video trivia screens compete for your attention. Also, if there’s not a game on, chances are good that you’ll have the place to yourself. More >>

    Humperdink’s

    2208 W. Northwest Hwy Dallas, TX 75220
    214-358-4159http://humperdinks.comIf you find generic bro-bars slightly depressing, Humperdink’s may not be for you. Sports bars can be hit-or-miss, but chain sports bars inevitably seem to have a manufactured enthusiasm, as if they’re all designed from a blueprint with blank areas that say “Install local sports team banner here.” Of course, none of that matters after a few beers. And that’s what sets Humperdink’s apart–not only is it an all-purpose bar offering food, karaoke and big-screen televisions, but each location also boasts its own brewery, plus a small but well thought-out selection of other craft beers. In fact, the beer is good enough that you may want to get one of the 100-oz. “Beer Towers,” a man-sized glass tube with a spigot at the bottom that requires a minimum of three people to order. The beer and the friends may be needed if you’re going to brave the karaoke stage. More >>

  • 197Idle Rich Pub

    Idle Rich Pub

    2614 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-965-9926http://idlerichpub.comTurns out the term “Idle Rich” has a double meaning, as it is a slang name for beggars in owner Feargal McKinney’s native Ireland. In the case of the bar, it’s a coy way of saying all are welcome. That was indeed the case on a recent visit. There were millionaires, sure–both the real deal and the $30,000 version. But there was also a guy sporting a foot-tall mohawk who didn’t get a second glance. The menu lists a few fancy-pants items like pate and the aforementioned cheese boards, but there’s plenty of meaty, deep-fried and greasy grub too: calamari, cheese fries, burgers and fish and chips. In fact, such stomach-coating fare is pretty much all that’s available after 11 p.m. Steamed mussels were a highlight–largely due to the accompanying “frites” (French fries in American) and spicy mayonnaise. The beer and whiskey selection is extensive, with even premium offerings reasonably priced. Added bonus: the menu’s helpful and occasionally smart-ass descriptions. Example: “Corona-Miles away from unusual.” The crowd tends to be somewhat douche-friendly. But the music–Pixies, Nirvana, Pavement, Beastie Boys and the occasional contemporary indie-rock hit–will drown out their inane conversations. And the food makes it more than worthwhile. More >>

    The Old Monk

    2847 Henderson Ave. Dallas, TX 75206
    214-821-1880http://oldmonkdallas.comAs the uptown crowd slowly migrates east of Central Expressway, Henderson Avenue appears to be getting a silicone makeover. But the bastion of normalcy holds strong inside the walls of the Old Monk. The Old Monk boasts an impressive scotch menu with over 40 to choose from, and an even more impressive beer menu with 17 craft beers on tap, and over 60 in the bottle. Think of the Old Monk as an oasis for a person of simple style and complex taste.More >>

    214-887-3600http://trinityhall.tvAn incredible selection of whiskey and beer, quick bartenders and excellent pub grub make this authentic Irish bar worth a visit despite pricey drinks and its location in the Yuppie-fied Mockingbird Station. Polished, well-lit and attracting a clean-cut crowd, it’s definitely no dive. But if you’re trying to track down a hard-to-find beer, in the mood for some authentic Irish folk music or feel like competing in the Sunday Night Pub Quiz, this is the place to be. More >>

    Zaguan World Bakery and Cafe

    2604 Oak Lawn Ave. Dallas, TX 75219
    214-219-8393http://www.zaguanbakery.com/In Dallas’ Oak Lawn district sits a Latin favorite, Zaguan. The restaurant’s adobe exterior features a narrow entryway that leads to a peaceful sanctuary of a dining room. Peaceful, that is—until a big soccer match is underway, in which case it’s hard to find a seat amongst the rambunctious crowd. Enjoy cold beers from south of the border, and some delicious Columbian coffee and pastries. The menu is comprised of traditional South American staples, which are great rewards for being adventurous enough to try them. More >>
