Came here a couple of times during my stay in Beirut because of peer pressure. The decor is definitely unique to Beirut and the atmosphere is relaxed and I think that this is exactly what led the staff to slack off. I had the burger and shared some appetizers and they were all average. I would suggest dropping by and having a drink but have your meal elsewhere.

popular bar in Hamra area, good cocktails and nice decoration (very special!) but can be very noisy and very crowded... I'd recommend to go during the week and not weekends... located in a nice street with plenty of nice bars

Going to a same place three night in a row when you are on vacation means that February30 is some special spot of Beirut.
Yes it was located just around the corner from our hotel, but Beirut actually has lots of options for night out to see something different every evening. February30 is unique and fun. We kept coming back there to enjoy the great food (wild mushroom risotto and crab salad were yummy), very creative cocktails (you can't even tell what's in it, but it tasted amazing), very cool crowd. Dj is doing a great job by mixing everything that creates the party atmosphere and excellent mood. The place is busy every night of the week, ppl r eating, drinking and even dancing. The decorating of February30 is another story. You can't stop looking around and find fun in every small detail of the interior. Designers made an excellent job and really played around with the concept. Can't wait to see more places like that around the globe.

We simply loved your review! Thank you so much for visiting us three nights in a row and for taking the time to write this amazing review. We look forward to your next visit to Lebanon where we will be more than happy to serve you more crab salad and risotto. We will make sure the drinks are equally up to the standards of topsy-turvy, just like the décor!

Very IN place. Great music and very busy, which may excuse the sometimes slow service. Food was OK for this sort of place, which is more of a drinking rather than eating place. Great place for groups to have a lot of fun.
