Upscale bar with fun loving (and well-dressed) crowd in Doha

Time Out Says

Crystal is a sure bet if you’re looking for someplace a little posh, a little fun, and always a good time rife with fancy heels and fist pumping. It’s always packed, with crowds starting to appear around midnight, and a pricier drinks menu than many in the city. Music leans heavily on thumping bass with limited melody, but for the most part the DJs can be relied upon to play commercial hits that keep the floor heaving. This is not the spot for wallflowers: if sitting down is on your list, best mosey along because people go to Crystal to dance.

They also go to show off: dress code is fancy and posh, and men must be dressed accordingly or be denied entrance. Also be sure to remember your ID and your Crystal membership: both are strictly enforced for entrance. But they’re not foolhardy with their demands for fanciness: there’s a relaxing room built off the ladies room with squashy sofas for divas to rest their tired heels.
