The rooftop on the 15th floor of DoubleTree by Hilton just got a whole lot fresher since they revamped PURE Lounge and introduced their new BBQ offers during the weekends. We visited PURE last Friday to check out the revamped space and savour their selection of different cuts.
PURE is classy, chic, minimalistic and elegant with an upscale decor. Dominating the space is a beautiful pool in the middle of the happening hub. Lush couches in different corners where you can recline in privacy under the spectacular view of Doha’s skyline are also part of the vibrant and modern decoration. On the far left a more private area can be spotted where you can mingle with your friends while sipping your prefered beverages, dancing to your favourite tunes and enjoying delicious bites. PURE has a capacity of 600 people and opens from Sundays to Saturdays from 6:00 p.m. till 2:00 a.m. and on Fridays from 4:00 p.m. till 2:00 a.m. Aside from the regular menu on offer patrons can now enjoy a succulent BBQ every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6:00 p.m. till 9:00 p.m. Their aim is to make something fabulous out something as simples a piece of meat and they don’t disappoint. Culinary competition is as hot as the climate in Doha during the summer, and this establishment is definitely up for the race. It delivers high quality food and good value for money. The mains on the BBQ menu not surprisingly focus on, lamb chops, tenderloin, ribeye, chicken thigh, lamb kofta, shrimps, shish taouk, seabass and Brazilian pineapple. The star of the menu by far is the tenderloin. It melts in your mouth and every mouth full is to be savoured and enjoyed. It’s an outstanding cut to start a BBQ, peaking our curiosity about the rest of the menu items. You can accompany the tenderloin with different sauces such as the chimichurri and pepper sauce. Equally fantastici is the shish taouk, that is so juicy and tender, with a very rich and intense flavour accompanied by a garlic sauce. We also recommend the seabass and shrimps. In general all dishes are very well cooked and would please anyones’ palate. After such a feast there is no way we can contemplate dessert so we recommend trying a slice of the sweet Brazilian pineapple. Pure Lounge is without a doubt a stunner for its view, its menu, its music and its outdoorsy ambiance.
