Where to Watch Football this Summer

With the football season in full swing, we know you may be on the lookout for places to catch the latest games, and perhaps score some great food in the meantime. With Ramadan coinciding with the Euro Cup, finding venues that are open during the day may prove to be a tricky shot. Which is why we have done all the legwork to make sure that you can just sit back and pick your spot from a list of trusted bars and restaurants.

So pick your team mates, choose your favourite game and head down to one of these awesome venues to catch some sporting action this summer.

Reform Social Bar & Grill, The Lakes

We may have just found you and your mates your permanent spot for this summer’s Euro Cup. Head over to this gem of a venue hidden away in The Lakes where a fully air conditioned tent will be raised in the orchard to house all the footie fans of Dubai. Catch all of your favourite games of the Euro Cup complete with live commentary. You’ll be happy to hear that Reform will also offer a new and reformed deli menu from 12-4pm this Ramadan, as well as a full a la carte from 12pm onwards.

Lock, Stock & Barrel, Grand Millennium Hotel, TECOM

This may be a newbie on the block but they sure have arrived with a bang. Apart from being a hot spot for the night owls of this city, Lock Stock, as it’s been nicknamed, has also become a great sports destination thanks to its many TV screens showing all the latest games. There are also some larger format screens for those who want to feel even closer to their favourite footie players. We recommend making a booking to get a good seat, and enjoy their easy-to-share dishes that include metre long flatbreads and other popular pub grub.

Yots, Dubai Marina Yacht Club

One of our top picks for an after-work catch up with friends, Yots, will be showing the Euro Cup this summer across their TV screens. Opening at 7pm during Ramadan, Yots offers a chilled and casual environment with great views of the luxurious yacht marina. Come on a Thursday to take advantage of their delicious ribs and chips promotion!

Garden on 8, Media One Hotel, Media City

For the Media City devotees, everyone’s local hangout, Media One hotel, will show sorts across TV screens at Garden on 8. Thinking it’s too hot to huddle around a TV screen outdoors? Fret not, the team behind this laid back hops garden have installed air conditioning for the scorching summer months to keep you cool as a cucumber. They will open from sunset till midnight during Ramadan and in addition to a wide selection of hops and cider, they also have a kick-ass food menu and shisha on offer.

Nezesaussie Grill, Al Manzil, Downtown

The ultimate sports destination in Downtown continues to add more flavour to their existing weekly calendar of events! Be right in the thick of the action of the UEFA Cup and catch all the games on one of their nineteen giant TV screens. Whether you’re looking for company to support your favourite team, the chance to have some competitive fun or a buzzing atmosphere, there’s a place for everyone and every game at Nezesaussi Grill this football season. Special bucket and drinks deals will be available during each game!
