Watering holes

Well I hope you all had a nice long weekend, I know I did. I'm still stuffed from all the Turkey and cake. I see a Turkey ruby murray in my near future.

Today's post is all about the new poll here on MM. It's about bars. I had to draw the line somewhere, and so I've done the following:

1. They are all Muscat based bars
2. They are all publicly accessible (eg not PDO, Civil Aviation, OHI Club, Royal Flight, golf clubs)
3. I've not included bars in predominantly restaurants (eg: Blue Marlin, O Solé Mio, Up Town, The Pub/Tokyo Taro, Pavo Real etc)

Now I know there are the Wadi Kabir bars, but I dont even know what they're called so I didn't add them in. Same with the Majan hotel bars. If you think I missed a worthy bar out, please let me know and I'll add it to the list for next time (as soon as someone votes on the Poll I can't edit it).

Vote for all that you like, we shall see if there is a clear winner!

  1. I heard a rumour that the ministry (not sure which one, is currently cancelling licences for a number of restaurants, example, Woodland, Golden Oryx and a few more, I think they are trying to have bars in the hotels only!! If anyone has anymore information on this please post!

  2. I am hearing a lot about those bar in Wadi Kabir, let me try one time

  3. Althogh "winter only" perhaps you should include the roof top bar of Park Inn.

  4. Az - yeah your right I should have included them... I'll remember for next time.

  5. BARS! not my place, but CARS yes! interesting names though...thx Sythe...guess should try few, any suggestions :)

  6. what about piano bar? quiet lounge in barr al jissa... suits to wind down after a long weekend

  7. Great poll just before Ramadan :)

  8. What are we rating them on...cost, ambience, cleanliness, quality and quantity of hookers?

  9. Zebu - It depends what you want from a bar in terms of choice, clientèle and ambience.

    Mendel - I dont classify BAJ as in Muscat. But I'll add the piano bar next time!
