Default Buying booze in dubai

Some help please guys.

I'm the proud owner of an Abu Dhabi booze license, never get asked for it though in AD. I've come to Dubai for a few days and wanted to buy some alcohol from a liquor store, only to be told it's not valid in Dubai. I tried the whole I thought the Emirates were united spiel but it didn't go down too well.

Does anyone know where I can purchase booze, at a store that's shall we say "more relaxed" when it comes to asking for ID?

Help would be much appreciated. Cheers

Not in Dubai, you can get it delivered though. Or drive up to Um al quain to Barracuda, much cheaper and no questions asked.

Just googled the um al quain thing..... Is that like an hour and a half away? Or am I looking at the wrong thing? Interested in how the delivery thing would work. Is that from African and Eastern or something like that?

Yes Barracuda is about an hours drive, easy drive up the SZR to join the 311, or the 311 or 611, easy to find.

Delivery from this company http://www.centaurusint.info/index.html
