    Along the beach.: Bars, pubs and clubs in the hotels.

    by JAVATO Written May 4, 2008

    You can find some cafes in golden village. But mostly of the pubs and clubs are in the best hotels.
    Hyatt regency has a good English pub and Sheraton has a good nightclub and the best arabic bar of Oman.
    You cannot loss the arabic bars from Oman. It's a unforgetting experience.
    Women from Oman don't go out at night, in nightclubs there are only a little of turist women but mostly of girls are chinese prostitutes.

    Dress Code: Try to wear good clothes.

    Numerouse Turtle Beaches!: Take a spell in the Turtle Delivery Room

    by dansc0tt Written Jun 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you get the chance go watch the turtles lay their eggs! These fantastic animals come into certain beaches at night, dig a couple of huges holes (one to confuse the desert fox!) and then lay large numbers of eggs (depending on how old the turtle is). We visited a prtoected beach at Ras Al Had. After a short talk from the expert we followed the (large) group of other tourists down to the beach to watch our Turtle (lets call her Tina) lay her eggs. After the obligatory poking of some of less cultured tourist counterparts, Tina who was completely exhausted (more so than at the conception I would bet) slowly made her way back to the see. I mean after digging a huge hole and giving birth why not go for a swim - eh ladies?? Anyway, it was all very dark which added to the excitement, alas it did not add to the qualit of my photo - apologies!

    Clubs, Bars & Hedonism

    by dansc0tt Written Jun 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So hopefully you read this before you booked your ticket for a period of bar hopping, pub crawling or general drunkeness. Oman is not a 'dry' country and alcohol is available (outside times of religious festivals) however you wont find strips of bars or nightclubs dotted around the place. If you want to socialise with alcohol then head to one of hotel locations. Whether you are in Muscat or Nizwa or somewhere else you can pretty much be sure that you will find some form of social drinking. Neverthless i'm sure it will be pretty different to any of you from more 'westernised' countries! However still very enjoyable!

    Dress Code: Depends on locale

    Intercontinental: Dancing

    by JohnniOmani Written Oct 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The only true place in the country to dance, drink and meet other expats is at this 5 star hotel. The dance music is sub par but occasional nights they seem to get away from the 80s music not to mentio the techo stuff. If you ask the DJ to play something he will generally do it as long as you dont bother him too much! If you are doubting the music scene then call ahead and they will give you a listing of who is playing as this place must have a band most nights to stay open late. The drinks are pricy as hell 2.5 rials for a pint (6.5 US dollars) but if you go to the cheaper hotels on the corniche you can drink for half the price and then go out dancing. Good times.

    Stars: Camping

    by JohnniOmani Written Oct 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the absolute best things you can do at night in Oman is to take in the stars. You dont have to go far and if you do make it out of the cities you will be rewarded with some spectacular views. It is a great way to relax and get away from the hussle of life but Arabian stars are in a league of their own. Just make sure you dont go too far off the beaten track because it is easy to get lost at night in the desert.

    Marina Hotel: Hot summer nights

    by JohnniOmani Written Oct 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you get the chance to spend some time in Muscat you should really take the opportunity to relax on the top of the Marina hotel near the corniche. It probably has the best view of old Muscat in the city and you sit there and have a cold drink while taking in the views. The food is recommended and the waiters are top notch. It was one of my favorite places to go while in Muscat and the nighttime view is stunning.

    Roadside views: Watch mosques glowing in the night.

    by Faiza-Ifrah Updated Nov 20, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were told by our Omanese friends that being an Islamic country, Oman does not have open pubs, discos, cabarets and bars. The best thing to do is to enjoy all such facilities within the hotel compounds. However, this information has recently been challenged by a westerner living in Oman.

    Other than the above, the best thing to do is to do window shopping in Souks (marketplace) or see the mosques. Oman definately has most beautiful mosques of all the countries.

    Mosques by night are the most beautiful scenes. Every city/town of Oman has a grand mosque in the name of its ruler, His Highness Sultan Qaboos. Suhar has a beautiful mosque built by Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Alnahayan of the UAE as a gift to the people of Oman.

    Since we were visiting Oman from the UAE, which is a duty free country, we had no interest in shopping. Therefore, we decided to go for dining out and found that Arab and Pakistani food offered in various restaurants in closer to the original than it is in the UAE.

    Dress Code: Be conservative in dressing, but inside the hotel compounds, any dress may be worn.

    Dunes Internet Cafe: Surfing Whilst Serenaded

    by Ali&Steve Written Oct 19, 2004

    Here I am in Muscat forced to use an Internet cafe as the PC at work won't let me log on to Yahoo! What can I say - Dunes typifies Oman: smart interior, slightly outdated computer hardware, the frying of chips at the counter filling the cafe with a not so unpleasant smell (the sound is annoying though), a gaggle of locals in for a chin wag, and to top it all, the manager gets up on a stool with a guitar and gives us an excellent segue of songs. Only in Oman!

    Dress Code: No shorts. No skimpies.

    Oman is a very traditional islamic country. I saw no place for a nightlife activation. Maybe there are some in bigger tourist hotels, i don't know.
    Oman is not the place to make a party in the night. If you want this - don't go there.

    Kargeen Restaurant & Bar: Desert Nights

    by DesertRat Written Dec 23, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Kargeen is a bit hard to categorize: It's a restaurant, it's a tea & coffeehouse, and it's a place to come to smoke a waterpipe. Sometimes it has live Arab music, sometimes not. But ultimately, it's just a great place to hang out. Whether you order a full meal and drinks or just a tea or a coffee, you'll never be hurried, and you won't be hassled.

    Dress Code: None to speak of.

    If all your knowledge of Nightlife in the Arab world comes from time spent in Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, you're in for a treat. Alcohol is allowed in Oman. The western hotels usually have a bar and lounge. There's a great British Pub in the Intercontinental Hotel in al-Khuwair. There are even places to go dancing.
