Where to watch Wimbledon 2019 in Dubai: garden on 8

What a tournament Wimbledon has been so far. It only took mixed doubles partners Serena Williams and Andy Murray over an hour to beat Andreas Mies and Alexa Guarachi on Saturday, with the big-name duo's quality too much for their opponents.

Watching it at one of our top places in Dubai? We’re adding one more to that list, and it’s the now fully air-conditioned rooftop bar, garden on 8.

If you’re up for some strawberries and cream, this is your top spot.

Media One Hotel’s rooftop venue is a great venue, especially now with a fully air-conditioned tent on its spacious terrace, which is where it has its massive screen showcasing all those serves and volleys.

Just for Wimbledon, the rooftop spot has upped its game with its own take on the British tradition of strawberries and cream. For AED39, the dessert uses a white chocolate base filled with cream and fresh strawberries, all with what appears to be a tennis ball on top. We’re intrigued.

That’s not all, as garden on 8 also puts on a happy hour everyday with two-for-one on house drinks between 4pm and 8pm.

If you don't want to on your feet, be sure to get yourself a table by calling ahead.

When: Saturday-Wednesday, noon-midnight; Thursday-Friday, noon-3am
