Time Out Says

One of qatar’s oldest and most popular sports bar has a queue of people waiting to get in 15 minutes before it opens at 5pm.

The bar is complete with sport-themed wall décor from posters and wallpapers to memorabilia. There are more than 40 screens placed all around the bar and everywhere you look, you’re bound to catch a match of some sort at all times.

Not surprisingly, happy hour is on until 8pm and draught hops are included, too, priced between QR39 and QR50. Additionally, ever since the tax on health-damaging goods, Champions has introduced all-day happy hours on two specific hops brands priced at QR43 and QR45.

The bar food menu is quite extensive and very tasty from our regular visits here. We try the chicken wings and onion rings which are always on point as regards taste and crispiness.

An interesting change we’ve noticed on our return here after a long absence is the lack of smoke Champions was known (and disliked) for. We find out the entire bar has become a strictly non-smoking zone and an extension has been introduced, covered in glass. It’s a replica of the main bar area with a table football and a large pool table.

Seating options are plenty – bar stools, high tables, regular tables on an elevated platform for those who want to focus on food and American-style mini booths with couches on either side which are a just a little bit more private.

There’s an interestingly diverse mix of crowd. Since it’s a popular after work spot, you’ll see plenty of corporate-looking people in their top ties and shiny shoes. You’ll also see the crocs-wearing, shorts-donning, casual crowd in reasonably large numbers, too.

If you’re here to watch clashing matches with your group of friends, you won’t be disappointed because several channels are always airing the most popular matches in different sports at all times. We’ll be around the elevated dining area because onion rings are life.
