It's worth having an afternoon tea here

InterContinental Doha has a glitzy new lounge

It’s no secret that we love eating at odd hours and now that we’ve tried almost every brunch in town, and brinner as a concept hasn’t hit Doha yet (take notes, hospitality people), we’re focusing on the only other delightfully decadent event – the afternoon tea. From classic tea and scones to fancy little sandwiches and tasty pastries, we’ve had our fair share of this affair.

There are plenty of afternoon teas to love in town, but we’ve currently got our eyes on the newest one at the InterContinental Doha. The entire hotel lobby had shut down for a few months and getting in was quite the struggle for a while. After a complete renovation, the hotel has finally reopened its lobby area and it is pretty impressive.

The new lobby is expansive, stylish and very luxurious. It’s highlighted by a beautiful centrepiece and surrounded by lots of classic and modern textures. If you walk a little further to the right, you’ll be stunned with the new lobby lounge that serves a delectable afternoon tea. The teal interiors will impress you.

The afternoon tea is served from 2pm until 5pm and starts at QR100. The Lounge offers light breakfast options alongside French viennoiseries and pastries. It’s a pretty perfect setting for a leisurely afternoon tea experience, or if you just want to pass by and savour the aroma of freshly grounded coffee, prepared by baristas. If odd hour meals are not on your agenda, you can still peruse the à la carte menu because the lounge is gorgeous. There are main courses such as beef tenderloin and miso-glazed seabass, sandwiches and a few tapas, too.

There are artisanal pastries and cakes by celebrity pastry chef and Valrhona ambassador Dimitris Chronopoulous. The menu is available from 7am to 1am every day.

You can unwind with the beautiful sounds of the resident pianist. It’s safe to say the five-month hiatus has been worth it. So whether you have a business meeting or just want to relax with a book, we highly recommend this revamped spot.   
From QR100. Daily 2pm-5pm. InterContinental Doha West Bay Lagoon (4484 4919).
