Saudi Arabia Opens First Legal Alcohol Shop in Riyadh

Saudi Arabia is poised to make a groundbreaking stride in broadening its appeal to both travelers and businesses with the imminent opening of its first alcohol store in Riyadh. This establishment, strategically located in Riyadh’s Politic Quarter — a central capital for delegations and diplomats — will simply provision tonon-Muslim diplomats, marking a progressive shift in the nation’s programs.


supported by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, this visionary action aligns seamlessly with the overarching ideas of the Vision 2030 plan. This transformative plan seeks to diversify and strengthen the nation’s frugality, reducing its reliance on traditional oil earnings.


positioned in the heart of politic conditioning, the store’s access will be strictly regulated. Prospective clients will be wanted to register through a stoner-friendly mobile app, secure a license law from the foreign ministry, and cleave to periodic purchase proportions, as detailed in a document attained by Reuters. The store’s availability will be explicitly limited tonon-Muslims, in agreement with Islamic principles that forbid alcohol consumption.


Although the document didn't explicitly state whethernon-Muslim deportees, beyond diplomats, will be granted access, mediator sources anticipate the store’s grand opening in the coming weeks.


Saudi Arabia, historically strict on alcohol consumption, has enforced severe penalties ranging from switches, forfeitures, and imprisonment to expatriation for deportees. Recent reforms have shifted towards substituting carnal discipline with incarceration. Until now, access to alcohol was confined to politic channels or the covert black request.


This groundbreaking move coincides with recently introduced regulations confining alcohol significances within politic entrustments. The measure is designed to check the “ indecorous exchange of special goods and alcoholic potables entered by the delegacies ofnon-Muslim countries inside Saudi Arabia, ” as reported by Arab News.
