If you’ve been missing a good reason to spend an evening at the Sharq Village, we’re just here to casually mention that the legendary rooftop bar Iris has just opened its doors to the public in a stunning new location.

If you’re big on the party circuit, you’ve likely heard of Iris and the Doha version of this popular nightlife spot promises to impress with its signature creative mixed beverages, incredible sunset views and live, smooth lounge music.

Located at the Sharq Village and Spa, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Iris will come alive during sunset hours with its chilled music that will pick up pace as the night goes on. Fridays will have the best and most playful vibes at an unconventional party brunch between noon and 5pm (hurrah for five long hours) and guests can look forward to an extensive menu of international meals and creative fruit mixed beverages and regular beverages in a sophisticated ambience with splendid views of the city.

The food menu is plenty exciting – we’re talking delicious Mediterranean, Japanese and South American dishes from Iris’ award-winning menu. A star feature of the menu is the Iris Raw Bar, drawing on elements of Japanese and South American cuisines and serving a small but impactful traditional maki menu with a modern flair. Expect several other raw specialties, too.

A bar, restaurant and lounge, Iris Doha offers a multifaceted experience to guests, balancing an upscale and fun environment.

There are indoor and outdoor seating areas, offering the perfect amount of seclusion coupled with a lively outdoor atmosphere.

We’re positive this is going to be an unrivaled lounge experience in Doha. The décor is trendy yet upscale and classy yet carefree. We love the signature bright bulbs in metallic fixtures installed above the bar areas throughout the venue. Also, the open-air ambience provides the perfect vantage point for Doha’s brilliant sunsets while letting the experts muddle up some of their signature, hand-crafted creations. When it comes to mixed beverages, Iris pioneered an inventive approach years ago and luckily, the expert mixologists are bringing that same talent right here to Doha.

The soundtrack for the open-air evenings at Iris Doha’s new home comes courtesy of curated live gigs by international and local bands and singers along with resident DJs playing a mix of chillout and upbeat house every day. The venue is also big on art, so expect galleries and individual pieces by artists and designers from different parts of the world to be housed at Iris Doha.

We’ll see you for sundowners on Friday at the table closest to the sea.
Open Sat-Thu 5pm-2am; Fri noon-2am. Sharq Village & Spa, Ras Abu Aboud (4425 6666).
