You’ve waited four years for Brazil 2014 so you don’t want to miss the festival of football and miss out on the party. Tenerife has such a diverse mix of nationalities you will make plenty of new friends as you watch all the countries battle for the big prize. Here are some of the best places to follow the beautiful game.
La Pepa Food Market, Pasarela Oasis
Not quite as high as Sugar Loaf Mountain but up on the roof overlooking Los Cristianos the large open terrace will feature a giant 4 x 3 metre screen. The market shops sell food and beer from nearly as many countries as are reaching for the cup and there’s plenty of free parking below the shopping centre. With the kids enjoying the play zone you can even have a stress free penalty shoot out.
The Merry Monk, Apolo Centre (behind the main bus stops)
A couple of TV’s in the main bar will ensure you don’t miss the action when topping up. The large back room sports theatre will be at fever pitch with a giant projector screen and toasties are on sale at all times for 2.50 euros each – so much nicer than a half time orange
PLAYA DE LAS AMERICAS
O’Neill’s, Upstairs in Veronicas, Playa de Las Americas
Choose from 15 plasma screen TVs or the main big screen and you won’t miss any of the matches. Happy Hour drink prices during the games will keep you cool while the players puff and pant in Brazil. Celebrate afterwards with all the best dance tunes and resident DJ’s and an open air terrace.
The Toby Jug, San Eugenio Alto (near Aqualand)
With five screens to pick from, the biggest on the outdoor terrace, you won’t miss any key moments. Lots of drink offers, two spirits (Gordon’s, Bacardi, Whisky, Smirnoff) with draught mixer or beer buckets of six bottles of Dorada Red for 8.50, or Bud, Heineken, or Coronita for 10 euros. You might be glad of extra time.
The Bamboo Bar, Calle Flor de Pascua, Los Gigantes
The heart of the village will be pumping as the drama unfolds on a 42 inch whopper screen and another mere mortal-sized. Check out the line-ups on bucket meals for two featuring chicken nuggets, cheese burgers, or scampi. Happy Hour drink promotions will be extended from noon to cover all the games, and there’s always the outside terrace for the non converts.
Mega Rock Café at Mega Bowl, CC Fañabe 1, Calle Londres, Fañabe
Limber up with ten pin bowling or fill up with food and drink, all in air conditioned comfort. Wall to wall football with four 50 inch LED and three giant projector screens. Special offers of beer and a burger for 4.50 euros and free bowling for mums and kids during matches, get the whole family up for the cup.
PUERTO DE LA CRUZ
The Beehive Pub, Calle La Hoya
THE place to watch footie in Puerto de la Cruz, The Beehive will be buzzing with supporters from across the footballing nations and nobody holds back the volume. Two 55 inch screens inside and an outside terrace; a warm welcome from owner, Gregg; banter and punditry from Tiago, Todor and João, and excellent pies, chips and toasties. Who needs to go to Rio?
