10. The Irish Village, Garhoud

Big screens and lots of outdoor seating give Garhoud’s The Irish Village proper match day feels. Throw-in an AC tent for the summer months and you have a year all-rounder that’ll never let you down.

9. Bidi Bondi, Palm Jumeirah

An Aussie bar with an international feel, this cosy spots packs out for big matches. Go for the drinks, stay for the Saturday 4-drinks-1-meal-deal for AED125. #sundaywontthankyouforit

8. Offside, JA Hotel JBR

Previously Girders, this is a great beer-garden setup. It’s in JBR but hardly a tourist trap and a handy local for Marina folk ‘cus it happens to boast the biggest outdoor screen in the area. Fanatical about sports? Expect EPL, F1, Rugby, Cricket to Basketball, Ice Hockey, NFL and more.

7. Garden on 8, Media One Hotel

This is more for big match days, less proper pub vibes. Still, with the 6 Nations underway, this big screen in Media City is a handy one to know. It’s trestle table seating, get there early for a good spot.

More info about Garden on 8 here.

6. Headlines, World Trade Centre

Part biker bar, part sports bar, this is a cheap and cheerful Downtown bar, that features a men’s night (read: discount drinks) every Tuesday night#WINNING (even if your team’s not).

5. Bridgewater Tavern, JW Marriott Marquis

Business Bay is filled with clubs and restos, so Bridgewater is a welcome breath of fresh air for the Downtown / Business Bay folk. A sports bar through and through with a cosy feel and great food.

4. The Huddle Sports Bar & Grill, Al Barsha

This sports bar is a brand of CityMax, so wherever there’s a CityMax, you’ll find a Huddle (So: Al Barsha, Bur Dubai).

But the key to this spot is they do a GREAT job of appearing un-brandy. A classic watering-hole complete with pool table and darts board, this is the kinda place you’d hope to spend a day, engrossed in sports and you’ll completely forget about the outside world.

Hustling the locals for free pints

3. Kickers, Sports City

A great local for the Sports City/Motor City crowd. Kickers is located NEXT to FitRepublik, so if you workout you can congratulate yourself with a pint, straight after. Ideal. But, more importantly, it’s a home for live sports, coupled with a good mix of pub grub.

2. Barasti, Dubai Marina

For the big matches, this place is hopping. Not exactly a cosy pub nook, this is a mammoth venue with screens on the upper deck indoors along with a huge screen outdoors. With plenty of bar space, if you’re getting together with a group this is the handiest venue in town.

And drumroll for the number 1 sports bar in Dubai for 2020 (you’ve probably guessed it)

1. McGettigan’s, the OG

You’ll never be disappointed at McGett’s. Located at JLT, Souk Madinat, DWTC and JBR, they’ve nailed the cosy Irish pub feel while still accommodating sports fans with multiple screens and a guaranteed great atmosphere on big match days.
