Cultural advice for non Muslims in Bahrain during Ramadan
Time Out Bahrain staff
Don’t drink, eat or smoke (chewing gum’s also a no-no) in public during daylight hours. Public places include your workplace and even your car, anywhere you could be seen by someone who is fasting.
Don’t dance, sing or play loud music in public at any time during Ramadan. The Holy Month is a time for quiet reflection.
Don’t expect to order a glass of grape with a meal if you go to a restaurant. Alcohol is not served publicly during the Holy Month. Transporting alcohol and public intoxication are also definite no-nos with penalties more severe than usual.
