Buying and consuming alcohol is permitted in the UAE, contrary to common belief. Foreign residents in possession of a permit may purchase alcoholic beverages in specialised shops. Restaurants and hotel bars are also allowed to sell alcohol. Consuming alcohol is only forbidden during religious holidays and the legal drinking age is 21 years old.
