The Sportsman’s Arms gastropub opens at Zayed Sports City



A new American-Irish gastropub called The Sportsman's Arms has just opened in Zayed Sports City on the first floor of the International Tennis Stadium.
During the soft opening phase, the licensed pub will open from 5pm every night and offer 50 per cent off all food. From September 16 onward, it will open daily from 8am.
The Sportsman's Arms will serve breakfast, coffee, tea, lunch and dinner — and a family-friendly Friday brunch will launch soon. Expect typical pub fare on the menu such as honey treacle chicken wings, USDA black Angus burgers, Atlantic cod and chips and sticky toffee pudding.
There are floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the venue and large screen televisions and projector screens in the bar and lounge areas. The pub will soon open two terraces for alfresco dining in the cooler months. One terrace will overlook the tennis courts and playground; and the other terrace, somewhat separated from the restaurant, will have an area for children to play while parents dine.

How to wear a kandura

Dos

  • Wear the right fabric for the right season and occasion 
  • Always ask for the dress code if you don’t know
  • Wear a white kandura, white ghutra / shemagh (headwear) and black shoes for work 
  • Wear 100 per cent cotton under the kandura as most fabrics are polyester

Don’ts 

  • Wear hamdania for work, always wear a ghutra and agal 
  • Buy a kandura only based on how it feels; ask questions about the fabric and understand what you are buying

Keane on …

Liverpool’s Uefa Champions League bid: “They’re great. With the attacking force they have, for me, they’re certainly one of the favourites. You look at the teams left in it - they’re capable of scoring against anybody at any given time. Defensively they’ve been good, so I don’t see any reason why they couldn’t go on and win it.”

Mohamed Salah’s debut campaign at Anfield: “Unbelievable. He’s been phenomenal. You can name the front three, but for him on a personal level, he’s been unreal. He’s been great to watch and hopefully he can continue now until the end of the season - which I’m sure he will, because he’s been in fine form. He’s been incredible this season.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s instant impact at former club LA Galaxy: “Brilliant. It’s been a great start for him and for the club. They were crying out for another big name there. They were lacking that, for the prestige of LA Galaxy. And now they have one of the finest stars. I hope they can go win something this year.”
