I can't stop washing the special and limited bottles that... More

Ferdinand is absolutely the best pub/restaurant in Beirut. Incredible atmosphere, with amazing music that doesn't drown out conversation yet calms the soul. Super friendly staff, especially Lamis, a true Tinkerbell that flutters around spreading stardust of smiles and laughter. And of course the drinks! Magical and unique cocktails concocted by Ferdinand's wizards behind the bar, incredible single malts, remarkable beers,... More

Description
Inspired by the story of Ferdinand the bull who liked to sit quietly under a cork tree, and smell the flowers rather than fight with the other bulls, Ferdinand, the bar, is conveniently located in Mahatma Ghandi street right in the heart of Hamra. Decorated in a warm and friendly atmosphere, the large leather couch may fool you into thinking that you are in Friends' Central Perk. Crowded with intellectuals, foreigners, artists and students, this place is the dream place for people who are looking for a new scene. If you want to read a book, surf the web, have a bite, a drink or a shot while enjoying good music, Ferdinand is the place to be. Ferdinand the Bull is yet another symbol for peace, simplicity and happiness.
