SundayIn most parts of the world, Sunday night is death when it comes to nightlife, not least in the Gulf where Sunday is essentially Monday. But in Bahrain, an island that parties as though every night is a Friday night, Sunday is no exception. Every Sunday night until August 8, the Dublin Club in Juffair will host the country’s official Beer Pong Tournament, the only qualifier to be held outside of the US and Canada. For those not familiar with the sport, it’s basically a team drinking game that involves ping pong balls being thrown into pint glasses, the contents of which are then consumed by the losing team. There are weekly prizes, with the winner from each Sunday being entered into the Grand Final, which will be held on Sunday August 8, where $1,000 prize money will be at stake. The winning team will then be jetting off to Las Vegas for the World
Final, with the chance to compete for prize money worth in excess of $65,000. For more information, check out the Dublin Club Bahrain’s Facebook page, or call Neal on 39 736 547.
If you’ve popped your dancing shoes on and are looking for something more energetic, Sunday night is salsa night at one of Adliya’s hottest nightspots, Brazil Lounge (17 826 686). Upstairs from the rather good restaurant of the same name, salsa lessons are held from 8pm-9pm (and cost BD3 per person), while the dancing habitually goes on until at least 11pm.
