What to Wear
In Qatar you will probably see some expat residents wearing anything from shorts to spagetti-strap tops. While most likely no Qatari will ever tell you that you shouldn't be wearing this, that does not mean that they don't take offense to it.
Consider what the Qataris themselves wear - both men and women are completely covered from head to toe in loose, nonrevealing robes, and additionally for women the face is often covered by a veil as well. While I'm not suggesting a foreign women should wear a veil or even cover her head, it is respectful to wear loose-fitting clothes that cover the limbs. You will be much better received this way, and will avoid alot of unwanted attention from men as well.
While you can probably find suitable clothes in your own wardrobe, if you want to buy something here then try the long cotton robes for sale in the shopping malls, the souqs, or even the large supermarkets such as Carrefour. I've found these to be the most comfortable thing to wear in the heat, and nowadays I often wear them at home too.
For men, while short sleeves are OK, it's really best not to go out in shorts, no matter how hot it is outside.

United Arab Emirates
This area was once a part of a bigger palace. Not much is written about this location though it was a significant home during the late 18th century and has recently been restored. The house is striking against the backdrop of the ruined houses that surround it.
Aussie Sports Bar
On the top floor of the Rydges Hotel is the Aussie Legends Sports Bar. Lots of matches are shown on TV here. Wednesday is Ladies Night, where ladies get free cocktails from 7-10pm. At other times drinks are just as expensive as they are everywhere else in Doha, i.e. QR 25 for a bottle of Corona. Tuesday is Trivia Night, hosted by Big Al the Aussie quizmaster. The winning team gets a QR 250 voucher for food and drink at the bar.
