Drinking in Doha Qatar 

One of the most frequent questions I get when talking about my time in Doha is in relation to alcohol. As Qatar is a Muslim country people many people are unclear as to whether or not they can drink in Doha. So whether you are a visitor or resident here are some helpful rules to remember and also a breakdown of the best places to go for a drink in Doha

Can you drink in Doha, Qatar?  

The short answer is yes, residents and visitors can drink in Doha but there are some rules to remember:

  • The only places that alcohol can be bought in public is in 5* hotels
  • You must be 21 to drink in Doha.
  • To be admitted into bars you must have either your passport or Qatari residents permit with you.
  • It is an offence to be drunk or drink alcohol in public
  • Alcohol can not be brought into the country.
  • Residents can obtain a Liquor License to purchase alcohol at the Qatar Distribution Centre but this can only be consumed at your home.

The best places to drink in Doha 

So now that you know that you can drink in Doha here is my round up of the best places to go for a drink in Doha!

Place to Drink in Doha with the Best View 

There are so many places in Doha that have amazing views that it is difficult to find a bar without a good view but our two favourite places to drink with a view are:

Strata at The Intercon

This is one of the highest bar in all of Qatar and offers a great view across West Bay.

La veranda  

My personal favourite spot in Doha. La Veranda has lovely grounds right next to the sea and offers beautiful views of the West Bay skyline. I could sit there for hours watching the dhows go by. They also offer a great apperitivo hour.

Best pub 

The Irish Harp 

Another choice from the Sheraton. The Irish Harp is offers a great UK style pub experience

Best bar 

If pubs aren’t your thing then there are plenty of bars in Doha

Wahm

Has a great terrace overlooking West Bay and has a great choice of cocktails.

Champions sports bar 

This was a regular haunt of ours. An American sports bar that has an amazing pub quiz on the first Monday of every month. Be warned though it can get very smoky!

Best cocktail 

Hakkasan 

For me there is only one place in Doha that wins the crown for best cocktail and that is Hakkasan! More than your regular staples, Hakkasan offers some unique flavor combinations in a cool and trendy setting.

Best boozy brunch

St Regis 

The Middle East is famed for its boozy Friday brunches. The brunch which, in my opinion, has the best variety of alcohol beverages has to be the St Regis. Brunch is on every Friday 12:30pm-4pm.

Exceptions

PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning on visiting Qatar during Ramadan, no alcohol is served even in 5* hotels. The same is true on the Prophet’s Birthday.

Instagram and Qatar – Ten Most Instagrammable Places in Qatar

I am by no means an Insta-Expert but as a platform it’s one I am slowly getting to grips with and even more importantly falling in love with. There is no channel like it for giving me Wanderlust.

Whether it be sweeping landscapes, high footfall or detail shots for me Instagram is about location, location, location. Qatar is a beautiful country that offers a lot of diversity when it comes to photography from sweeping sand dunes to amazing urban architecture Qatar has you covered. So here is my instaqatar guide to the Ten Most Instagrammable Places in Qatar. Continue reading Instagram and Qatar – Ten Most Instagrammable Places in Qatar
