A drinking ban has been introduced on expatriate British bars in Dubai.
According to reports in the Telegraph, all sports bars and British bars in the busy Al Barsha area will be forbidden from selling alcohol between the hours of 16:00 and 18:00.
A police source told the paper: "It has been the case that some premises have been selling alcohol all through the day and it was not controlled."
The spokesperson added: "It is a very strict rule and some officers without uniform are on patrol to see if the rules are being obeyed."
While alcohol is not illegal in the emirate, being drunk is frowned upon and expatriates have often clashed with local culture over this matter.
Dubai's control over alcohol extends to the point where residents are not able to drink within their own homes without a liquor license.
It is also a punishable offence to be seen drunk in public.
