Default Booze in Qatar

Just heard a rumour that from 5'oclock this afternoon no more alcohol can be served at beaches. furthermore, the pool bar at the W is closed...apparently the same goes for pools.
I just heard this a few minutes ago, not confirmed.
A beach party at a large hotel is already cancelled.

Guess it might upset someone who just happens to see someone drinking something...

Pathetic.

Maybe it's something to do with the new regime. I can remember a time when Qatar was dry but I doubt if it will go that far especially with the World Cup etc... Looks like we are escaping back to UAE at the right time

Well Muharram is ongoing and the 9th and 10th i.e. the 14th and 15th of November are sensitive days so maybe they decided to keep it dry till after?
I might be wrong

Isn't this more important to the Shias than the Sunni Qataris?

Yes, I guess I am just being optimistic about maybe the government showing a bit of solidarity with the Shia minority.
Like I said earlier, I could be wrong

I'd say you most likely are.
Now I hear alcohol is banned from all outside areas.
No confirmation or reason from the government as of yet though.

There was a time when you couldn't go to a hotel and have a drink, but it wasn't entirely dry - you used to get a booze permit, issued by the British Embassy, to spend at the Cable and Wireless syndicate- originally 400 QR, later 500....
