    The Harvester: Nightlife-The Harvester

    by Kilted Updated Jul 25, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is all about the music here. The Harvester boasts one of the best live bands on the island who would probably do well in Europe or the States. They do great renditions of other people's popular songs.

    Wrangler's: Nightlife-Wrangler's

    by Kilted Updated Jul 25, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the day and early evening Wrangler's dark and empty bar has a charm all its own and it is easy to imagine that you are in small town USA. The food is good and during the day the service is swift. It is at night however that Wranglers comes alive. On weekend nights, the dance floor that looked of adequate size earlier, looks tiny in comparison to the number of people bumping and grinding to R'n B and hip hop.

    Ric's Kountry Kitchen: Nightlife-Ric's Kountry Kitchen

    by Kilted Updated Jul 25, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ric’s downstairs bar is smoky and small and it will depend on your mood as to whether you find it intimate or crammed. It’s all friendly and relaxed enough – walls are adorned with sports shirts, flags and graffiti; indeed you’re invited to scribble on the walls yourself.
    Meanwhile huge screens relay all the big match action to the well-rounded 30-something American and British expatriates who frequent the joint. The place may be looking a little ragged these days, but in a strange way this is all part of Ric’s charms. If you’ve just arrived in the Kingdom and are hoping to meet and mingle with other expats, then Ric’s should be your first port of call.

    Great Time. Set in what is supposed to be an underground mining cave. Band plays just about every night, they play covers of many new songs and a few good old ones. Staff is incredible, led by manager Ryan, who will go out of his way to make sure you have a good time. Specials nightly. Good wings cheap drinks.

    Nighttime Enjoyment in Bahrain

    by Sami29 Updated Jun 16, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nobody would ever imagin how frantic and wild nighttlife in Bahrain is. Most of the locals are unaware of this because financially they are unable to afford it. But if you are a tourist or financially secure, you can have a wonderful nightlife here in Bahrain, most probably cheaper than Dubai or even other Asian countires. If you are European and you long for European atmosphere, go to Gulf Hotel Sherlock Holmes bar or Crowne plaza or The Irish bar at Diplomat. However, my best place is The Irish bar near Mansouri Mansions. If you want to have a look at a classical pub, go to Old Beam, almost attached to the Irish bar near Mansouri Mansions. But I dont adivise you to go there for a drink because it is in a complete mess.
    For a good Euopean dinner, go to Upstaris Downstairs, Vins Maestro, or Camelot, all in Adliya area, Copper Chimeny for Indian food, Senior Pacos for Mexican, AlAbraj for Arabic food. If you are a hot bachelor like most of the American Marines and you desperately need a company for the night, then the nearest place for you is Ramee Hotel next to the American base, or Albustan Hotel near the Palace. There are tens of Thai and Chinese ladies there. However, if you are Asian, or black , then you better go to the hotels on Exhibition Rd. The best ones are Phonecia, Smiramis, El-Salam and Omer Alkhayyam. Very rarely you will find Europeans in this area except of course, for the African Americans who look like the locals only if they keep their mouths shut.

    Fiddler's Green: Irish Bar in the Radisson Blu Hotel

    by Airpunk Written Aug 12, 2012
    Fiddlers Green, Radisson Blu Hotel
    1 more image

    Not the greatest bar I have ever been in, but still a good hotel bar and a nice place to end an evening. Fiddler's Green is one of the bars of the Radisson Blu Hotel (The Diplomat) and offers a clean enivronment, sport on the telly and a choice of beers and other alcoholic beverages comparable to other hotel bars in the world. As I said, it's a great place to have a beer or too and a nice evening, especially in northern/central Manama. However, the atmosphere is still too artifical and I would prefer JJ's Irish Pub if you are in the Gudaibiya area.

    Of course, the bar is accessible to everyone and not only to the guests of the Radisson Blu Hotel.

    Dress Code: Just respect the same dresscode as outside of the hotel and don't look like someone who is returning from the beach.

    JJ's Irish Pub & Restaurant: One of the most popular bars in Bahrain

    by Airpunk Updated Aug 12, 2012
    JJ's Irish Pub & Restaurant
    2 more images

    To drink a beer with some expats, especially British ones, this might be the right place for you. As Bahrain really doesn't have any Irish tradition, this place is as plastic paddy as it could be. However, it is one of the oldest Irish pubs in the Gulf region and well-known in Bahrain. The pub serves food but is more a beer and cider place. Usual pub amenities like happy hours, quizzes and live bands can be found here as well. When there is live music, it may be that you are charged a small entry fee. JJ's is part of the Al Bustan Hotel, but you won't notice that it is a hotel bar at all. Even from outside, it is harder to find the hotel than the bar, so just look out for the Leprechaun instead of for a hotel building.
