Shisha Terrace at Four Seasons Hotel Doha

Relax like a local on a terrace or rooftop hangout

The Shisha Terrace is situated at the top of the Four Seasons Hotel and offers sweeping views of the city and sea. This relaxed and comfortable lounge has beautiful views and dedicated service. You’ll also find many traditional shisha spots in the historic Souq Waqif. Le Gourmet and The Corner Café are 2 of the area’s most popular shisha venues. But if you want a more upscale hookah experience, head to one of the city’s 5-star hotels.

Nobody knows exactly where the hookah – otherwise known as shisha – originated. Some historians claim it was invented in India before spreading to Persia. Others claim it was actually the other way around. Regardless of its history, the hookah still plays a prominent role in Arab culture. While you’re in Doha, you might want to kick back like a local by visiting a shisha bar.
