Qatar: be ready for magic on NEW YEAR!

This New Year’s Eve, Shangri-La Hotel Doha is bringing New Orleans’ most acclaimed party to Doha.

The luxury city-centre hotel’s ballroom will be transformed into a theatrical New Orleans’ style Mardi Gras carnival, where guests can enjoy flamboyant street entertainment.

From lively jazz musicians and magicians to attention-grabbing silt walkers and exciting  acrobatic performances, guests will be treated to a night to remember.

Receiving a complimentary masquerade mask at the door, guest will enter a world of magical street style performances, delicious food and refreshments, and enjoy counting down to the New Year with a spectacular LED show.

Featuring nine live street food stations offering tempting New Orleans inspired cuisine as well as a DJ, dancefloor and stage, Shangri-La Hotel Doha has set the scene for a truly memorable New Year’s Eve.

Commenting on this year’s special celebrations, Alex Willates, General Manager said: “2017 has been an exceptional year for Qatar, its people and our hotel. We aim to see out the year in style with our biggest and most exciting party yet. We’re bringing the colourfulness of the infamous New Orleans carnival to Doha, so that all can enjoy the magic of Mardi Gras.”

Synonymous with New Orleans for well over a century, Mardi Gras was brought to America by French-Canadian explorers.

Today, the carnival which brings visitors to New Orleans from all over the world has been lauded for its colourful krewes (parade groups) and fabulous fun party atmosphere.

Shangri-La Hotel Doha’s Madri Gras New Year’s Eve party is on December 31, from 8pm – 2am. Guest can enjoy a carnival street party atmosphere with a smart yet relaxed dress code.

Tickets prices at QR600 per person include unlimited food and house beverages. Tickets are available online at
