Best Spots to see West Bay skyline views in Doha

Parks, cafés and restaurants with incredible views 

The West Bay skyline must rank among the most gorgeous in the entire world, even if we are undoubtedly biased (cough).  

No matter how often we utilize the same route, the renowned skyscrapers never cease to amaze us and make journeys along the Corniche feel special.  

These parks, coffee shops, and restaurants should do the trick if you’re seeking for the greatest spots in Doha to take in the West Bay skylin

Aqua Lounge

Aqua Lounge is located on the seventh floor of the Marriott Marquis, tucked away among West Bay’s tall structures. Standard Arabic fare like kebabs, hot and cold mezze, and pitas are available on the menu. This restaurant is particularly well-known for its shisha.  

5 p.m. to midnight every day. West Bay Marriott Marquis City Center Doha (4419 5510). 

Hotel Park

The park next door is a great place to see the West Bay skyline because the Sheraton Grand Doha has been there before it rose. There are several cafés and restaurants to choose from, and the park’s modest hills are a well-liked location for picnics (and picture shoots).  

Always available. the Doha Corniche,

MIA Park Coffee Shop

The MIA Park Coffee Shop may be our favorite place in the city to watch the West Bay skyline while we wait for the Museum of Islamic Art to reopen. It is impossible to describe the vision accurately.

The outstanding cuisine at Nobu, a multiple-time winner of our best restaurant award, ought to entice you. The largest Nobu in the world also has a spectacular perspective of the West Bay skyline from its location on a private island, which will have you going back time and time again.

All of the restaurants at the Banyan Tree Doha offer up fantastic views of the West Bay skyline, but it’s the rooftop lounge Vertigo that has stolen our hearts. The pan-Asian lounge is super stylish, and will serve as a perfect background for some Instagram snaps.
