You are right, Dubai is an Islamic Emirate and is very open minded. This openes should not be taken advantage off.
Dubai has poured cold water on a reported plan by an American restaurant famous for dressing its waitresses in revealing clothes to open in the city.
Hooters wanted to launch outlets in Dubai. A Kuwaiti investor, who has the franchise rights to Hooters, said in recent reports he was trying to secure a location to open a restaurant this year.
But Ali Ebrahim, deputy director-general for executive affairs at the Department of Economic Development (DED), said Hooters has not been registered with the department.
The local laws will not allow restaurants that are in violation of "religion, traditions and culture," he said, according to a report in Al Khaleej. He said the DED is closely following the US firm's plans to open an outlet in Dubai.
