Highlights of your visit

  • Luxury brands

Al Hazm is a magnificent venue, testament to the efforts of its owner, who brought in marble from Tuscany, stone from Palestine, and artisans from Rajasthan in India. No expense was spared to create this venue, built in the style of classic Italian shopping arcades.  An outdoor ventilation system helps keep the white marble floors cool, allowing visitors to promenade in comfort, no matter the time of year.  With high-end boutiques, trendy restaurants and cafés, Al Hazm offers a host of extras such as limousine services, valet parking, a childrens’ area, and personal shopping.

The central courtyard in Al Hazm contains beautifully landscaped green spaces, inviting visitors to enjoy panoramic views of the complex.  Olive trees between 250-600 years old dot the greens, imported from Italy and Spain.  Parts of the venue are modelled after Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the world’s oldest shopping malls.

Eight years in the making, Al Hazm is a labour of love, as shown by its painstaking attention to detail.  The showstopper is its Galleria – a stone and marble arcade topped with a 40m glass dome.  Classical Greek and Roman style columns and water fountains have all been designed to enable visitors to immerse themselves in a European experience whilst in the heart of Doha.

The AlHazm Cultural Centre offers calm introspection amidst the hubbub of the complex.
