Sport-centric bar with ample TVs on Sheikh Zayed Road

There’s no shortage of competitors vying to become your place of choice to catch a match on Sheikh Zayed Road, and amid the noise you might have missed the latest on the scene.

Since opening last summer, Trophy Room has become a steady member of the team. It’s not going to win the league any time soon, but there are enough TVs, and speedy enough staff, to make it a fair bet if you’re on the Jumeirah side of Sheikh Zayed Road.

Set on the ground floor of Fairmont Dubai, it’s a small space, and not a particularly characterful one, but its 11 screens allow it to show everything from football to basketball at the same time. And if your game isn’t anywhere to be seen, staff will happily flip through the channels.

Prices aren’t cheap, with pints from AED47 up to AED55, but let’s not forget this is the Fairmont, in the centre of the city, and a daily happy hour from 5pm to 8pm, with certain pints priced at AED32, certainly helps. (Though perhaps less so for those late kick-offs.).

If all you’re after is a quick drink or to park up for the second half, Trophy Room does the job. For anything else, there are stronger sides to pick.
