Dubai Government issued a circular allowing to reopen bars in the emirate.

Previously, it was announced that all bars and pubs had to stop operation to curb the COVID-19 spread. However, according to new circulars issued over the weekend, bars can now reopen and serve provided adhering strict rules and guidelines.

The Government of Dubai and Dubai Tourism officially allowed to reopen bars in the city. However, bar owners have to impose strict rules in place to ensure the safety of visitors and staff:

  • Drinks can only be served to the table, customers cannot order from or sit at the bar at the moment;
  • No public gatherings and social distancing must be followed inside the place
  • Guests cannot queue outside the venue to get in, and markers should be placed on open areas in bars;
  • Cash payments are still allowed, but contactless E-payments preferred;
  • Complimentary sharing bowls such as nuts and crisps are not allowed to limit physical contact between customers and staff;
  • Dancefloors are not allowed to operate at the moment;
  • Drinks will be served in disposable glasses with bottles not permitted unless the establishment has a machine dishwasher.
