The Sportsman's Arms
Time Out Says
This aptly-named gastropub, looking out onto the courts of the International Tennis Centre in Zayed Sports City, is a perfectly placed port of call for those who have been working up a sweat.
But it is well worth a trip out to the sporting hub to soak in the vibes here, even if exercise hasn’t been on the menu.
The Irish-American inspired spot not only has great views of the impressive complex, but you can catch live action on the bank of screens situated over the rows of long tables and in the snug booths for those wanting a more intimate experience.
During the cooler months, the pretty outdoor terrace is a must for those looking to relax and unwind and there is even a soft play area for the kids.
We are impressed by the extensive food menu, boasting burgers and pizzas as well as main course bites such as salmon fillet, pan roasted chicken breast and glazed beef cheeks, while the bar is kept well stocked with a variety of craft hops, shorts and grape.
The Sportsman’s Arms is an ideal spot to catch up with friends over the footie, enjoy a family meal or let your hair down for the night.
It is more than a match for the best sports bars in the city.
