Inspired by an English Manor House

Gordon Ramsay offers guests a variety of indoor and outdoor dining experiences over close to 1000 m2. Modeled after a grand English manor, the interior reinvents classical elements with a taste for contemporary style, featuring a palette of ivory whites and grays accented by pops of orange. Upon arrival, guests may enjoy an apéritif at The Conservatory, a pavilion  enclosed by screen fabrics printed with a contemporary British landscape motif. Inside the bar lounge, an oversized upside down-tree light installation plays with notions of the surreal and the fantastical. The circular space boasts a central seating isle as well as niches with furniture inspired by the classic Chesterfield sofa.

Grand double doors mark the entrance to the formal dining area, which has the features of a traditional room anchored by a large marble fireplace but shakes things up with contemporary crystal chandeliers. Plush carpeting and rectangular areas of silvery textured wallpaper framed by plasterwork wall moldings add warmth to the elegant space. At the entrance to OPAL by Gordon Ramsay, the pizza bar welcomes guests to a more casual, bistro-style dining experience. OPAL’s main dining room offers panoramic views over the Doha bay framed by a large central window.
