Default Doha - Beerage

Failed to get my flight changed to 17:50 back to AD so stuck here till 22:50. Any recommended boozers - and how is DOH Airport for turning up semi-wankered?

The only one open in daytime is Belgian in Intercon mate. Champions bar opens at 5 with a happy hour QR25 a pint which fills up well. Thats at the marriott.

Ive not known anyone have probs at airport, depends on how blathered you want to get?

If the emmigration queue is as bad as the immigration one this morning - very blathered!

You can get a beer in the daytime at the Swissbel hotel. It's a dump but cheapish.

It's a bit out of the way. Go into the lobby, stairs to the right, coffee shop one side, bar the other. Only has Foster's and Heineken, 32QR a pint, fair old number of Lebo's getting banjaxed...

Be careful. I had a couple of lonely lunchtime pints in Madinat Jumeirah's Belgian Beer Caf whilst wife and kids were in the theatre at the weekend.

I was rollocked after a pint and a bit albeit on an empty stomach. Steer well clear of the Leffe. Lethal.

Cellar seems OK. No draught beer mind, but hey after a day like this the magners will do instead!

Pint and a bit of Leffe and you were pissed?

Hang your head in shame.

Turned up a little wobbly 45mins before the flight and got on OK. Slept until I landed. Happy days.

Didn't get to see much, but seemed an OK wee place. I guess work life must be the same as AUH, just less boozers to go to. Liked that it is small.
