Racism in our favourite drinking spots!! Waxy's and Jimmy dix don't fare to well. This is a new newspaper that isn't shy about what it prints, and amazingly it is part of the gulf news group. Where is the moonwalking naked man for his comments!

Is this paper a daily or weekly thing? we've had one copy so far...and it wasn't bad

MM, xx

it is twice a week, Mondays and Thursdays. I get my copy at the garage. It isn't bad, the two topics I posted about were really quite good!!!

I think the Blue Bar's a top place, great Belgium Beer too, and good music.

What's the reasoning behind these door policies? Maybe I'm a little naive still but I would have thought it's not like say England in the 60s where 'they' were not always welcomed by 'all'... is it that brown people are considered less likely to spend as much money as whites? Or do the bouncers like the power and the buzz of having people beg them to be allowed to spend their money?

I honestly don't know but I think it is just down to the skin colour, let's face it there are plenty of wealthy asians in dubai but even they get turned down.

However the perception is that the Asian guys and gals don't drink much (at least when compared to a UK/Aus/SA citizen) so there's not as much cash to be made from them, and then there's the fact that they'll buy 1 drink (coke) and keep it all night.

That's one of the reasons (according to a bar manager I know)
