Restaurants, American Downtown

A sophisticated, trendy crowd frequent Iris for its appetising nibbles, delectable cocktails and smooth lounge music. Set on top of the iconic An Nahar building, Iris embodies everything modern Beirut has to offer in its warm summer season.

With arresting views of the sea and city, the rooftop restaurant and lounge provide an urban retreat from the chaos below. Relax in the elegant yet comfortable terrace furniture; sample their steak salad - tossed to perfection - and stay after sunset for cocktails. Here, you’re guaranteed a fine dining experience that lives up to Beirut’s legendary summer reputation. The after dark atmosphere has made this one of the region’s hottest nightspots but the food itself is well worth sampling. Look out for seafood options such as rock shrimps, a lobster sandwich and a grilled sea bass with asparagus salad.
