Funnily enough had a really good laugh with an Emirati in one of the bars. Said he was a cop working in bomb disposal. Mental.

Yep, I do...

My local haunt is McGettigans.. Good crowd at the weekends.. Good grub, and its only 5 mins from my door.. Local drinking hole for the Etihad trolley dollies.. (Think The Underground in DXB way back and you'll get an idea..!!)

When I was on-Island before getting my permanent place sorted out, I went to the Millenium next to Al Wahda mall.. Cant remember the name of the pub (Porters??). A fair few Brit expats go there...

You live in Raha Beach?

Decent or no?

What do you pay for cooling charges there?
