It’s the month the whole country has been waiting for, so we’ve located these amazing terraces and rooftops, some brand new, for you to take it outside. Your next five weekends? Sorted.

Barefoot Thursdays
Barbecue on the beach already sounds perfect, but add tropical house music and free-flowing house beverages and we have a winning al fresco night out. They have a buffet-style spread with a (really) delicious selection of seafood and meats. It’s just the right amount of food and dessert. The music starts off low-key, and you can still hear the water against the shore. But everything, including your mood, will light up two hours into the night. Entry to the beach bar is free.
QR245. Four Seasons Hotel (4494 8600).

Wahm Wetdeck
Wahm has one of the best nightlife terraces in Doha. The Wetdeck, which was recently relaunched, is perfect for weekend chill with its cosy outdoor seating, shisha, beverages and great music. Book ahead to avoid disappointment. Trust us.
Free entry. W Doha Hotel & Residences, West Bay (4453 5000).

Cyan Lounge
We’ve seen Sharq Village through quite a few terrace-lounge openings and we frankly think the brand new Cyan Lounge is the best one yet (at least for now). There’s shisha, beverages and a selection of bites.
Free entry. Sharq Village & Spa, Ras Abu Aboud (4425 6666).

Last season, Rooftop at St. Regis was the place to be. They’ve just opened up again and we can’t wait to see which famous artists will grace the decks this time. We’ve already heard names like Gianluca Vacchi. The new concept of The Rooftop will provide guests with a slick, urban lounge in a stylish outdoor terrace.
Free entry. St. Regis Hotel, West Bay Lagoon (4446 0000).

Belgian Café
We really hope you’ve been to Belgian Café after their renovation. It’s massive, it’s lively and it’s still got the exact same vibe we were crazy about. And this time around, they also have a huge terrace, so that’s one fantastic night out you’re sorted with.
Free entry. Intercontinental Doha, West Bay Lagoon (4484 4444).
