Premier League football is back and we’re delighted about that.
Sure, the league is pretty much done and dusted as the trophy makes its slow journey to Merseyside but there’s still plenty to be played for.
If, like us, you’ve missed football the past few months and want to head out, there are loads of places in the city to catch a game.
A few cold drinks and live sport? It would be rude not to. Here's a few places you can watch a game this weekend.
It may be a Man City supporters bar but this cool sports venue is open to fans of all teams, and sports too. With screens doted all over the room, deals on drinks and some great bar food too, you can easily settle in for a few hours and watch a game (or two).
Daily noon-9pm. Southern Sun Abu Dhabi, Mina Street (02 818 4888).
This laid back bar and restaurant is great place to catch a game and with daily happy hour promotions on drinks and all th bar bites you could want, including a menu of chicken wings, you can catch all the ation and enjoy a good time with friends.
Daily noon-3pm. Al Ain Palace Hotel, Corniche Road (02 678 0522).
If you’re looking for a proper Irish pub then you’ll be hard pushed to find something better than Fado. Head along when here’s a game on and you can see all of the action while enjoying a few cold drinks and food with regular deals on offer to keep you there for a spell.
Daily noon-9m. Oryx Hotel, Zayed the First Street, Al Khalidiya (02 692 2218).
It’s an Abu Dhabi institution and with its long opening hours, promotions, good food an vibe it’s always been a popular spot in this city. If you want to catch a game you can make your way to the basement bar and see all of the action while enjoying happy promotions and more to keep your energy levels up.
Daily noon-9pm. Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi, Hamdan Bin Mohammed Street (02 616 6132).
With a name like offside (no, we’re not going to explain the rule) you’d expect live sport to be on the screens. With great deals on drinks and food you can get your fill and watch the latest action as it unfolds on the pitch. At the moment, you can watch the Bundelisga, La Liga and Serie A games.
Sun, Tue, Wed, Thu 5pm-9pm, Fri-Sat noon-9pm. Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island (02 811 4342).
