New Orleans-themed jazz bar in Doha

This new bar will take you straight to the heart of New Orleans

New Orleans-themed jazz bar in Doha

The first thing you probably think of when you hear the words ‘New Orleans’ is music. Granted, the Creole food and annual Mardi Gras come close, but as the birthplace of jazz, the Louisiana city will forever be associated with making music.

In fact, the history of NOLA (we’re being all hip now) helped give rise to a particular kind of food and music, the ripples of which are still felt worldwide today. And the latest place for those ripples to reach? You guessed it, right here in Doha. At the Kempinski Marsa Malaz to be exact.

N’awlins Jazz House celebrates the food, music and drinks of the South-Eastern US city.

When it comes to eats, the menu aims to transport you straight to The Big Easy, with jambalaya arancini, gumbo, and po-boy sandwiches stuffed with fried oysters, all inspired by Creole and Cajun cuisine. Renowned New Orleans dishes such as etouffee, muffuletta and beignets also form the basis of the culinary experience here.

The bar menu offers some truly authentic southern drinks as N’awlins Jazz House pays tribute to the grand masters of mixology.

They have honoured New Orleans with their concoctions that they say are timeless, classic and contemporary. The drinks speak of being nostalgic but with plenty of sophistication.

Offering quintessential NOLA décor, with Chesterfield interiors, N’awlins aims to make you forget you’re in the Middle East and instead deliver you The Crescent City.

The ambience is cosy and inviting, with large leather couches facing the stage. There you  can immerse yourself in the incredible music from the live performers. Expect to hear different styles from the live band, such as Dixieland, Afro-Cuban and jazz blues.

For an eclectic night among friends, an intimate evening out or a nightcap post dinner, we frankly can’t think of a better spot.

It’s small but with the live music, we’re inclined to believe this is one of the best new additions to Doha’s nightlife.
Open daily 6pm-2am. Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl-Qatar (4035 5555).
