We have been to the Sports Café in the Fairmont a number of times. The staff have always been great and very accommodating e.g. showing football games that we asked for in advance. Its never too busy and the a/c is good. The food menu is not massive but its exactly what you are looking for.

We love this bar but it is a shame it’s so quiet (visitor wise) and they insist on playing awful music which isn’t by the original artist. We left one night because the music was so awful! The next time though they had a DJ so we stayed longer, enjoyed chatting with the staff and watched various sport whilst drinking fizz and beer - perfect. Why more people aren’t here is a mystery, it’s no more expensive than other bars, isn’t smokey, has a great selection of drinks and is very nicely done out. Great find.

This sports bar is very close to where I live so my expectations when it opened were very high. Waiters/Service - first class - good beers - Lots of TV's etc. Only one snag they insist on hiring a DJ who plays very loud house music to his own taste only. FIne if you are 18- 21 - except this group are not allowed to drink! I have commented on my last three visits - the Management don't listen - they would rather have an Empty bar.... I am not a winger 99% of my reviews are positive. But enough is enough.

Would be a fantastic local if I lived that way in Abu Dhabi.

Ronald was a quality waiter, setting is really nice - modern but focuses on the sports. Great big screens and projectors. Shawarma was delicious. Heineken a little cloudy but cleared up.

Great new bar.

We had a great evening here watching the 6 nations rugby.

The screens etc were exceptional. Lots of cold beers to choose from and a typical sports bar menu for when you are peckish. It ticked a lot of boxes!!

The bar staff and servers were very helpful but without being intrusive.
