We serve the food we love and we serve it damn well too. That’s just the way we were raised to do things around here. Villa Badaro is more than a restaurant, it’s a home. A home for those kindred souls, the ones that appreciate things done the right way. The ones who know that the best condiment is good company. That “another round” is a sacred pact, and never a question.
We believe that where you choose to eat is almost as important as what you choose. That the green around you is indicative of the greens resting on your plate. So we built our dream in an old villa in the heart of the city. We built our garden before we even thought about the kitchen. And when the time came to finally start cooking we went and built our bar, because no great chef ever took out his knives and said “no, hold the drink until after I’m finished”.
If you like how this sounds, you’ll love what it tastes like. So pull up a chair, grab a glass and make it a double. It doesn’t make the food taste better, but it makes everyone a hell of lot more interesting.
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.
بِوَقْت صَارِت النَّاس بدَّا كتِير من دون مُقابل،
مِتعَطّشِة لكِلّ شي بِدون ما يكون عِندا وقت لتْقَدِّر أيَّ شي
وفَقَدت المَعنى الحَقيقي للأصالة والنِّوعية،
قَرَّرنا نِمْشي عَكْس الوَضع السّائِد ونِخْلَق من جديد
جَوّ العَصْر الذَهبي اللِّبنَاني مِن دون أيَّ فَذلَكِة أو تَصَنُّع:
آبتَاون بَيروت بِجَسِّد رؤيا كان صَرلا زمَان عَمْ تِتْبلوَر.
عِنّا بتِرجَعو بالزَّمن للعَصر الذَهبي لبَيروت
وبتِخْتِبرو البَيت اللِّبناني بالضيافة، اللِّقمة الطَّيبة والجَوّ المُمَيّز.
آبتَاون بَيروت مِش مَطعَم، هوّي بيت لا كبِير ولا زغِير
وبِساع الكِلّ بِجَوّ من المَحبِّة والبَساطة.
أكْلات الماما، بَيت الجَبَل، السّاحة، قَهوِة الشّارع، سُفرة الأحَد،
الدّفى، البَسمِة، الذِكريات الحِلوة، الخِبرَة والأصَالِة…
كِلُّن عِنَّا ويا مِيةْ ألْف أهْلا وسَهْلا!

The 60s in Lebanon were like a perfect woman; rough around the edges, but so gorgeous you could only think it was too good to be true. There’s a reason they called Beirut “Paris of the Middle East” and it’s due to its amazing people, fine food, and extraordinary music. But that all went down the drain when war struck our majestic country and the things we lost are too many to mention. We lost our train station; a truly golden aspect to our paradise. You might think that these days are long gone, but your cries have been heard.
The train is back and with it brings back the glory of the golden days. Join beautiful sunsets and even more breathtaking nights with fresh cocktails, live grilled food, and great music. Relive a time that could only be described as art, a time where the train station was still gliding on its rails reminding everyone of a glorious time.
