“Try the Sliders”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Glo is a great place to relax after work. It's quieter than Wahm at W Doha or The Lounge at Kempinski. You can even carry on a conversation. Nice service. The staff always remembers us. It doesn't open until 5 pm; and if you're not staying at the Renaisance or Marriott in West Bay, you'll need a passport or Qatar residence permit to get in (a normal requirement in many bars in Doha). The bar snacks at Glo are fantastic. There are complimentary crisps served with delicious dips and, from the bar menu, the best sliders on the planet. There's also a good- quality filet. It's tiny. So if you want a "real meal", you should head upstairs to New York Steakhouse.

“Come and glo!!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We unfortunately did not visit Glo from the start of our stay but once we found it we returned many times. Happy hour is great-longer than in the sports bar-which is good when alcohol is so expensive everywhere. Very friendly and polite staff who seem genuinely pleased to see you when you return.

“funny night”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Went here with a friend when staying at the Marriott hotel. Need you passport or residence card to get in. Looks really nice and the service was good, prompt and attentive. My friend had a cocktail dropped on him which I thought was funny at first but the waitress was clearly very embarrassed. The cocktails are made with lots of real fruit in them and are very nice. Good atmosphere.

“Will return...”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Went here last night with my gf and we both were happy with the food, service and ambiance of the place.

We arrived around 5pm and the place had just a few other patrons, which was fine by us as we were looking to have a quiet bite to eat and a drink.

The happy hour drink menu was a plus and the free valet parking is also very nice.

We'll be back.

“Quiet and Laid Back Bar”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I`ve visited this bar 4 times and each time it has been very quiet as regards other customers, not really the happening place to be on a thursday night, but mid week its quite a decent place to go for a few quite drinks. The location is quite handy regardless where in the city you are travelling from. Service is very good and the option to sit at the bar or table is always a nice one to have.
