Default Eid alcohol hours

Sunday night was dry. Last night we went to a bar but had to wait until 6:30 till we could order. Does the same policy apply today, i.e. dry until well after sunset?

Cheers

No. Bars are dry on Arafat only.

I thought you'd been here for years and knew everything...

I've been here for three years, Madam.

Yesterday was Arafat Day, today is the first day of Eid al Adha. So there's a chance that the alcy policy is in double effect.

Was in Hatta for the last couple of days - odd rule that the bar was closed between 4 and 6. Now in Oman and the bar is closed until 6.30.

Muslim holy hours?
