Anti-Valentine's day in Doha

Five venues in the Doha that are shunning Valentine's Day

Anti-Valentine's day in Doha

Valentine’s Day is a bit like Marmite, and if you fall on the side of hate, the thought of February 14 rolling around probably fills you with dread. You’re not alone. Luckily, there are some good old folks in the city who think that the day should mean discounts, DJ’s and themed menus for the less loved-up among us.

Hive Lounge

A DJ will be playing from 9pm until 2am and there will be a list of anti-Valentines-themed beverages to choose from.
Sun Feb 14, 9pm-2am. InterContinental Doha The City, West Bay (4015 8888).

Belgian Café

No dates are necessary to enjoy food from Belgian Café’s specially-created, anti-Valentine’s menu. Go with a group of friends, toast with some signature hops and listen to house.
Sun Feb 14, 7pm-2am. InterContinental Doha, West Bay Lagoon (4484 4954).
