7. Why Not Super Club, Hotel Golden Tulip


    Why Not Super Club is a night club located in the ground floor of Hotel Golden Tulip in Seeb, Muscat. You don't even have to enter the hotel as there is an entrance in the ground floor that goes straight to the club. Not a huge club, but Why Not Super Club has various drinks and cocktails priced at a comparatively lower rate that any other pubs and bars in Muscat. The club also has great music playing with a small dance floor. The club does not seem to have a strict dress code as such as I remember myself going to the place in shorts a couple of times.
