Thanks to linoleum tile and bright fluorescent lights, watching games at this Iberian social club feels a bit like tuning in from your mom's spacious kitchenif she was serving up sangria and tapas. La National expects to be rocking when Raul and Co. take the field: Additional viewing for Spain, Brazil, and Argentina games will be available in the tango studio upstairs.

It's no wonder New York's Major League Soccer club chose this spot for its "meet the fans" night earlier this year. It's gorgeous, airy interior is completed by an iron-grated indoor balcony worthy of New Orleans. U.S. games are the only ones guaranteed to have volume, but there's incentive to watch the others, too. Anyone who samples each of the bar's 128 different brews during the Cup is entitled to an unspecified reward for the final. (We're guessing it's free food and drinks.)
