Went to Belgian Beer Cafe to show the folks the sunset etc. Some sundowners would have been nice... but was told Municipality rules that all bars shut between 4-6pm?

So we went to the IV which obviously had not heard of this ruling...

What's the deal with this?

there was a thread on this a while ago, it's really hit and miss...brunches stop at 4pm, but then mina al salaam and al qasr just send you off to jambase which is open...seems to be no rhyme nor reason, so totally apt for here...

Was in Nezesaussi two weeks ago and they stopped serving between 4-6pm but some guys at bar had a bucket of beers they bought before 4pm that kept them going.

It does seem to be more related to hotels, but also confusing as stated.
Certainly my "no hotel connected" local is open right through this time.

That happened to Aussie Legends...both the bars shut between 4 and 6 pm. Now have to go to Nelsons at Jumeira Rotana and then walk back to Aussie Legends for the quiz night (Mondays).
