O’Hara: Doha’s Techno Epicenter


O’Hara at the W Hotel in Doha

Doha’s nocturnal landscape is as diverse as it’s ever been, with plenty of choices to go out on the weekends and celebrate. Friday nights though go to O’Hara, with an impressive 2019 lineup that puts this intimate club in one of Doha’s trendiest 5-star hotels, on par with the region’s party capitals like Beirut.

After walking into a tunnel lined with the portraits of Techno pioneers and legends, such as Jeff Mills, Derrick May, Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Sven Vath and more, a laser-lined entrance makes way to the dancefloor and lounges.

The 2019 lineup includes heavyweights like Tale of Us, Agents of Time, Adriatique, Deborah Deluca, Pig&Dan, Hidden Empire and more. A solid Techno roster breaks with the more mainstream sound palettes Doha has been used to, making O’Hara a formidable underground music showcase that both locals and expats were yearning for, right in the heart of West Bay.
