Other Experiences to Look For

Private Party: MexiHouse, The Latin Fan Fiesta

What Is MexiHouse

Fans looking for an independent party and/or looking to embrace latin culture, food/drinks and dance where matches will be displayed on large screens will be excited to know that MexiHouse fills the void!

This event also daily, 20 Nov to 18 Dec, and is hosted at the Waldorf Astoria in Lusail where the pavilion is expecting upwards of 7,000 people per day.

The Argentina vs Mexico game is the highest in demand and for those of us unable to attend the match in person, MexiHouse could be the perfect destination. MexiHouse roots lie in Mexico so keep that in mind if cheering against Mexico!

Private Party: Budweiser’s Club Hotel

The W Hotel in Doha will open its door to provide fans a private party with musical guests and dancing.

If you’re looking for late night entertainment, this could be an option for you. The doors open daily at 10pm. The listed performance list from the site includes Lil Baby, Jason Derulo, Craig David, and Peggy Gou.
