Where to find best alcohol in Dubai?

Many of us xpats love a bit of alcohol, especially on the weekends or special events like Christmas, but as Dubai is a Muslim Emirate, it is not as widely available as it would normally be back in your home country.
Where to Buy Alcohol in Dubai?
If you are on holiday in Dubai, there is no point in you reading any of this as you cannot buy alcohol from stores. You may drink in bars, clubs and hotels, but you cannot go to an off-licence and purchase anything with alcohol init.
If you are a resident of Dubai, not Muslim, 21 or over and earning a minimum of AED 3,000 per month, you may purchase alcohol from off-licences as long as you have a Liquor Licence. If you do not have a Liquor Licence, but meet all other requirements, see our section on How to get a Liquor Licence in Dubai.
Below is a list of stores in Dubai selling alcohol.
