The Rooftop

A fashionable rooftop bar with top views

It’s all in the name at The St. Regis’ open-air bar The Rooftop. With the outside temperatures dropping, look no further than this long-time favourite to enjoy a drink (or three) while basking in Doha’s glorious winter.

The effortlessly cool, urban-chic atmosphere is evident upon arrival. The sleek and modern furniture stand in direct contrast to the traditional opulence of the rest of the hotel, while the projected light patterns surrounding the bar are reminiscent of some of Beirut’s most stylish outdoor terraces. There are plenty of low backed leather sofas, which aren’t the comfiest, but good enough for a chat with friends if you don’t want to join the dancefloor.

There are some interestingly named mixed beverages, including one infused with melon and cucumber. The house beverages start at QR35 during happy hour from 7pm until 9pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.

There’s a decent selection of bar bites and our waitress suggests the mini chicken chimichangas.

The DJ sets the pace of the evening perfectly. She begins with some slower covers of various dance songs, allowing to engage in conversation, before uplifting the mood with more upbeat R&B and reggaeton tunes. A series of screens play almost hypnotic, multi-coloured motifs, driving the atmosphere forward.

The Rooftop offers a comforting place for friendly catch-ups, while simultaneously providing the perfect setting for those who are looking for a mid-week party. It’s this fusion that will ensure this venue remains a mainstay of the Qatari capital’s nightlife during the winter season.
