Swanky new sports bar opens in Downtown Dubai

Player Sports Bar offers 50 percent off drinks all day, every day


Whether you’re gazing out at the Jumeirah coastline or diverting your stare towards the big match, a funky new sports bar has arrived – and it looks like it’s going to be a top new destination.

Player Sports Bar has arrived at the Sofitel Dubai Downtown, and we think it’s going to be a popular new hangout. Found up on the 31st floor, it’s already one of the city’s loftiest sports bars, and some huge floor-to-ceiling bay windows not only open up the bar to magnificent views, but also means this is a break from the dark and smoky sports bar stereotype.

With a main projector showing the big match, plus TV screens stapled to practically every piece of wall real estate, you’ll never really miss a kick off as the Premier League (and its European counterparts) reaches the season’s conclusion. Oh, and it’s here just in time for the 2018 World Cup which kicks off on Thursday June 14.

Beyond the screen-based action, though, there are a number of pool tables and foosball tables in play here too, in case you’re after a sports bar with some top bar sports.

But the bit we’re most excited about is the bar’s opening offer, running until further notice, which offers 50 percent off all drinks all day every day. With the bar open daily from noon until 2am (and 3am on Thursday and Friday), this is one new opening that we can’t wait to check out.

Open Sat-Wed, noon-2am; Thu-Fri, noon-3am. Sofitel Dubai Downtown, Downtown Dubai (04 503 6128).
