Time Out Says

Sometimes, we need a reminder of Qatar’s beautiful coastal geography. Enter nautical-themed bar The Divers Club, finally here to jog our memory over mixed beverages.

The Divers Club is the recently opened sister bar of Pearl Social at Marsaa Malaz Kempinski and can be found on its upper decks (who doesn’t love a good naval pun?).

As we walk into the bar its theme is quickly apparent. There are decorative touches of boats, beaches and fish. It’s tastefully done, though, and creates a classic, cosy ambience fit for luxury cruise captains and their comrades.

The Divers Club serves classic beverages with a modern twist, as well as its own concoctions. One of its signature drinks, the pearl diver, is a delicious mix of Caribbean beverages and juices, with sharp citrus undertones. It’s more reminiscent of the Caribbean than the Arabian Gulf. There’s a delightful selection of grape beverages and we decide to try a blush. The drink is nice and dry and not too sweet.

The menu also features classic hops from Europe, Latin America and South Africa and a range of quality premium beverages.

And with truffle and parmesan French fries on the bar snack selection, The Divers Club ticks the box for sophisticated food options. Other bites include goat’s cheese churros and beef sliders.

Although it is quiet on a Saturday night, the electro lounge music and hushed tones of the smartly dressed guests and waiting staff create a rather stylish setting for catching up with friends.

We have it on good authority from the waiting staff that weekends are incredibly busy with resident DJs amping up
the volume.

The Divers Club is certainly on the pricier end of the scale, but it’s a welcome addition to Doha’s bar scene for those of you who like your high-end bars served nautical style. All aboard.
