Bahrain Night Life

Manama has some of the best nightlife in the Middle East. Alcohol is legal here, making the city very attractive to those who cannot drink legally in nearby countries such as Saudi Arabia. Manama is also unique in that here, it is not uncommon for men and women to intermingle. Though most women in Manama dress in traditional Islamic garb, Western wear is becoming more and more acceptable and women are beginning to participate in some of the same activities as men. 

Awtar: ​

This year on first day of Eid-ul-Fitr - “AWTAR” at Elite Crystal Hotel in Juffair is set to bring an authentic oriental atmosphere to Bahrain’s night life.

With the inimitable success of KLUB 360, the Elite Hospitality has established itself as the finest in the realm. AWTAR is the latest addition to the portfolio, and an apt addition to the diversity in quality entertainment.

Awtar features live Arabic music and entertainment complemented with a rich selection of drinks and mouth-watering selection of food.

AWTAR endeavors to mesmerize your senses with its authentic oriental atmosphere, felt in every detail, the décor, detailed design, unique live music, the sound and lights, with the authenticity of the food – a complete experience of the Oriental Charm.

The well appointed large stage & dance floor, complete with state-of-the-art audio and visual set up, will showcase Arabic talent from across the region.

Slated to be the Island’s premiere live music performance restaurant – Awtar has received fabulous response even prior to opening and is booked on most weekends of the year.

For bookings or more details please call the Elite Crystal Hotel at 17 360 360 or you can contact the AWTAR Guest Relations Manager on , 17 360 340, 34 333 222.

Ramee International Hotel:

Not many hotels in the Middle East have an awful lot of character, but with Rock Bottom housed in this down-at-heel hotel, you can almost imagine that you’re staying in a seedy joint in New York City. The rooms are adequate, and both business and leisure guests are welcomed in with all the facilities you’d expect from a four-star hotel, including a business centre, a gym and pool. Kids stay for free so it’s abig money saver for families.

Cocoon Lounge Bahrain:

‘Quality of service, food and international entertainment, which has been carefully hand-picked through the years, has been the core success, but also the belief in my concept by my partners has played a major role.

‘Cocoon means literally, the stage where a caterpillar turns into a butterfly... in our world, it is where extremely busy and stressed people turn into beautifully happy souls! Cocoon was designed as a feeling and not a visual impact. With the contemporary design and feel, it has been the benchmark for our company Gama Hotel Management and has led to the birth of Muju at Amwaj islands.


The mantle of Bahrain’s premier Aussie pub seems to have been snapped up by Diggers – though it soon becomes clear that this self-proclamation is as well founded as all of the Irish pubs claiming to be the home of all things emerald. The bar can apparently hold up to 500 people, yet with probably a third of that in attendance the place feels a little claustrophobic.

Rough around the edges sums it up best; the place serves some decent drinks, and at pretty reasonable prices to boot. But there’s a slightly unsavoury feel about Diggers. The staff do their best to lift the venue, and are at all times friendly and efficient. But maybe it’s the sticky floor, the slightly intimidating atmosphere or the lack of anything genuinely Australian that make you feel like you could find somewhere better to spend your evening.


Located in the heart of Manama’s bustling financial district, Downtown Rotana is ideally situated for both business and leisure travellers within walking distance of local businesses, historic sites and the famous shopping hub of Manama Souq. Bahrain World Trade Centre and Bahrain Financial Harbour are only a few minutes’ walk away and Bahrain International Airport is just a 20-minute drive.

The 26-storey hotel boasts floor-to-ceiling windows throughout offering commanding views of the city. All 242 rooms and suites are furnished to the highest degree, giving guests the cosiness and warmth of home, as well as the splendour and modern five-star that can only be offered at Rotana.

Four distinctive food and beverage venues including Teatro Downtown bring an elevated dining experience to the city. In addition 1,250 sqm of meeting space including a ballroom with natural daylight and a spacious pre-function area, seven meeting rooms and a business centre provide meeting and event solutions for all requirements.

Guests with recreation in mind can access Bodylines Fitness & Wellness Club, exercise in the fully equipped gym or take a dip with a view in the rooftop swimming pool.

Dublin Club:

A very popular haunt with the US Navy, Dublin’s has a great band, Evolver, who’ve just returned for a second six month residency due to public demand.

They and DJ Conny, a strange-looking character who seems continually able to catch the mood of the crowd, give Dubz, as it’s mostly known, a special sort of charm particularly since there are regular karaoke nights at which the punters can join the band.

The pong tables, on which you play a ridiculous game (can you tell I’m not very good at it) involving trying to get a ping pong ball into a full plastic drink cup at the opposite end of the table and having to finish the contents if your opponent manages it first, are a firm favourite with regulars and soon have newcomers hooked.

The atmosphere’s always friendly, even when it’s really busy, but the staff can be a wee might stern when the going gets tough.

Dublin Glamour Lounge:

The Glamour lounge have vast experience when it comes to providing hair and make up services. We have been providing these services for many years and have catered for some of the most high profile clients and exclusive events including TV3 and The Rose of Tralee. We provide a range of services for our clients in Blanchardstown from our exquisitly refurbished salon offering the latest technology in a modern setting.


The eclectic mix of music makes TaBu one of the most popular venues on the island. In an average night you can expect everything from salsa to R&B and house music – fantastic if you’re looking for a bit of variety. What really makes it stand out from the crowd, though, is the decor – the entirely white interior is divided into two sections, one of which has its own swimming pool. Time Out especially likes the free salsa classes on Wednesdays.

Typhoon Lounge - Gulf Hotel Bahrain:

The newest hot spot for Bahrain's sophisticated and trendy elite. Typhoon nestles amongst the cool waterfalls in the lush tropical greenery of the hotel’s spectacular Tropical gardens. Enjoy Cocktails or Shisha together with your friends or after dinner drinks with your guests. A bar menu of Thai finger food is available and live entertainment every Thursday and Friday.

Make sure to ask for Jojo’s Mojito!


Wrangler’s drinks offers are heavily tailored towards the female population. Rather than any gallant display of chivalry, this is instead a desperate attempt to entice the fairer sex into the bar.

Offsetting the male dominance of this ‘Wild West’ bar is such a focus for the owners, that they have neglected to spend quite as much time thinking about the bar’s atmosphere and decor, but in all fairness, it doesn’t need much considering. The drinks are usually featured in some kind of deal, and the music is loud enough to make you consider ditching that bar stool and throwing some shapes. Servicemen make the occasional appearance, but rarely hang around for long, and if you’re in Wrangler’s with friends, you won’t even notice them.
