Bars and restaurants in Dubai must suspend all entertainment activities by 1am, the emirate’s tourism authority said.
Hotels must also cease providing food and beverage services after 3am, with the exception of delivery and room service.
Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing told the establishments of the changes at the weekend.
They were imposed to curb the spread of Covid-19 and came into effect on Thursday.
The circular warned the venues they must comply with the changes to opening hours “to avoid any consequential procedures and violations”.
