    Sports Bar at Ramada Hotel: StreetNoyz!

    by jungles Updated Apr 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Doha doesn't have too many nightspots, but it does have StreetNoyz! They are a Filipino band who play every single night at the Sports Bar in the Ramada Hotel. The lead singer is a flamboyant young man who goes by the name of "Fruit Boy." He also has three lovely ladies as backup singers, though they sometimes take centre stage themselves. They're a cover band, nothing inspirational musically, just alot of fun.

    Aussie Legends Sports Bar: Aussie Sports Bar

    by jungles Updated Dec 31, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Located in the Al Sadd Merweb Hotel. The entrance policies here are very strange. If you are a woman, or with a woman, you will probably get in for free. However, if you are a single man, you may have to pay an entrance, or you may be told that it is a member’s own club and denied entrance altogether. Inside the club is small, although the mirror at the back gives the impression that it is larger than it really is, and dark - although the waiters’ trays helpfully light up when they serve you. A welcome change in Doha.

    Dress Code: No sneakers/tennis shoes or sandels

    Irish Harp: Nightlife-Irish Harp

    by Kilted Written Jun 14, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take the lift down from the lobby in the Sheraton, and you'll get to one of the newer bars in Doha. The Irish Harp has a great athmosphere, live music, actually looks and smells like an Irish pub, and, unlike Irish pubs nowadays, you can also smoke there. The drinks are not cheap, but this has not deterred its customers.

    Four Seasons cigar lounge: new year

    by call_me_rhia Updated Jan 22, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    dancing - new years

    We spent New Years Eve at the Four Seasons cigar lounge... alcohol is usually off-limits in Doha, except in a few posh hotels... and we wanted to toast to the New Year. We had not made reservations for the restaurants, and they were packed but the cigar lounge was cosy and emty, it had a small selection of (good) food and wines/cocktails - which suited us well.

    Right before midnight the restaurants had closed and downstairs, in the restaurants' halls, everyone could dance the night away.

    Dress Code: Casual smart is more than appropriate for the lounge

    Ras Al Nasaa: Chornicle evenings with sheesha (nargile)

    by iyigun Updated May 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    MAY2005

    Nice place,
    very good atmosphere, place and lights.
    local families. Evening place so arrive early, seems all place close at 24.

    Especially nargile
    (fruit tasted or regular tobacco smoke passing through water from a special coal heated aparatus )
    better known as sheesha was the best in town.
    Actually i do not smoke, but the smell was soo good, i tried and liked it actually.
    The thing about meals; they are no better than ordinary, and can be said as poor.
    Do not order fries.
    My best choice recommendation Tea with mint, and apple sheesha.

    Dress Code: casual clothing, keep in mind, its a family place of local qatari.

    Al Bandar Restaurant: Sitting by the dock of the bay...

    by bpwillet Written Apr 10, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Doha skyline at night

    The Al Bandar Restaurant chain is a great place to sit and relax on a great evening. March-May is a perfect time in Qatar because it is not too hot and not too humid yet. Perfect for enjoying a relaxing dinner outside on the back terrace of Al Bandar. The Doha skyline is constantly changing and has changed considerably in the last few years, and it will be a bit different even in a year from now. There are not the typical nightclubs or bars that you find in the west. However it is quite nice to sit out by the water with a sheesha, mint tea or coffee.

    Dress Code: Generally you will find people dressed in traditional clothes-the thoub and the abaya. However you will also be perfectly welcome in slacks and a nice shirt or decent length skirt or dress.

    During our stay at the Four Seasons I was attracted by its interior which is gorgeous, very chic and elegant.


    TIP:I can’t think of a better place to go to for a Cocktail, a Glass of Wine or some Champagne.A pianist performs in the evening and it is the perfect retreat for a pre-dining or late-night drink.

    LAVA: A Trendy Night Club -Worth visiting!

    by greekcypriot Written Dec 11, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Enjoying the ambience with some dainty morsel.
    4 more images

    We came here for the Guest Cocktail party. I would call it a gathering instead because it had nothing to do with partying the time we showed up. It was quite early (6:30pm) and there was soft music ideal for a drink and some chatting. We had a cocktail at first and then a glass of wine but in the meantime we tried several dainty morsel that were brought to us. Everything we tried here was of exquisite taste and quality I have to admit.

    Staff is courteous and attentive, and waiters kept coming back with more delicacies in the platters.

    We made ourselves comfortable inside close to the beautiful bar. I loved the cozy ambience and colours. Of course if you come here after 8.00pm or much later the atmosphere is totally different. It seems that it is a hot spot and an amazing Night Club.

    There are multiple offers each night so if you decide to come it is better to check beforehand the night that suites you best.

    From a brochure I had seen while there, I noticed that on Sundays it is the Hoteliers Night. Music from a DJ and a 50% discount on food and beverage for hoteliers and cabin crew.

    On Tuesdays let’s say it is the Ladies Night and out here ladies are offered free drinks until late. (Between us, Qatari women are constantly out having fun with their lady friends. They are much after entertainment and you will see them in the hotels coming for breakfast, lunch or dinner and in the evening they usually party the night out with their female friends. I bet they know well how to have fun and entertain themselves.)

    Opening hours from 8:00 pm to 02:00am, but have in mind that the night club remains closed on Saturdays.

    Consider dropping by if you happen to be around. I am sure you will love it.

    Irish Harp: The Sheraton's Irish Pub

    by Airpunk Written May 13, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Irish Harp, Doha

    Of course, you can't export the atmosphere of a pub in the Irish countryside one to one to high-class hotel in Doha. Still, the Irish harp is not a bad place to spend your evenings. Live music and football on the telly are here, though the music can vary from rock via Irish traditional to jazz. Peanuts are available for free with any drink, bar snacks and a la carte hot food are available for order. That said, it is a plastic upper class version of an Irish pub, but I still liked it. It is the closest to a pub Doha has to offer.

    Audience consists mainly of expats with hotel guests and other tourists representing only the second largest section. Please note that you have to register with a passport to enter the pub according to Qatar's law on alcohol.

    Garveys

    Garveys is the name of a 'European Family Club.' They've got a pool, gym, squash courts and a pool room. But what's the real draw here?? Well, the PUB of course! They have a liquour permit here, and you may drink here if you are a member. It's an expatriot bar, but other 'foreigners' can join for the day for 20QR.

    They have Guinness on tap, and plenty of Belgian Weissenbier. They also have a nice pub menu. I tried a grilled steak with mushroom sauce and chips.

    Out Back on the Beach: Intercontinental Hotel -Good Bands, beach parties

    The Intercontinental Hotel will frequently have live bands and other outdoor activities at night with the Doha nightscape for a background. Fabulous outdoor pool and health club, and great food at the Poloma (Tex-Mex) restaurant and the Za Moda (Italian). InterContinental Doha has the LONGEST PRIVATE BEACH and is located in the thriving West Bay, near the central business district and diplomatic area. A bit pricey, but service is great and on the 6th floor a full breadfast is included as well as 6-8 happy hour where cheeses, fruits and other goodies will fill you up. The lounge has a live band and is a popular place for Ex-Pats as well as locals.

    Dress Code: Business Casual is typical dress.

  • Paloma: Recently the most popular place in town

    by Fedzo Written Apr 25, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Paloma has become the most popular place in town, which is not always a good thing.
    A Tex-Mex Pub/restaurant with live band and Dj.
    Now there is an entrance fee for single men, and it's not always guaranteed to let u in.
    If u r staying in Doha for a while, u better get yourself a memebership by presenting your business card. very easy to get for Europeans/americans

    Dress Code: Strict dress code, Smart casual/Trendy, no Sneakers or T-shirts. Girls Wear whatever u want !!

  • Garvey's: Places not to go

    by jamesearlgreen Written Jun 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    from what I hear, Garveys is a 'strictly white' establishment. I have heard several stories of colored people being denied entrance at the door, even though the security guard himself is colored. I thought this was false until I once saw the manger (Mr.Garvey), ask an Indian fellow to leave, despite being with several other friends of cocasian desent. People working their claim it is a 'European family' club only, and others are not welcome. I think such establishments are disgraceful, and I hope you do to. I dont recommend this place at all, and hope you boycott it. GARVEYS IS A RACIST PLACE!!!
