Newport Nautical Bar
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Avast! Cast off the anchor and raise the mainsail. Well, sort of. As the name suggests Newport is a nautical bar, but it wears its theme lightly: it's more yachts and white deck shoes than gold bullion and wooden legs. As in Hamra's Captain's Cabin, there's a lack of actual ship-related paraphernalia on the wall, but you’ll find plenty of marine-oriented cocktails on the menu, including but not limited to the Captain's Orders (a Pimms-based concoction – rare for Beirut) and Full Speed Ahead (a heady mix of rum, ginger, lime and thyme). Puntastic. A modest selection of alcohol-inspired light meals – pizzas, sandwiches and, err, edamame – is on offer to stave off malnutrition and scurvy.
