Al Jazeera opened its first cafe at Katara yesterday, where visitors can explore the worlds of journalism, news, current affairs and documentaries.
The cafe in Building No. 4 on Shakespeare Street gives an exclusive look into broadcast media and offers a selection of fresh organic dishes.
It features an interactive studio where visitors can take away videos of themselves reading from a teleprompter on an Al Jazeera set.
Pieces of Al Jazeera’s history are on display, including its first broadcasting equipment from 1996.
The cafe boasts a smart contemporary design for its zones, with menus loaded on tablets, and many flat screens with the network’s TV channels and digital properties keeping patrons captivated and informed.
Abdulla Alnajjar, Executive Director, Global Brand and Communications, said: “What we’re offering here is an experience that makes people feel part of Al Jazeera, Al Jazeera team and Al Jazeera environment.
“The cafe is a hub for conversation, debate and sharing of ideas and opinions.
“It fuses together our modern connections with the traditional idea of the coffee house as a centre of community.”
The cafe is open to the public and can be followed on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at/aljazeeracafe
