There aren’t so many bars in this corner of Barsha and that probably explains why this sports bar is rarely empty, even when there is not a big match being played. Pass through the brightly lit lobby of the Hollday Inn and step inside to find a large square bar sitting right in the centre of a dark, windowless room with discreet booths and low sofas on the periphery. Despite the glitzy appearance (glass panelling, mirrored walls, low lighting) this is very much a sports bar. A chalkboard outside announces upcoming fixtures, a giant projector screen takes up one wall and further TVs (nine in total) are built into booths and other areas.
