BEIRUT NIGHT FLIGHT
Strong drinks with a twist are what’s on at Badaro’s newest staple, Vol de Nuit.
If you’re a fan of sour cocktails, start with specialty drink Espelmador, a mix of gin, Prosecco, lychee and passion fruit syrup. It comes in a startlingly large glass, so expect to end the night feeling sufficiently lightheaded and very satisfied. If you’re a sweet tooth, try the aptly named Caribbean, a blend of Sailor Jerry rum and watermelon syrup, strong enough to transport you to Barbados, if only for an hour or two. Food choices are as diverse as they are many: start with the honey feta cheese appetizer and follow that with the Thai burger (grilled Australian beef patty, cheddar and emmental cheeses and a side of fries). This place definitely stands out.
