Yes. My first bar. It’s dark and English and (like all bars here) attached to a hotel. The Sheraton, specifically.

An odd note: There is a major push in Abu Dhabi, it seems, to get people to give up smoking. Yet bars (and parts of restaurants) are smoke-friendly. So, unlike Chicago, I have to go more than half a block to get a cocktail or a pint. And also unlike Chicago, you can smoke in a bar.

Me, my Manhattan and yet ANOTHER laptop photo.

Not sure where I was going with that, other than hoping I don’t smell like smoke OR booze as I wander back outside.

Glad you made it safely (to the bar. I was less worried about the international flights, but good job there, too.) After the Manhattan were there any UAEs to drink?
