Strata Lounge

Cocktail Bar in Doha

On the 56th floor of the InterContinental's city branch, off Al Wahda Rd, this is a head-spinning venue, a state of affairs that has as much to do with the mixologist's concoctions as the vertiginous views. The only challenge is working out which 'vertical bus' delivers you to the top floor. Happy hour runs from 6pm to 8pm.
