Default Where to go out to watch the W. Cup and USA?

Are there any great bars showing soccer games in the city? Specifically, where would be a good spot to watch the US England with more Americans present than Brits?

Thanks.

With more Americans that Brits? You'll be lucky. You are outnumbered around 10:1 in Dubai and most of you don't follow the beautiful game.

Every bar with a TV screen will be showing the games.

I concede both points. But, I'm new here, and a recommendation for a good watering hole with big screens would be most helpful.

Which part of town? There are heaps of places that will be showing it, not just the usual bars. Many hotels will be setting up rooms with big screens as well.

Sorry have to dash off, but go and but this week's Time Out as they are doing a World Cup special, including a booklet and a list of places showing games.

I'm an American looking to watch some football as well. Since I live in Sharjah, I won't head down to JBR/etc. to join, rather I'll probably head to Ajman to watch (maybe [email protected] City). Not a big fan of a pub full of drunk Brits and sporting events. The last time I went - Andy Roddick crushed poor Andy Murray @ Wimbledon as Dubai was about to enter into July 4th. I think I'll avoid situations like that again ("Go America!" doesn't go well when there are 2 Americans in the place)

I bought the World Cup Time Out today, and as Elphaba said - everywhere is showing it EXCEPT Left Bank in Souk Al Bahar. They are having "footie widow nights".

I'll also probably watch some non-weekend matches @ my place if you are interested as well. ESPN via slingbox from the states. just msg me.
