For the Muslims in Pakistan, alcohol is prohibited, even talking about it is not encouraged. The nightlife of Pakistani families is mostly surrounded by late night dining, walking, shopping or driving. But the truth is that many nightclubs, bars, operate in Pakistan, having both foreign and local customers. They do not openly operate, most of them are hidden, underground and operate at night in darkness.
The known hotel in Islamabad, Marriott Hotel has a disco nightclub called “Rumors”. Most of the customers of ‘Rumors’ are rich foreigners.
There is a Bar Lounge in Pearl Continental Hotel in Rawalpindi. Popular hotels in Islamabad do have bar system including Serena Hotel, and Best Western.
