21 High st at Katara – the Cultural Village “has added a new dimension to fun” during the summer months in Qatar, making the shopping destination “the coolest place” to spend one’s leisure time, with family and friends.
“The incredible outdoor cooling system at 21 High st, which is one of its kind in Qatar, offers visitors a comfortable and cool climate. The attractive architecture, with wide open spaces and unique ancient European style, makes it an appealing, walkable destination for the whole family,” according to a press statement issued by Ali Bin Ali Holding.
An exclusive media gathering was organised recently, where members of the local media and bloggers were invited to experience the ambience, relish the cool outdoors and enjoy a sit-down dinner at the Russian restaurant – Cafe Pouchkine Qatar.
“You can blissfully forget about the soaring temperature of 40C or the humidity level and walk under the open blue sky at 25C as you browse through the exclusive boutiques on the premises. Imagine not having to bother about the summer heat while you enjoy your favourite beverage at an outdoor cafe. 21 High st has made this a reality by making summer feel like spring,” the statement noted.
Talking about this unique feature, 21 High st general manager Tolga Engin said: “21 High st is designed to be a multi-dimensional project – reiterating the commitment to Qatar’s tourism and commercial progress. We are proud to bring to you the first lifestyle destination in Qatar with an outdoor cooling technology. The outdoor cooling system at 21 High st triumphs over the soaring summer months in Doha and allows our visitors to enjoy the outdoors. You need to experience it to feel the difference.”
Built on approximately 40,000sq m, 21 High st is home to luxury, fashion, watches and jewellery brands from around the world, including the iconic French department store, Galeries Lafayette. It also features some exclusive dining options and cafes, as well as gourmet retail outlets.
