A hip late night hangout on busy Hamra Street in Beirut, Bodo is a place to relax, sip affordable drinks, and make memories all the way until morning.

Fun, funky, and most importantly nearly always open, Bodo in Beirut has become a late-night legend on this cosmopolitan city’s scintillating nightlife scene. Located on a street strewn with drinking establishments, Bodo has become a welcoming and laid back oasis in the middle of the hectic scene that is Hamra Street. Strolling down Hamra Street, you simply can’t miss Bodo as its sign made of glamorous white light bulbs beckoning from the street, projecting its name in a chic, curvaceous script. Once inside, you are greeted with an eclectic design featuring colorful lamp shades dangling from the ceiling, vibrantly patterned bar stools and floor tiles, and stylish boxy bar shelves. You likely won’t spend much time inside Bodo though, as on most nights, the crowd has a tendency to spill out on to the street to enjoy the fresh air and mostly mild Lebanese weather. Once outside, you’ll pleasantly find that your trip to the bar left you with more change than you were expecting, as Bodo is home to some of the most reasonably priced drinks in all of Beirut. Offering premium spirits, beer by the pitcher, shots, and cocktails, all in addition to a tasty food menu, you may find that you simply don’t want to leave Bodo, and luckily for you, it stays open until the sun comes up, so you don’t have to.
