Best Sports Bars in Dubai to Watch Live Matches

Get everything you need to know about Dubai’s best sports bars, including drinks deals, happy hours, numbers of screens and extras, like pool tables

Whether you like the Premier League or the Premier League of darts, nothing can quite beat watchingsport in a big group in a busy bar. Well, apart from being there, of course.

But while living in Dubai we have to watch top level sport from afar (most of the time!), there are plenty of places all over turn pandering to our inner sports star. From giant outdoor screens, to private booths with your own barman, you will find somewhere that suits your needs.

We might even suggest watching your team at a different venue every time they’re on…
