McGettigan's DWTC

Sizeable Irish bar on Sheikh Zayed Road

Time Out Says

Irish pub chain powerhouse McGettigan’s is well known for its lively nightspots across the emirates (and beyond). While they all feature the brand’s trademark booths and contemporary wooden décor, each pub has its own distinct feel and offering.

For McGettigan’s DWTC, it’s the live music setup that makes it stand out. With an elevated stage behind the bar, the venue’s roster of musicians and DJs regularly form the centrepiece of the experience. And just like sister outlets across the city, things are never livelier than immediately after Friday brunch, when punters spill in from restaurants around the city for a few drinks and a singalong.

But it’s not just about the weekend. Most nights of the week you’ll find nearby office workers and conference visitors propping up the bar to watch whatever sport happens to be on the TV – McGettigan’s shows a broad range.

This one is also home to a “secret garden” and  The Den, a separate bar upstairs filled with pool tables and TVs, ideal for those who like to play as they watch (and sip).

Daily deals include free drinks for ladies’ on Wednesday and Friday nights, Friday afternoon and Thursday night brunches and a Saturday (lunchtime) breakfast offer including three house drinks for Dhs109. There’s also competitive sporting action on Sundays and Tuesdays, with free-to-enter pairs and singles knockout darts nights starting at 8pm.

With so much going on, it’s little wonder McGettigan’s DWTC has become a stalwart of Sheikh Zayed Road’s bar scene.

So, spots or stripes?
