The dynamic city of Muscat offers a variety of cultural, musical and leisure settings for exploring its brilliant colours.

Although Oman is a conservative Muslim country, the capital city of Muscat has many bars, pubs and nightclubs that give a much-needed break from the humdrum routines of the day. Oman's nightlife thrives with a significant influx of expats and tourists each year. Let’s look at what the Muscat nightlife scene looks like.
