Cultural tips to help you get the most out of Ramadan in Bahrain
Time Out Bahrain staff
Don’t Don’t smoke, drink, chew gum or eat in public in the hours from sunrise and sunset. It’s offensive, and flagrant flaunting of the rules could also get you a warning from the police or even result in you spending the rest of the month in jail.
Don’t dance or sing in public at any time. Not that you should have many opportunities – there will be no live music gigs and only background music allowed.
Don’t expect to have the kind of blow-out clubbing weekends you might be used to. All bars and nightclubs will be closed for the duration of the month. Also, outlets will refrain from serving alcohol, and that includes restaurants in hotels and distribution centres.
