    Beaver & Mullet on Denman say they’ll be showing all the games, though it’s a smaller pub. My boyfriend’s Irish so we’ll be looking out for those games, I imagine Doolins will be showing them.

    I’m still looking for a place that a lot of Croatians are likely to migrate to, an official CHECKERED HOUSE if you will. Any information would be great, thanks!

    Thanks, Rebecca! We’re also introducing a foosball table into the room, and hosting foosball tourneys on June 10 & 16. Foosball matches during the UEFA matches! 🙂

    Hats off to Rebecca for including the Charlatan.

    Went there for the last match of FIFA, and it was a great locale.
    After the game, there was a spontaneous match on the street … about 50 socceroos got in on the fun.

    As far as other destinations, Commercial Drive will be a soccer hot spot.

    Get there (or any pub/eatery broadcasting the matches) early.

    Hey soccer fans from vancouver. We are a German familiy staying an additional day in vancouver spontaneoulsy. So, we are able and willing to watch the game Germany – Netherlands tomorrow in Vancouver Downtown. Can anyone give me an advice, where to go? Nice pub but with more “family friendly” than “aggressive” atmosphere would be appreciated. As we are visitors, a website and/or address would be find to find that plase 😉

    Thank you already in advance.

    Best regards,

    I have a maybe stupid additional question: Is it possible to watch the game in a pub with our children of 3 and 5 years old or are pubs generally not allowed for minors?

    So to come back to my question in my previous comment I should add that we have two children and of course we would like to go somewhere where children are accepted 😉
