I've been to Ferdinand over 10 times in a 3 weeks vacation! The cocktails are beyond this earth, and to top it all, I had the Ferdinand Burger... Freakin Orgasmic! I totally recommend the place to food & cocktail fanatics. Not to miss if you're in Beirut, and if you're not, it's totally worth the trip!

Dropped in here by accident as the room transpired a very cosy atmosphere. You will find a good choice of very well crafted cocktails and snacks. Very friendly crew, too. Will definitely return here.

Best burgers in town, no questions asked. Drinks prices are a bit on the high side and the place can get a little overcrowded but again it is worth it. My only disappointment was when I ordered the long island drink that everyone knows I was told that they dont serve it, when I asked why I was told "it... More

I am NOT exaggerating when I say their burgers are the best I've tasted: I've tasted burgers from literally every continent on earth, and never expected to find the restaurant that beat them all in my own hometown. The rest of their food is just as good (pulled pork sandwiches, salads) Their drinks: no doubt the best in Beirut -... More

A nice place to hang-out with your friends. A few step away from Hamra Street (near Crepaway), my colleague brought me here. I like the interiors and the music is so relaxing.

What a nice place this is! You can find several bars in Hamra but by far none is like Ferdinand. Good food, exquisite cocktails, captivating and relaxing location and a wonderfull crew ready to help you. Ferdinand has it all!

Ferdinand is by far the best place to go to in Hamra. The food is great, they've got a signature burger that's to die for. Staff are very friendly, owner/manager (I'm not sure) was brilliant. I highly recommend a drink called Copper Fumes, definitely one of a kind.

I have always heard great things about this pub at the corner of Hamra street! So after some looking about, I've found it to be Ferdinand's! Ferdinand's is an amazing place to have a quick bite and some relaxing drinks with your work colleagues or friends. Would recommend the Ferdinand and Strawberry goat cheese burgers, they're the house specialty!
