It’s a foodie’s world
Restaurents in Lebanon are delicous and a must ! This city is beautiful and rich and that reflects in its diverse restaurants. You can find just about any type of cuisine here and some of the coolest concepts. A must visit for good meals to share and a glamorous cocktail with a view is the Cherry on the Rooftop at Le Gray in the city centre. It’s in one of the 5 star hotels in the centre with a magnificent rooftop you’re sure to create great memories !
The night life scene is like no other
Forget what you know about partying. Beirut is a whole other world. Discover everything possible. Not only does the city really come to life in the summertime, but its rooftops do, too. The ultra-exclusive Skybar (where you can watch the sun rise behind the mountains and reflect on the sea), White (with amazing R&B nights) and Iris (go for sunset drinks and live music) are the top scenes. Otherwise, for street-level fun, the newish bar Black provides plenty of visual stimulation with its multitude of screens and neon signs. Mar Mikhael Street and Gemmayze have Brooklyn-esque bar scenes. Grand Factory is the place to dance the night away, and when it gets really late (or early), B 018 is the most unique spot to wrap things up.
SUN SUN SUN
What’s better than a sunny day at the beach ? In Lebanon the possibilities are endless. There are many beach clubs and resorts that mix the gorgeousness of the cerulean-colored sea with soft sand and pretty, cosmopolitan people — no burqinis here! Eddé Sands in Byblos is one of them, with daybeds, a restaurant, spa and multiple pools — another club, Lazy B, is located just south of the city. Madame Bleu, right in Beirut, offers the best poolside food.
Wine ? Yes please !
Lebanon is one of the oldest wine-producing sites in the world. Grapes have been turned into delicious nectar in the region for thousands of years. The Beqaa Valley is the most known region. You can drink Lebanese wine at most restaurants, or head to the picturesque grounds of Ixsir, located just outside Betroun, for a tasting and tour — for a real treat, go on the weekend when its restaurant, Nicolas Audi à la Maison d’Ixsir, puts on a comprehensive and gloriously traditional Lebanese lunch buffet. You’ve never seen anything like it.
