Bubbles on Two

Hotel changes but nightlife stalwart stays the same
  • 2

Time Out Says

The hotel may change its name, but Bubbles on 2 remains the same. This has been a stalwart in the Doha nightlife scene for years, and in fact was once the go-to spot, although it has faded into the background over the years. We’re not quite sure why: yes, the plaid arm chairs are a wee bit twee but overall, every time we go we’re reminded why we love it.

The drinks menu is still delectable, with a wide selection and bartenders willing to go off-book whether you want a special concoction or a juice made just to your liking. The food is solid, although stay closer to the bar nibbles and skip the ‘fancier’ options: they’re just really good at the basics, so why muck it up? We like that they manage to put things that weren’t deep-fried on there too, and we like that they allow you to book bigger tables for gatherings and parties. Service also has always been good—particularly when it’s busy, servers still manage to turn up frequently, and with two bars (one upstairs and one down) you never have to wait long to be served. We like the ambiance, we like that it’s relaxed and chill, and we tolerate the music (which can occasionally be too loud). We also like that it’s a nice spot for a classy stop, without being too fancy: you can come in in a cocktail dress and heels, but work clothes and jeans are equally acceptable. Plus, their prices are, dare we say it, reasonable!
