It certainly does have bars (usually located in hotels and hostels), and in any event alcoholic drinks (including American Whiskey and high-quality Syrian arak) can be bought quite openly and legally in the shops (unlike in the US ally Saudi Arabia, where such things are so illegal you don't want to know).
Women can also be seen wearing swimsuits there (again, unlike Saudi Arabia, and usually in popular mixed-sex swimming pools), and dumbasses called Jonas will almost certainly not see their girlfriends raped there, or be treated cruelly because they are not Muslim for that matter - at least not unless they go around being rude and offensive to everyone else they see.
Admittedly, it is not as vulgar or in-your-face as Beirut, but some people might think this is a good thing.
"Well, Simon, he is from a Muslim background, and his wife is not as secular-minded as he is."
Syria isn't the "paradise" it was almost a decade ago.
