I don't drink - but this bar is worth adding to the list of good things to do in Qatar. It's quite a scene. In Winter, sit outside on the terrace - and order a 14 year old scotch- and enjoy the cool breeze. It's quite agreeable. The only place to purchase alcoholic drinks in Qatar is at the hotels.

It's a bar, not a real restaurant. Frequented by expats. Happy hour from 5 to 7. We went as a group on a Friday evening. Arrived at 5 minutes to 7 , the place was full of smoke and a group of Brit expats standing around the bar doing shots and making fools of themselves. We found a table as close to the entry as possible to avoid the smoke. When I asked if happy hour prices where applicable I got told no, it's now seven. All of our group checked our watches and phones and we still had five minutes to run. So I found the floor supervisor and rectified the time issue and we ordered. One of our group went to use the toilet and we got hassled by a drunken brit old enough to know better about taking the chair, to the point where i had to be a bit more than polite to get the message across that the chair was being used. Eventually one of his mates dragged him away. We stayed for a couple of drinks each before heading off for dinner. We would have stayed longer but the drunken side show was getting tiring. Look minus the smoke and the bad behaviour by Brit expats it would be a winner. So tip for management, ban smoking inside, send them out doors, enforce responsible serving of alcohol and have venue duty managers do their job and cut drinks to drunks and have security remove them if a nice request to leave does not work. Has potential to be a real winner but on this occasion just average.
