Since the game starts at 9 a.m. you'll have to hold off on boozing it up at restaurants or bars until 10 a.m., which is when it's legal to serve alcohol with food. Also, the Cowboys play at noon, so if you play your cards right you can slide from futball to football.
We'll continue to post updates.
Places to Catch the World Cup Final
324 W. Seventh St. (Bishop Arts District)
We've contacted this Argentine restaurant and bar in the Bishop Arts District for details on World Cup finals plans; it has hosted previous watch parties, so we're assuming Sunday will be a big day here. As soon as we have details, we'll update. For previous games, however, reservations were a must, so you might want to call 214-780-7959 to snag a seat at one of the truly Argentinian bars in Dallas. (Update: Chimichurri is not opening early for the World Cup game Sunday.)
2621 McKinney Ave. and 6341 La Vista Drive
Both Blackfriar pubs, the original on McKinney Avenue and the new spot in Lakewood, will open at 8 a.m. Sunday morning, with the World Cup "screened exclusively with sound on." There's no entry fee and parking is free. Expect a full brunch menu starting at 10 a.m. and a raffle at halftime.
Community Beer Co.
3110 Commonwealth Drive
The shiny new brewery north of downtown is hosting a watch party starting at 8 a.m. Sunday. The kitchen will be open for a special morning menu with mimosas to boot. The breakfast taco bundle is $14 for three tacos with a beverage throughout. The lunch menu will begin at 10 a.m., with the $10 Burger Bundle available for the Cowboys games at noon.
2818 Greenville Ave.
This classic Irish bar on Greenville Avenue will open at 9 a.m. on Sunday. Dubliner typically serves brunch on Sundays along with $5 mimosas and bloody marys. Check the Facebook page for updates, but you can guarantee this will be a fun place to catch the match.
2800 Bledsoe St., Fort Worth
El Chingon, Fort Worth's "Bad Ass Mexican" restaurant, will have futbol-inspired cocktails and extended brunch offerings. Visit the World Cup page on its website for a full schedule of events.
2823 McKinnon St. (Harwood District)
We've reached out to Harwood Arms for details, but this British pub with a big bar in the middle of the space has been hosting parties throughout the World Cup. (Update: Harwood Arms is opening at 8:30 a.m. Sunday.)
8518 Plano Road
Lochland's is a sister pub to The Dubliner. Doors open at 9 a.m. and the kitchen starts cooking at 10 a.m. on Sunday. The regular brunch menu includes a little bit of everything (pancakes, French toast, smoked salmon or traditional breakfast).
2100 Greenville Ave.
We recently got a first look and love the warm neighborhood vibes here. The beer selection hails from Belgium, Germany, France, Italy and the Czech Republic. On Sunday Meyboom will open at 8:45 a.m. and offer $2 off draft beers and an $8 espresso martini. There's a menu of upscale European-ish bar bites too.
The Londoner Pub
The new Londoner at Mockingbird Station is hosting a third-place watch party on Saturday at 9 a.m. (doors open at 8 a.m.). No reservations are needed for this game; it's first come, first served. We don't see anything yet about the final match, but have reached out to the venue and will update as soon as we hear back.
Peticolas Brewing Co.
1301 Pace St.
Part of the Peticolas identity is based on English soccer fandom. A recently released IPA, Spar in Qatar, was created just for this very special occasion. The brewery is opening at 8 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday for the third-place and final games. Taco vendors will offer sustenance.
