Are you going to Bahrain? I would really recommend it?
Bahrain is definately on the list (maybe over eid).....and while I am there I want to visit that water park they have...apparently it is fantastic....any recommendations would be great, things to do, places to see, bars, restaurants?
Fiddlers Green (Diplomat Radisson SAS - Irish Bar) the Bar Manager there is an old friend of mine called Dee, and there is a guy called Joe, who is the best barman on the Island, if they both still work there!!
JJ's/BJ's - JJ's is the pub and BJ's is its sister nightclub, next door, there is also a traditional british fish and chip shop over the road!
Trader Vics - Polynesian style Cocktail Bar at the Ritz Carlton
Ric's Kountry Kitchen, a lively American Bar in Juffair, owned by a guy from Texas and a fave of the US Navy! Excellent bar staff and live music!
Wrangler - a wild west style bar at the Elite Hotel! The Manager there is an Indian guy called Madan, their bar staff are excellent too! They have BD9 on Thursdays where you pay a one off BD9 and all bottled beer and spirits are free, so long as its not a famous brand i..e Bacardi and you are happy to drink just your average white rum!Restaurants
Ric's (as above) also does American home style cooking, breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Lanterns - Indian restaurant (can't remember where this is though but everyone will know it)
Al Fanar and Mondos both at the Radisson - Al Fanar is local cuisine and Mondos is Mediterranean (the Manager there was an old friend of mine too called Abdullah, he and Dee in Fiddlers should be married by now, if they are both still there)!
Blue Elephant - Thai near the Ritz Carlton (very nice)!
Le Mediteranee - Ritz Carlton
Waves - The Crowne Plaza - Buffet style with a wide range of seafood from around the Gulf
Hong Kong Chinese - Umm Al Hassam
Clay Oven - Adliya (Indian)
Senor Pacos - Mexican in Adliya also, best Margaritas ever...
Hash House in Adliya
Cocos - Adliya is a fab place for breakfast or lunch but very popular at weekends
Zoes - Adliya (delicious menu)
Places you should visit
Al Bander the amazingly gorgeous and fun resort in Sar, very popular with everyone! It has a bar in the middle of its main pool, and adjoins the ocean so there is lots of water sports etc. available! There are also chalets etc. you can hire out, and a bit further around the coast from here is
The Yacht Club! Definitely worth a visit! But not sure if you have to be with a member or not!
The Riffa Golf Club, if you like Golf!
The Seef Mall, an excellent shopping Mall in the Seef District
The Country Club out at Saar which has horse riding and other activities and has an nice bar and restaurant too
The Tree of Life - because you just have too!
The Bahrain Heritage Museum - Manama
