BEIRUT’S BEACH BAR
Technically, Bar National is outside Beirut’s city limits – it’s located in Zouk Mosbeh, right on the sand near Holiday Beach.
This most eccentric and amazing of nightlife spots has a casual bar set up right on the beach, steps from the sea, and they serve a variety of specialty fresh fruit cocktails, in addition to more traditional drinks. Guest DJs spin the latest tunes for all-night beach dancing, and you can also get away for a few moments to gaze at the endless Mediterranean and listen to the waves crashing on the shore. Bar National is open by appointment only, so you have to book your spots in advance. They can also organize dinners and special events, with a refreshingly boho setup, at their Zouk Mosbeh location or almost anywhere else you please. It’s the place to sway, kiss and dream this summer.
