The 6 Nations is kicking off very soon and rugby fever is already in the air.

1. McGettigans - Cluster J, JLT/ DWTC

The go-to Irish bar is one of the best of the bunch in Dubai when it comes to watching live sporting events. Sit indoors or outdoors (so many TV screens and the newly revamped JLT garden is unreal) and order from their award-winning menu.

Expect lots of people and a lively atmosphere.

2. Barasti Beach Bar

This mega beachside bar has a LOT of TV screens as well as one one giant LED screen so there is almost always a guarantee to get a decent view of the match.

They also happen to serve up some great pub grub too!

3. Girders, JBR

Good old Girders. Located in the heart of JBR, this space has managed to transform itself into an incredibly realistic beer garden, with a seriously good pub grub menu on offer - if you live in the area, this should be your go-to for the entire championship.

4. Dhow & Anchor - Jumeirah Beach Hotel

This award-winning British gastropub lets you choose between watching the game on a huge (brand new) outdoor LED screen or sit inside where there are floor to ceiling windows with an uninterrupted view of the Burj Al Arab.

5. Quantum Sports Bar - Melia Hotel

So, a chic Spanish style hotel might not necessarily make mind to watch sports but if you are looking for a classier option, look no further.

You get beautiful views of the city from the rooftop pool bar and it is a great place to wind down after the game.

6. Spike Bar - Emirates Golf Club

Spike Bar at Emirates Golf Club has 16 screens around the venue and a 3-metre giant screen, so you’ll never miss a moment. Choose from relaxed chairs, sofas or cosy wood-panelled booths.

Plus, get a burger and refreshing pint of brew for just AED89 during the games.
