There are plenty of sports bars and pubs for you to enjoy the games, with some quality food too – so here are 10 to try.
10. UBK, Movenpick JLT
Hellooooo metre-long hot-dogs and quality pub food.
Plus the booths have little private screens so you can enjoy the games as a group.
9. McGettigan’s Pubs
One of the footy go-to venues, every McGettigan’s is rammed with tv screens playing all the important games.
PLUS they have happy hour til 8pm, so that’s handy!
8. Zero Gravity, JBR
Zero Gravity is known more for its epic music festivals and the like, but it’s also a top spot to watch the games, in the upstairs sports lounge, with a big screen. There’s also happy hour from 5-8pm, so that’s a plus!
This Mexican joint is of legendary proportions – thanks to its freshly made guac, delish Mexican food and lively atmosphere.
Deffo handy for those around the Jumeirah area.
Barasti does many things – and it does sport bloody well.
With the HUGE big screen on the upper level, and screens dotted throughout the massive establishment, it’s a fave for sport lovers.
Three of the world’s sportiest nations combined – South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
This one is great for the rugby in particular, with plenty of sporting memorabilia around the place to get you in the mood.
4. Bidi Bondi
With cracker drink deals, this Aussie surf-shack inspired bar is a hot fave for Aussies around the Palm.
Plus it plays all the big games, including (of course) the Aussie Rules matches.
Girders is a classic – and for good reason.
With a tv WALL (seriously) and massive picnic tables on the terrace, it’s just the right atmosphere for those who want to watch the game AND have a bit of banter.
2. Bridgewater Tavern, JW Marriott Marquis
With a spacious terrace, and spanning over two floors, the Bridgewater Tavern is a classy kind of sports bar.
It has plentiful MASSIVE screens so you won’t miss a moment of the action, and the food is top-notch.
1. Lock Stock & Barrel, Barsha Heights & JBR
These two American-saloon inspired bars are loads of fun, with the after-party getting REALLY rowdy after games.
It’s got a huge main screen above the stage at each venue and plenty of seating. You’ll probably end up here all night though!
