There’s nothing like a hearty dinner and a glass of red wine after a long, tiring day on the slopes. Be it a cool summer’s day or a blisteringly cold winter’s night, every meal in Faqra requires an element of cosiness and warmth. For that, there’s Urban.
This new restaurant bar defines the Faqra experience; rugged yet refined, casual and homey yet purposefully elegant, Urban is a welcome contradiction. Ironically enough, it offers a quiet retreat from hectic city life with good food, a wonderful view, and small town hospitality.
Urban is the latest brainchild in the ever-growing Addmind family, the mother company behind White, Iris, and MAD. Built on rocky terrain and far away from the chaos of the city, it is the place to casually wind down after skiing, indulges in a warm meal, and enjoy a restful night’s sleep. Suitable for both family getaways and weekends with friends, Urban is far more than just another lodge added to Faqra’s repertoire.
It is first and foremost a restaurant bar and just so happens to have 8 cosy guest rooms should you get too lazy to make the winding drive back home.
Art Galleries scattered throughout the city’s rustic streets and mechanics refurbishing vintage cars elevated on old rusty lifts; Mar Mikhael has always been considered Beirut’s industrial and artistic hub. In 2012, The Happy Prince opened its doors in the neighbourhood being one of the first restaurants to drive Mar Mikhael to the food and beverage scene it had reached today.
The place was created to be the founder’s favourite restaurant: A new experience where food collides spectacularly with spirits, wines and cocktails, in a casual and vibrant setting with no pretence. From the buzz of the bar to the hum of the dining tables, “The Happy Prince” is forever kinetic. By reflecting its true identity and integrity, the place will always remain one of Mar Mikhael’s most beloved restaurants.

Named after the marvellously chic and cosmopolitan city in Uruguay, Punta del Leste in Old Jounieh does not disappoint in any way. The cocktails are masterful, as is the delicious menu of Peruvian cuisine and Ceviches.
Set around a swimming pool on the sea, Punte del Leste pulls in a hip and attractive, a festive crowd of young mostly from the area revellers elevated even higher by a groovy DJ mixing a selection of downtempo and jazzy tunes.
Propaganda Gin Room welcomes all gin lovers, café dwellers, Beirut locals, and travelling foreigners looking for a new hotspot to enjoy the city beat. Propaganda plays the part of both restaurant café by day and gin bar by night.
The gin room is the first of its kind in Lebanon and one of only three in the Middle East. It also doubles as Caramel Boutique Hotel’s in-house restaurant. Guests and diners can enjoy a decadent breakfast buffet spread, a hearty lunch with colleagues or friends, and a dinner that of course turns into a get-together over drinks.
With food catered to the Lebanese and international palette, a cocktail menu created by globally-renowned and award-winning bartenders, and an atmosphere befitting of Beirut’s busy and lively hustle and bustle, Propaganda Gin Room is all set to be a city staple.
A busy corporate district in the daytime, a city of ghosts at night, the long forgotten Badaro missed its vibrant past for a long time. On December 18th, 2013, a new neighbourhood café-bar named Kissproof opened its doors; a love story was born. The place was created to serve as an all-day gathering spot for neighbours, locals and visitors alike. The days passed and the vision remained intact.
Space is split and can be enjoyed through two distinct experiences: The vibrant bar and the warm terrace. Kissproof’s charming ambience, created by a fun team that strives to improve your experience with good humour and casual hospitality along with the sound of music, cocktail shakers and friends chattering, gives everyone a homecoming feel. The place doesn’t take reservations as the priority will always remain for our beloved locals.
