THIS WEEKEND IN: BEIRUT
As Beirut breezes into spring, the city has celebrated with a host of new eateries that focus on fresh ingredients and fabulous food. Juice Up is the city’s newest juice bar that caters to purists – think apple and carrot juice – and to more adventurous palates. And Bar Tartine, Mar Mikhael’s beloved bakery and café, is firing up the oven in ABC Ashrafieh. Take home freshly baked breads and pastries, or pull up a chair and tuck into the indulgent Camembert burger.
In what seems like a gift from the heavens, the latest Victoria’s Secret store is the first in Lebanon to offer the full assortment of the brand’s beauty and lingerie collections while Agent Provocateur’s spring bridal collection promises to make wedding nights even more memorable.
