From todays Daily Telegraph.

This 4-6 stuff was going on in Bur Dubai a few months back but most if not all the places applying it seem to have reverted to continuous opening.

However it now seems to have raised it's head in Barsha. Perhaps a new policeman on the beat??

Nezesaussi (sic?) in the Al Manzil, apply this rule, or certainly were doing so. In fairness at quarter to 4 the bar staff told everyone and let you stock up, they'd even keep your beer chilled for you if you asked nicely! It's still a pain in the hoop though.

Your link doesn't seem to work for me. If it's about no alcohol being served between 4-6pm, what's new? Quite happy to wait until after Iftar and keep the locals happy.

If you copy and paste, it does. Not sure why it doesnt directly. Perhaps because I coloured it blue?? Sorry if that is the case.

Earlier some of the bars I visit seem to have removed the notice saying no alcohol served between 4-6. Doesn't bother me as if I want to drink at that time it is usually at Jebal Ali CLub which isn't a problem.

You're best bet for parking would just be to use Dubai Mall or Souk al Bahar I think, it's only a short walk from there. I like it, the foods good, nice atmosphere and lots of telly's with sport on.

Prior to Monday night quiz nights and to avoid heavy SZR traffic I used to go early to Aussie Legends/St. Andrews Bar last year until they shut between 4-6 pm. Then moved to the Boston Bar (Rotana Jumeirah) but that too stopped serving alcohol between 4 and 6 pm. So gave up. However, not a problem now that SZR peak traffic if free-running between the Marina and Satwa...so can go to bars after 6 pm.

Though of late I've been going to the Jebel Ali Club (since I found it - can't believe I've been here 4 years and not been before !) but not as yet before 6pm.

No, only to use the sports facilities........However members were getting priority entrance to some of the World Cup games, at the beginning at least.
