Up on the 31st
May 11, 2018
Beirut’s nightlife is rich and varied. But if you’re looking for an oasis of calm and elegance, an escape from the urban bustle, then we suggest you turn your eyes skywards. The bar at the Hilton Beirut Habtoor Grand is a plush, traditional kind of place all white leather bar stools and dark wood, sophisticated in atmosphere, with a knock-out view out over the city’s rooftops to the mountains beyond.
Based up on the 31st floor (though, hell, you probably could have guessed that) it’s a smart, contemporary jazz bar, with a great range of international drinks available. Here you can sample fine wines and tempting cocktails as well as a menu of light snacks. There’s a long counter at which you can perh, an international crowd, live entertainment on some nights and while it’s very much a hotel bar and gleams in a very familiar hotel bar way,
It’s a pleasing place to sip a drink of an evening, particularly if you’re in the city on business.
