Here’s your guide to the best spots in the STL for World Cup viewing.

Guidos On The Hill
5046 Shaw Ave.
St. Louis, MO 63110
(314) 771-4900
www.guidosstl.com

Guidos is a strange blend of old-school Italian restaurant with Spanish tapas bar, which works perfectly for soccer viewing. You can drink a beer or some sangria, nibble on tapas when you get hungry and enjoy the Spanish owner’s enthusiasm for the game. You can’t really appreciate the Spanish passion for soccer until you’ve experienced it firsthand. Guido’s offers a cozy, enthusiastic place to watch the World Cup every year.
