Dubai Marina’s Cargo launches anti-football deals for the World Cup
Escape the World Cup mania at the Pier 7 bar, with ongoing offers
Time Out Dubai staff
Not wild about the World Cup? If you’re part of the crowd that inwardly groans every time the football chatter starts up again, one Dubai Marina bar is offering a place of refuge for the big kick-off weekend.
Cargo, in Pier 7 tower, has launched a “Say No To Football” campaign, promising it won’t “get sucked into the football hype”, and will instead have “fun offers” for punters to enjoy.
From Thursday June 14, at the kick-off to every World Cup match (that it reminds guests it does not show) there will be two hours of two-for-one drinks available. And the offer continues throughout the whole month of sporting action.
Towards the end of the World Cup period, on Thursday July 12, Cargo will also be hosting an all-day Trade A Sock Party – all you need to do is hand over your football socks (or any sock, actually) and they’ll be exchanged for a complimentary house drink.
Of course, if you’re actively trying NOT to avoid the World Cup, there are dozens upon dozens of bars showing the games, with a huge range of deals on offer too – check them all out here. Cargo, Pier 7, Dubai Marina (04 361 8129).
