Walk through a secret tunnel to reach Doha’s newest and most exclusive nightclub. The attention to detail is immaculate here, and the vibes are top-end sophisticated. Step past handcrafted speaker doors to see gold-framed mirrors around you and enter a place where the city’s most happening folk are busy hanging out. We’re the happiest that this new address is also the classiest.

Don’t want to dress up on a weekend? Challenge accepted. We’ve located a brand-new pub at the Hilton that is every lazy weekender’s dream. The dress code is chill, the vibe is laid-back and FNK is just what you need for a Thursday night kickback or a catch-up with pals. Comfy couches and artsy décor are the highlights, as, of course, is a comfort foods menu that’s got your name all over it.

Fancy some cuttlefish salad and paella arancini while listening to contemporary tunes, as a beautifully dressed performer (possibly with a lamp on her head, possibly not) sashays past you? Well, then you’re in luck because the Pearl at Illusion has just opened, and it is an absolute stunner! The setting is glamorous yet satisfyingly laid-back, with bespoke décor and soft furnishings. There’s a circular bar right in the centre, surrounded by leather chesterfields. And there’s also great music, live entertainment and excellent food at a location to remember. Looks like our weekend nights are sorted.
