If you're home alone you'll have to come along to the sad gits club nights out where all the blokes whose lovely wives have abandoned them to the heat meet and cry into beer glasses.

Punches optional...

we have never done this thing until our nipper came along, but to be honest 3 months in Scotland must be better than dragging the little mite to malls and air conditioned room after room, with the incessant heat and dust, no wonder so many kids are unwell here with asthma and other 'lack of fresh air' diseases

I'd take three months in Scotland over summer in this place anyday; proper beer, fresh air, proper beer, great food, proper beer, better driving, proper beer and varied weather, oh and proper beer.

Sadly they wouldn't let me drive or go to the pub when I was at school otherwise I would have been there...

Hi All

I have been here 9 days so far and only been in a couple of pubs. I have not been overly impressed with the places and found the beer hit me quicker than back home in Scotland.

The places are full of working girls who are on you like flies round s..t.

This is my 1st Thursday out without having jet lag. Can anyone recomend a couple of places for tonight?

Cheers

A.A.

Unfortunately there are no good bars in AD (IMO) but you could try the Captains at Le Meridien, Brauhaus at the Beach Rotana, or the Tavern at the Sheraton is ok-ish.
