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.

Very nice place. Cool ambiance. The bartender is good he knows What he's doing! would recommend it for couples more(maybe because of the dimmed lights) One of the best food bar in Lebanon. Their potato wedges are great. Shockingly they have one of the best steaks I ever had. Highly recommended, specially if you want a calmer and "mature"place in... More

our expectations were higher when reading the reviews. The burger was indeed tasty, but this was practically the only menu item it really has going for itself. The 'house' wine offered is OK, but there are better ones to be considered for similar prices. I do not know if this establishment is more for the local students or that they... More

My Favorite place in Hamra and one of the best pubs in Lebanon. I've been a regular for quite sometime now. I even took my soul mate on our first night out there. - Excellent music and doesn't get loud like the other pubs in Hamra (pubs with mixed identities , the burst your eardrum thinking they are a NightClub)...

The best pub in Beirut: great service, very welcoming waiters and definitely the best cocktails you can ever try. I highly recommend Lynchburg lemonade. I am usually not a fan of Jack Daniels or any other kind of whiskey, but you must try this one. Also, the blueberry jam burger is mouthgasmic.
