Boy do the Lebanese know how to party; the atmosphere is amazing and the friendly nature of the people are next to none. This is by far the best rooftop bar (and dining) I have experienced. New York, Hong Kong - forget it, Beirut, Lebanon is the place to be when it comes to nightlife. Book a table in advance... More

I enjoy going to Iris for early drinks/sunset drinks because it has a nice atmosphere and music. I love their cocktails specially the Bellini. The salads and mini burgers are very tasty but my favorite part is the nuts they offer at the beginning. One of the best roof tops in Beirut.
