Editor’s Pick: Doha Bar & Lounge
By Kate Fry
Picture this: a warm breeze running through your hair; cocktail in hand as vibrant as it is delicious; the aroma of gourmet comfort food running through your nostrils. You’re probably imagining yourself on a tropical island, right?
Located on 31st Street in Long Island City, this place is anxiously waiting to give you that vacation feel we were all robbed of for the past year. Their food menu alone is enough to make your head spin, boasting a unique variety of fresh-from-the-oven pizza, handcrafted sandwiches and irresistible dessert options.
Speaking of making your head spin, you’d be a fool to miss out on their happy hour where they offer “delicious drinks for every mood,” and they’re not kidding. Come by between 3pm-7pm Monday through Friday to indulge in either their Froze, Doharita or Green Lantern cocktails for only $7. Yup – $7.
As if that isn’t enticing enough, we saved the best for last. Feeling extra thirsty? Upgrade your drink of choice to a Fishbowl for only $25. That’s right – a personal Fishbowl so beautifully crafted you’d think you’re sipping a piece of art. We recommend going for one of their signatures, like the Blue Hawaiian (rum, vodka, pineapple juice and blue curacao) or, inspired by quarantine’s very first craze, the Tiger King: Ciroc Peach and coconut rum blended with fresh peach. They even offer cocktails to-go, so no matter your poison, you can’t go wrong with this Doha deal.
