Drinking In… Beirut
If you're spending warm summer nights in Beirut, the diamond of the Middle East, the place to be is at one of their sizzling rooftop bars overlooking the city, a cool, cultured cocktail in hand. Make a few notes right away on your mobile, because even the hotel concierge won’t have this kind of inside information.
Kick off your evening at Square Lounge in the Raouche area. The cosy atmosphere, incredible cocktails and great music will definitely get your night off on the right foot. Square Lounge’s vibrant feel is a great pre-club venue.
Beiruf is well regarded as one of Lebanon’s greatest spots for cocktails and smooth vibes. Located directly beside the port, the uber trendy establishment provides one of the best views of the city by night. Routinely featuring some of the world's most acclaimed DJs, Beiruf is an absolute must for nightlife seekers.
If you're looking for something a little more relaxed but equally trendy and upscale, check out open-air lounge Sun7. Located on the rooftop of the Palm Beach Hotel, their chic cocktail hour starts early, and the music and crowd only get sexier as the day fades to night.
Then there's the awe-inspiring views and sophisticated air of Iris, a stylish cocktail bar and lounge located in the heart of the city. This urban escape is one of Beirut’s newest nightlife attractions, drawing bikini-clad, sun-drenched cocktail lovers and refined, cuff-linked diners alike.
