Numerous cafés and restaurants can be found across Kuwait City, and with such a large expatriate audience they serve cuisines from around the world. A favoured dining destination is Marina Crescent, two storeys of restaurants and cafés attached to Marina Mall, one of Kuwait's busiest shopping centres. The complex is liveliest in the evening when people come to watch the sunset over the marina's expensive yachts.
Kuwait operates a strict no-alcohol policy and so nightlife is substantially quieter than some of the other Gulf States. Evening entertainment usually involves hanging out at coffee shops, watching the latest movies at the cinema or smoking shisha while enjoying a coffee or fresh juice.
