One of the hottest new editions to the sizzling nightlife scene in Doha, Noir Lounge is an alluring and exhilarating club in heart of Qatar’s capital. Let’s talk about the setting first, as walking into Noir feels like being transported to another time and place as the name and entire design of the club is inspired by the Film Noir genre of films that were all the rage in the middle part of the 20th Century. Moody purples and blacks surround you, and are contrasted with the occasional bold splash of lipstick red, exquisite retro booths, and even a few sets of dramatic swaying drapes. The whole place has a real ‘vintage lounge’ feel to it, but instead of calmly sitting while you appreciate the sounds of a crooner, it’s all about getting down to modern dance music here. A set of accomplished DJs spin the decks at Noir, keeping everyone dancing to deep house until the wee hours, with the help of a premium Turbosound audio system. We love it all, but it’s the bar and its fine cocktails that have seen Noir to our pages. The nearly venue-length bartop is the domain of Doha’s finest mixologists, as they crank out a dizzying mix of drinks to the beats. The tipples are then delivered by glamorously-dressed waitstaff, all adding to the vibe of the venue.
