“Great little cocktail bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Nice to go to before eating at ne of the Marriot restaurants. Décor is lovely--little stars on the ceiling, stained glass circles on the floor--nice tables. Happy hour has a small selection-but ok. We went for my BD and they picked up on my ID it was my BD--and we were given 2 free shots/ Waiters very friendly, helpful, polite. Recently they changed their drink table snacks form dried veggies to crisps--but they refill as needed. It is a great little bar.

“My Chill Out Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

If I wanna disappear for a night, have cocktails and a natter -- there's no such place in my mind but to Glo.

One thing that really fascinates me is the mood of the bar. Although honestly speaking, I kinda hate presenting my ID everytime I visit the place. Well, government policy. #OnlyInQatar!

Another reason to visit is their monthly new cocktails menu. Always fab!

Try their mini burgers -- yum yum!

“Great quiet place to chill - their cocktails are amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

I love going to this place with my friends. Especially if we wanna talk over some cocktails. The music isn't loud, so we can still enjoy a conversation. And the service is superb. I recommend this place to anyone.

“Average Bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

To start off a comment had been made on heavy smoke spoiling this property, load of rubbish, and anyone who does not smoke and hates smoke, then stay home as every bar in Doha allows smoking, I am a non smoker by the way. This is an early doors bar for a few cocktails and a chat, probably no longer than an hour spent in the place. Meet up, get a few drinks in and move on. Chilled out atmosphere, worth a visit.
