July 4th World Cup update:
Online sales is closed but there are plenty of tickets left for the outdoor location!
The restaurant however has reached capacity!
Dear fans, at the moment we wish we'd be ZEUS Schneider and could send the rain away but between 11am-2pm chances of rain are 50%. At our Open Air screening site on East 23rd and the East River, there is a small chance that our satellite dish might experience blackouts during this time, however, we have a DSL line with an official ESPN streaming backup in place for this situation.
Both places, SolarOne @ 23rd St and FDR AND Zum Schneider Restaurant are being prepared and ready to screen the FRA-GER game at 12 noon. Your tickets will be honored at both places. If Zum Schneider Ave C reaches capacity the following neighbor bars are screening the game and are ready to welcome you: Kafana, Esperanto, Eddie & Wolf, Cafe Cambodia, Vasakas/Horseshoe bar.
We will have the outdoors site open and operational for the rest of the day and are very confident that we can screen the 4pm game between BRA-COL on the large LED Screen plus our two 60" plasma screens without any problems.
We hope for your understanding of the situation and wish you a great time anywhere anyway.
Thank you! Obrigado! Prost!

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 12x16 ft (3.5m x 6m) 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.
We are showing ALL World Cup games at Zum Schneider, except for the outdoor screenings. During these "public viewings" at Solar One, our restaurant will be closed. For more information and a complete schedule please visit nyc.zumschneider.com
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.
