Beirut has clubbing redefined and no trip to Lebanon is complete without a proper night out.
Gemayze - which is one of the oldest neighbourhoods of the city - is packed with great little bars and restaurants tucked in the French-mandate buildings that line Gouraud street and its alleyways. Beautiful, old Lebanese homes have been restored into decadent eateries and bars and our Concierge can tell you what's to try.
Hamra has lots of buzz and offers an ideal portrait of the more bohemian, young, and cosmopolitain part of the city and preserves some of 1950's Beirut. It is it more urban than "colonial" Gemayze and is also a hot spot with bars and snacks open till late at night.
Starting May and June and all the way till around October, rooftop terraces open citywide and become the most sought-after bars and clubs of Beirut. Skybar, White, our very own Cherry on the Rooftop to name a few all offer a unique wining or clubbing experience with sweeping views of the city and the Mediterranean. It's warm and breezy and lots of dress-to-impress - no proper Lebanese would go out unprepared!
Music Hall is not to be missed either - and it's open year round. A converted indoor cinema in the winter, outdoor garden arena in the summer, it stages a wide array of live music performances with anything from gipsy bands to jazz and rock, along with our favourite Lebanese music and performers from the region. It's fun, it's engaging, and frankly quite unique.
Ladies in heels and gents styled up as Beirutis know how to party and our Concierge are here to get you into the hippest places. For more information and to reserve, please contact the Concierge at +961 (0)1 962 868 or email@example.com
