Beirut exudes an air of organised chaos: high-octane, full of contradictions, a head-on collision of the senses. Sights change, bars pop up and restaurants reinvent themselves on a weekly basis, but one certainty is that you’ll never be wanting for things to do in Beirut.
No matter where you are in Lebanon’s capital, you’ll feel like you’ve been dropped smack-bang in the centre of the action – whether that be in the glamorous environs of Saudi-funded Downtown, the bustling streets of Hamra or the oh-so-hip bars of Mar Mikhael. Whatever it is that you’re looking for, rest safe in the knowledge that the city’s got your back: it’s a place that caters to all appetites, serving up everything from remnants of prehistoric settlements to all-night parties. History, hedonism, and a whole lot of hummus: Beirut’s got a treat in store for you.
