Nightlife in Muscat

Muscat's sedate nightlife begins and ends with hotel bars and clubs such as the Al Maha Piano Bar in Muttrah's luxury Al Bustan Palace Intercontinental hotel. Most hotels are found around Ruwi, Qurm and Al Khuwair, serving alcohol to a sophisticated mix of locals and expats. The cafés of Muttrah's Corniche fill nightly with local families socialising. Smoking is widespread. Most cafés close around midnight, while hotel bars and clubs might stay open until 2am.

Copacabana in Qurm's Grand Hyatt Muscat hotel takes Rio Carnival as its inspiration. Waiters in gaudy outfits, fruity cocktails, laser lights and top DJs add to the street party feel. Dressy locals and visitors dance to the Latin rhythms.

Al Ghazal Bar

Homely British atmosphere

Despite its name, Al Ghazal is more Old England than Omani. Seasoned expats, tourists and the odd local come here to savour the friendly atmosphere and regular quiz nights. Televised sport and occasional bands add to the air of conviviality.
