Some weeks ago, we went for an evening walk from Rawche to Manara, quite a long march for us hop on hop off sportslovers… I thought we could easily reach Zaytounay Bay, but no, we were captured by a fashion show at the Pool Bar of Riviera Hotel (here). It was visible to everybody on the promenade, although we had to focus to see the details, like the model’s outfit colors (blue & orange) and whether one model was really carrying a baby on the catwalk (yes she was). We stayed there for half an hour, leaning over the balustrade, watching the show together with a cute lonely cat. Above is a picture from the chic & stylish bar. I didn’t sneak in that day, non, I was there some days ago!
You think highways are boring and not the best place to go out? Well, the port highway in Beirut is home to many impressive clubs/lounges (one of which is B018, my post here). Have you ever noticed the super beautiful building above? I’ve always wanted to visit one of the places inside and was delighted to finally do that some weeks ago. Harbor 201 (here) was such a nice surprise. The dinner was deliiicious, the music was (mostly) our taste and the party was awesome, especially due to Julia’s hot salsa moves! Even our men couldn’t stop dancing! So now it’s time to try Kotch in the upper level. Is it a Sushi bar?, a Chinese restaurant?, no, a luxurious Turkish Hammam (here). Des surprises partout, this Lebanon!
Whiskey Mist rocks. Yes, it does (here). The red carpet at the entrance, the waiters in cute uniforms, the curved sofas, this charming bar, they all rock… Except the go go dancers: They juggle. With firesticks! There they were suddenly, dancing on fluorescent tables, wearing only black underwear (to like or not to like, this is here the question. I found a good answer on Ivy’s blog here). But you will definitely like the atmosphere of this nice and elegant nightclub at Phoenicia Hotel (here). And, as usual, don’t go there too early.. Rather spend the first hours of your evening in one of Beirut’s amazing rooftop terraces (more to come), and then come on time for Hisham, Beirut’s one & only Lebanese-German DJ!
Until recently I had never been to B018 (here), the world famous underground nightclub that looks like a bomb shelter. We went there three weeks ago and outed ourselves with a beginner’s mistake: We sat down on the banks that look like coffins – without opening them! Thank God we were almost alone until 2 am (me playing with the drinks cards). Then, suddenly, the place filled up with people from around the globe (they must have read the same New York times article!). And the party began! And it definitely reached its peak when the retractable roof was opened, showing the amazing sky and stars of Beirut’s nightlife.. Wooow! It really felt like flying! You have to try it yourself!
