Dubai Police has sent a new statement stating that alcohol is banned and bars and pubs must stop serving alcohol immediately from Wednesday, June 24 onwards.
The notice reads: “We would like to inform you that it has been decided to close all bars and pubs and stop serving alcoholic beverages as of Wednesday 24/06/2020 until further notice. Kindly inform and abide by the decision to close in order to avoid legal issues. You will be notified to restart at a later time.”
Restaurants can, however, still serve alcohol with meals. But bars and pubs are not allowed to serve alcoholic drinks. And there’s no indication when that will be lifted.
