Irresistable rooftop bar is arguably the hippest nightspot in Doha right now Reviews

Nowhere is Doha’s quiet evolution from moribund backwater into slick hub more noticeable than at this irresistible rooftop oasis. We might baulk a little at the hefty prices but if you’ve got the cash, you’d be a fool to miss out on what is inarguably the hippest place in town right now. The views are utterly spectacular – the Gulf and the twinkling lights of the city’s ever-expanding skyline make for a heart-stopping backdrop to the evening’s revelries, as do the expertly made Cuba Libre and mojito cocktails.

There’s an unobtrusive soundtrack of laid-back deep house spun by a DJ, while the low-slung tables house chattering groups of well-heeled 20 and 30-somethings and giant plates of sumptuous-looking sushi are paraded around by slick waiters who seem to glide rather than walk. The overriding whiff of moneyed success may be off-putting to some, but in a place that has struggled for so long in the nightlife department, the presence of this glamorous show pony is a thing to be toasted. With champagne.
