Get free drinks during the Rugby World Cup at D&A

This Friday (September 20) marks the beginning of the 2019 edition of the Rugby World Cup and to coincide with the tournament, bars and pubs across Dubai and coming out with cracking deals and wacky offers.

Well, Alexander McNally, the new bar manager at Jumeirah Beach Hotel’s popular D&A, has only gone and upped the ante.

Ahead of each game (yes, all 48 of them) McNally will declare which team he’s cheering on for the win, and has promised that every time his chosen team loses the match, the round will be on him, with a free drink to everyone in the venue.

We love a bit of healthy competition but forget New Zealand versus South Africa this Rugby World Cup, it’s time to beat the boss at the British-inspired sports-bar-meets-gastropub.

With seven indoor screens, a brand-new big “light reflective” screen on the outdoor terrace, views of the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, a lively atmosphere and a daily happy hour from 3pm until 7pm featuring one or two premium beverages you’re unlikely to find at other happy hours in the city, we foresee this being a popular spot to catch all the rugby action.

Throughout the tournament there will also be a ‘scratch and win’ competition with top prizes up for grabs and during the quarter-finals the gastropub will be offering up t-shirt customisation for all you keen rugger fans out there.

We’ve rounded more places to watch all the action unfold and all the best deals across the city to tackle here.
Open daily 9am-2am. Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Umm Suqeim www.jumeirah.com (04 432 3232).
