A great place for some drinks and enjoying the great view of Doha.
Prices are somewhat expensive, but you pay for the experience...

Choose from a large cocktail menu, and you´ll get some free snacks as well.
Well worth the visit!

It'a a pity that this nice place turned into a commercial place. We are regular clients and were suprised yesterday by the very cheap setup (just to secure more people), no new year's eve menu (very basic food selection), price out of range. La cerise sur le gateau is valet parking stoped taking cars as parking full!!! Is this a five stars hotel? It sounds management doesn't really care

Went with friends, had some beers (QR 45 each) and possibly the worst Club Sandwich I have tasted in my life; dry bread, tasteless chicken, a few potato crisps and no condiments nor cutlery.

For 3 hours I did not see a waiter smile or say a simple thank you when ordering more beverages or paying the bill. Guess they know their view will continue to bring business so service not so important to them. Overall disappointed and would not recommend or return unless a change in their service is adopted.

Also, photos on TA are seriously misleading as they are from Pearl and not Skyview.

Went here with my gf last week and for the most part found the service and ambiance of the place to be quite pleasant.

We were a little turned off by the fact that a minimum of $100 had to be spent for us to enter without charge. Near the end we were just ordering drinks so we could meet our quota. Kinda of waste. Left a bitter taste, literally. Guess, they can get away with it.

We were seated at less than optimal vantage point as most of the other tables were reserved.

It was a pleasant experience, but don't know if we'll go again. Do go and check it out, as the city view is very cool.

The pictures on this post are not of Sky View Bar, so whoever has made the posts is clueless and providing the wrong impression. Skyview is located at La Cigale Hotel in the center of Doha, and during the cooler months is one of the better bars to visit. This is a roof top bar, and it is designed more for groups going out as it is more of a seating bar with an early chill out and chat atmosphere, livening up later on in the evening. You must book on the weekends and a few days in advanced, and you will be subject to a per person charge. There is a bar, however hey limit the numbers on those who wish to stand at the bar and are more towards coupes or females than groups of men, which is a good thing to be fair as some bars are just over crowded with makes who want to hassle women all night.

Views are reasonable, and the decor is decent, costs of drinks are a little higher than their bars,but the normal in this country is to reserve a table and order a bottle or two for the night, which when spilt covers the cover charge per person. The reason they place a cover charge is they want a certain crowd in, and such is their policy so it must be followed. The DJ here is probably one of the better in Doha playing a very mash up mix, and by midnight this place is normally bouncing with every table up having a bit of a boogy. Food is reasonably good as well in this bar, light snacks, sushi etc....

One post mentions that they arrived and the bar closed 15 minutes later. Remember that this is a Muslim country, and some days bars do have to close for specific days within the religion, probably unfortunate for them tha the night they chose was such a day. In general all bars are closed over Ramadan and for one night a year on the prophets day. Such as life, and a pointless post moaning about it.

Decent place, more for groups, but decent for a couples night as well. Identification is required and the age is 21 and over like all bars in the country.
