Time Out Says

Stretching across almost the entire rooftop of the Marsa Malaz Kempinski, Illusion opened to much fanfare in early 2016. The olde-worlde-meets-new interiors were designed by Creative Clinic, the team behind some of the most progressive and eye-opening venues in Dubai (Blue Marlin Ibiza, The Act and Catch NYC) and the plush sofas and dramatic style make it one of the more obviously plush locations in Doha. Spread over three rooms and an outdoor terrace there is a strict drss code and this is a place for Doha's moneyed residents to come to see, be seen and, when the mood takes them, nod their heads to live DJs.
