With great food and drink deals to enjoy
Nine months of Premier League action has begun, so where do you plan to watch all of the games? Somewhere with good screens, a jovial atmosphere, and decent food and drinks? Here are three great places to watch the games in Dubai:
Barasti’s House of Whatever
The air-conditioned House of Whatever tent on Barasti Beach has 16 screens, plus a huge LED screen, and some incredible food and drink deals. On Sundays, stop by for Seven Dollar Sundays, where selected drinks are reduced to AED25 all day. Then there’s a chance to discuss the weekend action on Mondays from 4pm-9pm with the Mega Mondays deal, where five selected drinks cost AED120.
Gear up for the weekend again with the Whatever Brunch, every Friday from 1pm-4pm, costing AED199. Should set the scene for an action-packed, sporty couple of days.
The Lion by Nick & Scott
Dubai-based chefs Nick Alvis and Scott Price have offers for the city’s football fans at The Lion pub, located at the H Dubai hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road. Turn up wearing your team shirt on game day and you’ll get your first drink on the house.
Then you can warm up for the weekend action with brunch every Friday in August, which includes a football-themed quiz. The two-hour brunch package is AED399 per person, and for every additional hour you can enjoy unlimited drinks for AED99.
Celebrate or commiserate every Monday with a meal and unlimited drinks for one hour for AED99. Roast dinners are also being served at The Lion now seven days a week (AED95, or AED110 with a pint).
Qube Sports Bar
Located at The Meydan Hotel, this venue claims one of the largest screens in the city, with 16 LCD screens and projectors dotted around. Part of the five-star hotel next to the world-famous Meydan horseracing track, Qube has a sports-themed décor, with billiard tables, shuffle boards, football tables and dart boards. There is also an extensive à la carte menu, as well as pub favourites, including snacks, salads, pizzas and desserts.
If you plan to watch a Sunday game, you’ll love the Steak Sundays promotion here from 3pm-11pm. Get a rib eye with either a pint or glass of red for AED99, or a T-bone with the same for AED149.
