Thumbs up Pubs / Bars showing the 6 nations rugby

Hi All,

Off to Dubai for business tomorrow night for 6 day trip and don't want to miss the rugby over the weekend.
If possible can someone direct me to a bar that will be showing the games.
Staying in a hotel at the entrance to the Palm.
Would really appreciate some direction on this one......hopefully somewhere that sells Guinness!!
Many thanks

Thanks for the that, the Irish Village looks good but not sure about TV.

it's not the best for watching sport - I know nowt about rugby, there'll be a southerner with a turned up collar along in a minute to advise you - there's plenty bars nearer to your hotel

McGettigans (there are 2 - the JLT one is better for where you will be staying) will show the rugby for sure - Irish bar with outdoor area only 5 mins by taxi from where you are.

Barasti is almost a walk from where you mention - virtually sure to show the match on a massive (like 6x4m outdoor) screen plus loads of LCD screens inside.

IV and Dubliners good places but a bit far

Nessassie (or whatever it's called) is really good but a bit far-ish

The Underground at Habtoor Grand just a couple mins up the road will have the game on and a happy hour...

As long as there are no Aussies asking why the score isn't 42-37
