We went to Ferdinand for drinks and a bite and it proved to be a pretty interesting place. Good music, great waiting staff and good food. It was a lovely evening in a great location.

Great bar/restaurant. Staff are very attentive and remember your needs on your return. Really polished place and you don't pay a premium either

Good drinks. Happy hour is better prices. However, they took wine off of happy hour special, which is a disappointment since it is so cozy to sit there.

Very crowded. The atmosphere is nice but you get squeezed but your surroundings. You can pass by for a drink.

I always went to this Bar during my visits to Beirut. This time I was not there for ca. one year. All I can say is that many things obviously changed. Very unfriendly service. No friendly word plus telling me in very rude way that it is now a no smoking place. I found much nicer places with friendly service... More

Ferdinand is simply my best pub in Beirut. The 70s, 80s and 90s music is super, and the age group is mid-late 20s and up.
