The Jazz at Lincoln Center, a jazz community, education, and performance cultural center in New York City, has opened it's first non-US branch in Qatar!
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha is located at the St. Regis Hotel; here's what they have to say:
Doha embraces a new Jazz Age
Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha brings a taste of the jazz world, in every sense, to the region for the first time ever.
Classic jazz is often about improvisation on a classic theme and this is an approach which inspires the jazz culture cuisine presented to guests and visitors at their table when they dine at Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha. The menu may change monthly, but Bourbon Streeet Crawdaddies, mouthwatering soups and soul-satisfying sandwiches are always on offer.
Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha is very much part of a continuing tradition. Since the original Jazz Age, at the dawn of the 20th century, jazz has been the soundtrack to the St. Regis experience. The Rooftop Ballroom at the landmark hotel in New York has played host to many legends, with performances from the likes of Count Basie Duke Ellington and Buddy Rich.
At the St. Regis Doha, a program of jazz performances selected by the connoisseurs at the world-famous JALC New York – artistic director Wynton Marsalis – mix virtuosity with verve to entertain and enlighten.
Sensational jazz demands an equally sensational setting, and Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha takes place in a wonderfully theatrical ambience that recalls a legendary jazz venue of the golden era.
Like modern jazz itself, cocktails bring a contemporary freshness to authentic greats and the new-world wine selection is the largest in Doha.
This is simply awesome... if I go to Qatar, that's where you will find me!
