Inspired by Hollywoods ‘Film Noir’ genre from the 1930s to the 1950s, this newest addition to Doha’s nightlife brings with it the mood of opulence and sophistication. I was fortunate enough to be invited to the official launch premiere of Noir Lounge & Club, located at the Melia Hotel in Doha. Starting the evening with a champagne reception to the sound of soft house music, Noir’s atmosphere gives the feel of a moody bar in Mayfair and is something I can imagine is difficult to recreate in the Middle East!
The balance of cocktails and bar snacks available is second to none, and I believe there is a real market for an exclusive, relaxed lounge bar of sort in Doha. I can’t recommend this bar highly enough if you’re looking for a feel of West End London in the middle of an indian summer.
I’ve included a few photos below from the night, enjoy!
