Crown & Anchor This British staple is at its best when England’s Three Lions or the U.S. men take the pitch. Expect standing room only, ample beer and an awesomely rowdy crowd. 1350 E. Tropicana Ave., 702-739-8976; 4755 Spring Mountain Rd., 702-876-4733.

Crossroads at House of Blues Watch select games on the big screen while chowing on an around-the-world menu and taking down drinks made with Brazilian Leblon rum. Mandalay Bay, 702-632-7600.

Due Forni Thanks to this west-side pizza bar’s Argentine-raised Italian chef, the World Cup is a special event at Due Forni, which is opening early for morning games featuring the U.S., Italy or Argentina and serving up a special breakfast menu. 3555 S. Town Center Drive #105, 702-586-6500.

Rhumbar Mixologist Lillian Hargrove is debuting a new line of cocktails inspired by World Cup teams, and this Strip-front drink spot will also be passing out free shots for each goal scored. Start practicing your victory dance. Mirage, 702-792-7615.

McMullan’s Irish Pub Cheer on Bradley, Dempsey and Altidore with like-minded locals from the Vegas chapter of the American Outlaws supporters club. And remember, World Cup games are best watched with a full beer and a heaping plate of McMullan’s Irish nachos. 4650 W. Tropicana Ave., 702-247-7000.
