The Trophy Room is an all-new sports bar at the Fairmont on Sheikh Zayed Road. It’s on the right of the lobby as you enter. You wouldn’t know if I hadn’t told you because there’s no sign, only a floor standing chalkboard. The interior of the bar-restaurant is dominated by a massive projection screen, plus there are a number of LCD’s all over the place. The rest of the ambience is more wine bar than beer bar. This is definitely an establishment for the grownups.
I haven’t tried their grub, liquids only. Their happy hour runs from the early afternoon well into the evening…every day. But prices are steep. This is not a cheap bar. The staff though are friendly and the bartenders generous with the bar-munches. If you’re looking for a wine bar type atmosphere to have a drink with colleagues, this place is perfect. If you want to let your hair down and go to town with your friends though, I’d consider other options.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
