For the first time, NYC will experience what is common practice in Germany and all over Europe:
Zum Schneider, the cult Biergarten on Ave C, is organizing what they call in Germany an "open air" “public viewing”. On June 26th, July 4th & 5th (quarter finals) and July 13th (final), the event space called Solar One right by the East River @ East 23rd St will be turned into an OPEN AIR FAN ZONE. While the screening of the games on an 16x12 ft (5 x 3.5m) LED screen will be the main attraction, the riverside will be transformed into an energy-charged open air fan zone, with extensive decorations, live entertainment, incl. live music, samba rhythms, and DJs playing soccer anthems, creating a true World Cup atmosphere.
German Bratwurst, Pretzels, Brazilian churrasco and more will be served alongside world class German/Bavarian beer and soft drinks.

When & Where
Zum Schneider was opened on August 19, 2000 by Sylvester Schneider, a native of Weßling am Weßlinger See, Bavaria, and long-time resident of Alphabet City.
"I missed summers in the beergarden with friends, family and people of all kinds, coming together to relax and celebrate life. Embracing those yearnings, I created Zum Schneider".
In May 2012, Sylvester opened a sister location in Montauk, NY.
Sylvester also founded the Oompah band Mösl Franzi and the JaJaJa's where he is the frontman Mösl Franzi. The band performs during Oktoberfest, May Day, Anniversary Parties, and on other occasions.
During Karneval/Fasching, he transforms his restaurant into a unique cabaret/party space, every year with a new theme.
