The Secret Garden is a rooftop bar located on the famous island called “The Pearl”, with a great atmosphere, delicious food and a skyline view that will please any eye. During our visit we tried many signature dishes and drinks, in the lovely and party friendly vibe that surrounds the whole terrace. Read all about it here:
If you don’t know the direction here, it can be quite tricky to find the entrance. It’s located in a parking garage – like a classic speakeasy - and share the same entrance as the famous and popular night club called Illusion. Illusion and The Secret Garden belongs to the same group but are two completely different venues.
Actually, the vibe up on the terrace have two different shapes. During early evening the atmosphere is very calm and sophisticated. Perfect for a dinner and some pre cocktails. But the later the evening goes by the vibe starts to get livelier and livelier by each hour. During these hours The Secret Garden is the ultimate place for having drinks with a view in a party friendly environment. The Live DJ also helps creating this fantastic atmosphere.
And for the view, you’ll notice the lovely skyline view from the moment you set your foot on the terrace. Sweeping views of the Doha skyline and the ocean. The view is great, but if there’s something we really loved with this rooftop bar, it must be the amazing service. Wow! Fast, friendly and always with a smile. Just the way it should be. Lot’s of cred to the staff and the restaurant managers for this.
As always, I always begin with a Negroni before the dinner. And they know how to make a good Negroni at The Secret Garden. Cold, bitter and refreshing – perfect. We also tried some mocktails which all tasted great.
Drinks where good, but if there’s something they are famous for here, it’s the food. And we tried so much food that we barely could walk afterwards. Tacos, spring rolls, skewers, edamame beans, fried chicken and the famous pizzas. The Secret Garden probably have the best pizzas you can find in Doha. We were told to try the mushrooms pizza with truffles and the Margherita. And so we did. If you like truffles you will be super satisfied. You could smell the truffles from far away when the waiter came with the pizza.
If we must recommend the best rooftop bars in Doha, The Secret Garden is easy one of them. Come here around 9:00 PM and continue the party at the night club Illusion after your visit. The ultimate party evening. Extra plus for the fantastic service and delicious drinks and food.
