Alcohol in the Emirates drinking

However, it is not allowed to drink alcohol in public (streets, public buildings, squares, parks, beaches) or to stumble through the city drunk. Licensed hotels and restaurants serve alcohol within their facility. This can of course also be the hotel garden or the hotel beach. These spaces are not considered public spaces. However, you must not go outside with the drink, i.e. you must not take a half-empty bottle of wine with you to drink it somewhere else.

Alcohol license for residents and tourists has been abolished

As a non-Muslim, you can now buy alcohol without a permit (in the past, residents and tourists also needed a license to buy alcohol).

Where can I buy alcohol in the Emirates?

However, alcohol is not readily available in the supermarket. There are separate shops for this. For example, the chain of shops “ Spinneys ” sells alcohol, other shops that sell alcohol are located in the streets of the city. In the Al Raha Beach Hotel, if you go from the hotel lobby to the shopping mall, there is also a shop that sells alcohol (but there are no shop windows or signs, a sliding door opens on the right side)
