Lebanese night life is comparable to any cosmopolitan city
in the world. The ambiance and the service are all of the highest international
standards. The night life is continuously evolving with new places opening and
others closing like many the biggest cities of the world. New restaurants of all
kinds, pubs, night clubs, piano bars and other casual diversifications are opening
everyday, especially in Beirut...
Whatever your fancy is, oriental or western, traditional or
eccentric, you can experience it all after dark. The night life starts late along
the coasted suburbs of Beirut, Kaslik, Maameltein and
Jounieh, in addition to Verdun and Broumana area. Restaurants
do not fill up before 9 PM while the night clubs' dancing program begins after
In fact, the nighlife scene in Lebanon starts pretty late and
ends up pretty early. The old Monot Street in Ashrafieh is now illuminated all
through the night with the flashing neon signs of the inviting clubs and pubs.
For after-dinner drinks, the glamorous crowd aims for Gouraud Street in
Gemayzeh, a long and thin street of at least 30 tiny, smoky bars, each seats no more than 20 people.
Moreover, gamblers will find one casino, the "Casino du Liban",
which is located near Jounieh, in the north of Beirut. The casino has 365 slots,
fifty-seven table games and six restaurants. There is also a showroom, a big
theatre and a night club.
