Le Capitole is a stylish rooftop bar in Beirut.

This utterly gorgeous rooftop lounge bar and restaurant boasts some of the most striking views in the city. Le Capitole is a stylish urban space, all wood and glass and gleam, serving fresh and inventive cocktails and tasty food. The drinks list includes a fruity Blueberry Old Fashioned blending Bourbon, Fresh Blueberry, Cinnamon, and Bitters, a smooth Chocolate Sazerac (yum), pairing Bourbon, Chocolate, and Bitter, and a refreshing Violet Spritzer which teams Prosecco with Crème de Violette and tops with sparkling water (a brilliant summer drink).  There are classics and shooters to choose from too. The menu is a fusion of tasty things: think Lemon Veal Piccata, Grilled Sage Chicken, or Seared Tuna Tartar with Sicilian Caponata. Dishes are prettily presented. There’s music and DJs giving the ambience a kick and the view is to die for. It’s a proper stunner, this place, and draws the crowds that you’d expect.
