MANAMA TRAVEL GUIDE
Nightlife In Manama
In Bahrain’s capital, nightlife is abundant, allowing everyone to choose a venue to his or her choice.
Manama has an extremely active nightlife. Whether you want to unwind in a bar after a day of sightseeing or want to dance the night away in a club, you will find both in the city.
The most popular bars in Manama are those with outside seating. Block 338 in Adlliya features the best bars. If you are hoping for a quiet drink, be aware that after 11pm, many bars will ramp up the music to create a party atmosphere.
Manama has an abundance of nightclubs for those seeking a party atmosphere. There is something for all demographics, whether you want to listen to Western music such as dance, pop, and hip hop, or Arabic music.
Those desiring “everything at once” should visit Bushido Lounge, which offers an outstanding assortment of drinks, an innovative décor, and quality service. Fans of opulent leisure congregate at Elements Pool & Lounge InterContinental Regency Bahrain, but those who prefer live music over a stiff drink will be delighted to discover Ibrida. Cigar Lounge caters to connoisseurs of good cocktails, while Wrangler and Club XS are notable venues where you can dance till dawn.
By Gulf standards, Manama boasts a thriving nightlife. Adliya, Hoora, Juffair, and the Business District are the key districts.
- Digger’s, Delmont Hotel. A sports pub with an Australian motif in the heart of the city. Male expats who are single are particularly fond of it.
- Gold Club. Russian females perform their rendition of traditional belly dance in an Arabic nightclub.
- Hard Rock Cafe.
- Harvesters, King Faisal Highway (Crowne Plaza). Popular pseudo-British tavern with cool beer, pub fare, and a Filipino band characterized by their scant clothes rather than their musical ability. Beers brewed in BD2.5.
- JJ’s (Al Bustan Hotel). The city’s largest Irish bar.
- Queensbury Arms. Another popular location with reasonable beer pricing.
- Sherlock Holmes (Gulf Hotel). Mock-British pub.
- Warbler’s. Pub for expats. Although this is technically a private club, the bouncers at the entry appear more concerned with preventing Arabs from entering than with inspecting membership cards.
- Wrangler’s, Best Western Juffair Hotel. A pub and dancing club with an American vibe. Popular with expats and sailors from the United States.
