It might have been a long day, but it has to end at Mondrian’s club. Black Orchid is the place to see and be seen in Doha. Handcrafted speaker doors, secret tunnels, plush VIP seating and two bars make this a sophisticated, bespoke experience in a truly immersive atmosphere.

9am – Breakfast at CUT

At Mondrian Doha, guests experience a fairytale environment and a celebration of moments, people and luxury in its pure essence.
