Review: Cool, lively sports bar with top food
  • 1

Time Out Says

Time zones can really tick people off – particularly if it affects them keeping track of their favourite football team. Cheering on your heroes in the Premier League and Champions League can lead to a late date spent at your local haunt now there are four hours separating the UK and the UAE.

But a bit of extra time is no bad thing at Velocity, a buzzing bar that really hits its stride in the evening.

The sleek and stylish venue is more than just a sports bar – though the multitude of big screens on display mean you need never miss a minute of the action, wherever it’s taking place in the world.

Once the final whistle has been blown, you really should stick around as Velocity transforms into a vibrant late-night venue featuring a resident DJ, toe-tapping tunes and a wide selection of mixed drinks, hops and other beverages, many available at knockdown prices thanks to the bar’s generous selection of happy hour deals.

In fact, this is a bar where it’s happy hour whenever you fancy turning up.

Selected brews are available from Dhs20 until 10pm all week, while, on a Monday, grape is served up for Dhs10 (6pm-9pm).

Until Sunday December 24, customers can get beverages for just Dhs10 (from 4pm-7pm) by sporting a Christmas jumper. It’s this inventive, very hospitable approach to promotions that keeps the crowds regularly coming back day and night.

Whether you’re looking for a lively venue to catch a match, a good post-work spot for a cheap pint or want a hip hangout for a night out, Velocity hits its target each and every time.

The bottom line

The upscale venue offers a top night out.
