Posted on June 10, 2010. Filed under: Astoria | Tags: , |

According to one of my favorite readers,  in Astoria the Studio Square (35-33 36th St Astoria (718) 383-1001) beer garden will be playing the games. Here are some more places…

Here’s an email I received from New York Magazine on where to watch the World Cup. Athen’s Cafe in Astoria was one of the top places on the list. Here is what they said below. For more places to watch, check out

Athens Cafe
32-07 30th Ave., Astoria
, Queens ; 718-626-2164
Those cheering in Greek should stop in at Athens Café for nine plasma screens and all that Greek spirit. Located in the heart of exceedingly Greek Astoria, if the quaint cafe doesn’t suit your needs, just stroll down the block. Every TV will be tuned in on Greece .

The Daily News has a list of places in Queens to watch the World Cup too. For the full article in the Daily News go to-

Meanwhile- here is an excerpt from the article:


For hinchas – as Argentine fans are called – two steakhouses in Queens stand out:

El Gauchito, 94-60 Corona Ave., in Elmhurst, just a few yards from La Esquina Criolla, the intersection of Corona Ave. and Junction Blvd., is maybe the ultimate reference site of the local Argentine community.

Boca Juniors, 81-08 Queens Blvd., is a restaurant devoted to Argentina’s most popular soccer team; all eyes will be on young soccer god Messi, legendary player-turned-coach Maradona and assorted empanadas and chorizo.


In Astoria, try Malagueta, 25-35 36th Ave., and Favela Grill, 33-18 28th Ave.


Another Chilean alternative is San Antonio Bakery, 36-02 Astoria Blvd., in Astoria.

Thanks for the comment A… good to know! There are so many places… hard to catch all of them!

Studio Square is supposed to be hooked up big. And it’s outside. Bonus.
