1. The Toffee Club

1006 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 971-254-9518, toffeeclubpdx.com.

This congenial English pub is a hub for all things footie, so naturally, it'll be throwing a World Cup kickoff party, screening the France-South Korea game, along with DJ sets and a FIFA tournament.

2. 4-4-2 Soccer Bar

1739 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 503-238-3693, 442soccerbar.com.

There are soccer bars, and then there's 4-4-2, which has earned national recognition as one of the best places to watch games in all of America.

3. Mad Greek Deli

1740 E Burnside St., 503-232-0274, madgreekdeli.com.

Late owner Pantelis "Pondo" Kosmas established this Greek cafe-slash-sports bar as a Timbers Army hang, and it remains a great spot for international games as well. They'll have drink specials, and will be raffling off a television either when the U.S. team or wins the cup—whichever comes first.

4. North 45

517 NW 21st Ave., 503-248-6317, north45pub.com.

Soccer is meant to be experienced outdoors, and this Nob Hill staple's large patio screen is the closest you can get to being in the stadium without buying a plane ticket to France.

5. Beulahland

118 NE 28th Ave., 503-235-2794, beulahlandpdx.com.

At a glance, hardcore soccer fans might dismiss Beulahland as a "hipster dive," what with its cheap pints and novelty vending machine, but on game days it's one of the more raucous watching spots in town.
