Beefbar Sets Sail to Doha’s Picturesque Seaside

Set within two transformed floors at the majestic Lusail Yacht Club, Riccardo Giraudi’s hit restaurant practically floats on the water thanks to Humbert & Poyet’s airy Art Deco–inspired interiors.

Opening Shot is a column that peeks inside new hotels, restaurants, bars, and shops with dreamy interiors.


Location: Doha, Qatar

Designer: Humbert & Poyet

On Offer: After blockbuster landings from Monaco to Mexico City, Qatar’s first iteration of the famed Beefbar sets sail across a pair of floors within the Lusail Yacht Club. Humbert & Poyet launch their interiors with a lobby defined by vegetal bas-relief walls and anchored by a monumental custom desk in Verdi Mediterraneo marble. Downstairs, velvet banquettes form fine dining destinations among the fluted columns, partitions of notched travertine or Verde Luana marble, and stained glass screens. The lobby’s bas relief greenery winds its way towards the ceiling of the private dining room, with neo-classical arched doorways in Verdi Alpi marble keeps things flowing. And upstairs, the lounge thinks pink, with marble panel floors and towering 20-foot-tall ceilings topping the grand, highly decorated ceramic columns.

Standout Amenities: Custom walnut seating beckons guests onto the outdoor terrace, with its geometric flooring of alternating Navona travertine and Verdi Alpi marble tiles. While there’s not a bad seat in the house, up here offers the best of Beefbar’s panoramic sea views—just the spot to make your way through menu highlights including a Signature Carpaccio with za’tar and maple syrup, a Tomahawk of Wagyu beef, and a Baklava Cheesecake with pistachio and orange zest.
