The nice thing that differentiates this place from others is the free fresh fruits they offer. It doesn't cost much and it's a good attraction to summer lover. I love the music there, so new and trendy. The service is a tiny bit slow and the staff could surely work on that. I'm sure it's because the place is always buzzing with demands here and there. The food is really good and everything I tried so far has been good especially those mini burgers. I love watching the sunset from there and enjoy the nice wind and breeze over looking Beirut port. I would always brag about this place to foreigners and would recommend it to those that come for a visit. Great lounge place with friends, colleagues or family. Very cool place.Highly recommended.

Iris definitely has an excellent vibe in all respects. Music is great and trendy people all around. I did not eat there but it is a must see if you are in Beirut. I am very fond of roof top bars especially when it looks over the Med!!!

We went to Iris with a group of friends on Friday 30th of may 2014.
The place is on the 8th floor of a downtown Beirut building.
Once you get there the greeting of the staff is very poor ...venue is over packed...especially the middle section... The service was weak...the drinks were bad...I mean we did try different kinds, but even their local white wine served was as sour as vinegar...the food was ok, we had mini burgers and fried shrimps on sticks.
And for a lounge bar "drinks" are a major asset not the case at Iris at all!
We were not impressed at all...definitely overrated and not recommended!

Iris is a trendy place ...if you like to watch people and be seen then this is the place for you! but if you like to dance and have fun then look elsewhere... the music is too loud to have conversation with friends and too mellow to dance... so it is neither nor...but hey it is popular with the trendy scene of beirut!
