On the Rocks

Top choice lounge in Muscat

Image by Jenny Walker Lonely Planet

This novel lounge restaurant, with its giant psychedelic TV screen, serves a spirited cocktail and a fine-dining menu for modest prices, but it's the music that draws the crowds. Every Tuesday is steam-and-beer night, with dim sum and pulse and soul music; every Wednesday there's live music, and DJs pitch in from 8.30pm to 2am on other nights. Smart-casual dress is strictly enforced.
