Favorite thing: Bahrain is the most liberal of the Gulf countries when it comes to alcohol. It doesn't mean that you can buy a bottle of vodka in the souq, but you have lincensed bars which can provide you with your pint of Guinness. The easiest place to get beer and wine are the bars of higher class hotels like the Radisson Blu. Especially in Manama, however, there are also some more licensed bars like in hotels where you would less expect it - for example JJ's Irish Pub & Restaurant which is a real expat haunt.

Bahrain's alcohol policy is in my opinion a good balance between those who want to enjoy beer reasonably and those who have objections against it for religious reasons. At least, unlike in other Gulf countires, you don't feel like a criminal, if you want to purchase legally a pint of beer.
