Welcome to Shisha Bars

Shisha Bars

A quintessential Arab-world pastime - and a decent alternative for western visitors to Qatar who are missing their regular nightlife options - shisha bars are where friends gather to sit, chat and share a smoke of a water-pipe together. The design of the shisha pipe ensures that even non-smokers will find the experience smooth and gentle on their lungs, and the tobacco you use comes in a variety of delicious flavours such as grape, pineapple and vanilla. Bear in mind that since this is a very traditional recreational activity, women are not allowed in to the vast majority of shisha bars in Doha. However, there are some more foreigner-friendly shisha bars in Doha which will allow women in - the pick of these being Le Gourmet in Souq Waqif (for atmosphere), Al Mourjan on the Corniche (for the view), and Shisha Terrace at Sharq Village and Spa (for all-round luxury). A highly recommended tourist activity in Doha, a visit to a traditional shisha bar for some tea and a smoke makes for a great cultural experience, and presents a fantastic opportunity to engage with locals in a relaxed and convivial setting.

The official currency is the Qatari Riyal (QAR), which divides into 100 dirhams. The Riyal exchange rate is pegged to the US Dollar at QR 3.65.
