Alcoholic drinks are served in the major hotels and their restaurants, as well as in a few clubs (such as some golf clubs) and associations, and the minimum drinking age is 21. Non-Muslim residents can buy supplies of liquor for home consumption by obtaining a permit. Public drunkenness or driving under the influence of alcohol is strictly against the law, as is serving, selling or giving liquor to Muslims.
