The Ritz-Carlton, Doha is honoured to announce the launch of STK Doha, which is scheduled to open its doors end of January 2019!
STK Doha will be located on the top floor of the city’s newly renovated Ritz-Carlton Hotel, overlooking the Arabian Gulf and featuring exceptional city views. The restaurant is expected to have seating for 150 guests and will feature STK’s classic menu along with the brand’s signature décor.
Originally from New York City, STK offers a modern and upscale twist on the American steakhouse concept, with culinary excellence, a modern ambience and chic décor all blended into one. With a pulsating atmosphere generated through a series of programmed entertainment, live acts and guest DJs, the trendy upbeat steakhouse located on the highest floor of the hotel is set to become the ultimate dining and nightlife destination in Qatar.
Fusing an industrial-chic warehouse aesthetic with refined design elements; STK Doha offers a variety of seating options to cater for all; a lounge with a white marble bar, a dedicated dining area with dark-wood flooring with large banquette and booth seating. The most unique feature will be STK’s ‘iconic wall’ that will have an array of ceramic longhorns laid out.
