Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
As the tide of gentrification pushes inexorably eastward, the vanguard of trendy lounges and hipster cafés has finally reached the formerly shabby industrial district of Mar Mikhael. The bars in Mar Mikhael, most of which line the busy thoroughfare of Armenia Street, now rank among the city’s most fashionable: this is where the city’s creative types and hip young things come to quaff cocktails to the strains of Nicolas Jaar on the sound system. From the deliberately old-school Americana decor of Internazionale to the classic rock vibes at Woodstock, retro cool pervades the air in Mar Mikhael – so don your most ostentatious shutter shades and come breathe it in.
