Ali Bin Ali Holding’s 21 High st at Katara – the Cultural Village has added a new dimension to fun during the summer months in Qatar, making the ‘ultimate outdoor shopping destination’ the coolest place to spend your leisure time in, with family and friends.

And to experience this fascinating ambiance, an exclusive media gathering was organized on June 25, 2019. Members of the local media and bloggers were invited to relish the cool outdoors and enjoy a sit-down dinner at the popular Russian restaurant – Café Pouchkine Qatar.

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.

You can blissfully forget about the soaring temperature of 40°C or the humidity level and walk under the open blue sky at 25°C as you browse through the exclusive boutiques on the premises. Imagine not having to bother about the summer heat while you enjoy your favorite beverage at an outdoor café. 21 High st has made this a reality by making summer feel like spring.

Talking about this unique feature, General Manager of 21 High st Mr. 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.”
