CityMax Sports Bar review

Time Out visits possibly the sportiest bar in Dubai

If watching sports while drinking is your thing (read: you’re a man), then the Citymax Sports Bar is definitely worth a shout. Don your favourite team’s colours, pull yourself up to one of no fewer than seven TVs dotted around the bar, two of them big-screeners bookending the place, and you’ll be ready to roar your boys to victory – the bar shows English Premier League football, IPL cricket and rugby on the four-metre main screens every evening.

The brownish decor slightly resembles the inside of a working men’s club in the ’70s and the walls are otherwise adorned with cricket bats, football shirts and rugby balls, should you forget that you’re in a sports bar. But with nightly top-flight sport and cheap drinks – a pint of hops goes for a mere Dhs25 – who cares about carpets and curtains?
