“AT HOME FEEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Very central, just off main Hamra street could be your second 'salon'. In this pub/restaurant/cafe/meeting spot you could feel at home. Staff are cool, friendly, attentive. Excellent choice of music. Food is fresh, basic, breakfast package available. Wifi available. Mixed crowd, mainly students. Variety of books on shelves, lampshades and couches give a 'living room' feel. Owner, Raed, encourages artists to exhibit their work, for free, every month. Smart, as this way, 'decor' continually changes and new people come in. No commission is taken on exhibited items sold. AND wine is offered on exhibit opening night for invitees.Thank you!

“Too quiet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

It was supposed to be one of the best pubs in Hamra, Makdessi Str. Well it seems it had its days.
It was half full for one, and the audience is too young for my taste. I had the Gin Mojito which was excellent.
I would not go back there though.
