More on Drinking & Nightlife in Dubai

Whilst it’s a common misnomer that Dubai is “dry” as it’s a Muslim country, on the contrary, Dubai and most (but not all) parts of the UAE allow for the consumption of alcohol – and often on a grand scale!

But all things in moderation. Whilst alcohol can be purchased in Dubai at licensed venues, being drunk and disorderly or driving whilst under the influence are both strict no-nos. Up next planning your trip to Dubai, you may also want to check out:
