Time Out Says
To its credit, Focus Bar at Hyatt Place Dubai does try to make itself stand out with its artsy interior designs and buy two, get one free deals on hops, but it comes out of left field when we realise the bar is literally attached to its café counterpart – a standard all-day dining spot.
We can’t imagine cheering on a match while people are trying to eat a leisurely dinner. Not that we could anyway, as the three TVs screening sports are drowned out by the tunes, and can only be seen around the three pool tables. Don’t expect any Premier League or World Cup games either, these sports are more background noise while playing pool.
If you’re looking for a deal though, there’s a daily happy hour running from 4pm until 8pm, serving up a 15 percent discount.
Maybe in time Focus will pick up, but at the moment the only reason to visit this sports bar is if you’re staying in this Deira hotel.
WHAT IS IT...
An oddly placed hotel sports bar
Staying at the hotel and up for a game of pool? Just don’t expect a lot of matches to watch
