CLOSED AND RELOCATING WITHIN THE SOFITEL DOWTOWN

Dubai has tonnes of sports bars, and with so many offering top deals, multiple screens and a great vibe, finding the right place can be a challenge.

Player Sports Bar is a relatively new addition to the scene, but this beast is already one of the stand-out contenders.

If you’re looking to watch the footy at the weekend, it’s a great place to try. This 31st floor bar is striking, from the moment you walk in. Greeted with a wall-sized image of Egyptian football superstar Mo Salah, you’ll also be welcomed with a wall of noise, with music pumping out and the sound of fans defying their morning alarm clocks for an evening of live sports action.

There’s a decent daily happy hour, too, where you’ll get selected hops for Dhs20, and 50 percent off selected mixed drinks from 3pm until 7pm. However, if you miss it, fear not, as drinks are reasonably priced the rest of the time, too, at around Dhs35.

You can’t fail to be struck by how much effort this place has put into its décor. The amount of flags, jerseys, posters and more is immense. They’re everywhere. And, refreshingly, it’s not just focused on football – whether you’re a rugby, cricket, tennis or golf fan, Player Sports Bar dedicates different areas of the venue to certain sports.

There’s also a vast number of screens. More than a dozen flatscreens plus a projector screen line the walls. too. The bar sprawls a long way down, with a view of the city from the floor-to-ceiling windows providing alternative sights to the game, too.

Plus there are two pool tables, foosball, darts and more to keep you entertained. This is one player that has made a quick impact since its arrival.

The bottom line
TVs and deals. What more do you need?
