Default Doha Happy Hours

Hey all

Still settling in here and need some first Thursday night advice pls

I'm here with a bunch od Aussies and we're looking for a happy hour that extends past 7pm, all the ones near here (Crowne Plaza area) seem to finish at 7 (as far as I'm aware) so by the time we get out of the sweat-shop they're almost over

All assistance in helping me out-booze my Antipodean compadres greatly appreciated

Its quiet usually. I was told the pool bar did a happy hour. I can't confirm this though. I might be able to let you know at about 5:30pm lol

If you go to west bay - Wahm in the W Hotel is HH until 8pm.
