Located along D'Aguilar Street, on your right hand side as you walk up the hill in LKF, you can’t miss Beirut. The blaring music mixed with aromatic shisha smoke and Middle Eastern – arches is a dead giveaway.
You probably won’t feel like you’re actually in Beirut, Lebanon, but they try! With two floors of warm burnt orange décor, topped off with peaked Middle Eastern arches and columns, mosaics, and lamps, it definitely isn’t your typical LKF bar.
This bar is a perfect mix of East and West, with blaring Western beats (club volume) and a full bar, in a chic Lebanese themed venue. They have an extensive list of flavoured shisha (water pipe) varieties, from classics like Apple and Mint, to Asian twists such as Jasmine. Shishas are HK $250.
The bar downstairs draws mostly a younger crowd of primarily expats, with a few locals thrown in. They do not have a dance floor, and the space inside, downstairs is actually quite small. Most people sit at the bar, but the blaring music makes conversation difficult, no matter where you are in this venue.
Upstairs is a Lebanese restaurant, turned lounge by night. This is a great place to relax, and slow the frantic pace of the day or evening for a moment.
Cocktails are moderately priced (for LKF!), and the variety is quite good, even for some more rare liquors.
