Beirut Now Has A Café-Resto Called Despacito!

Just when the world agreed that we have had enough of Despacito, a café/restaurant called Despacito opened in Sodeco. We’re not sure whether the service is slow or whether the atmosphere is as spicy as the music video, so you might want to give it a try! It’s set to open August 3rd, 2017!

Despacito didn’t only inspire people to name a restaurant after it. In fact, there are many people who mashed up the song and made parodies of it.

One example is Fouad Yammine who parodied the song. In this Lebanese version of Despacito, Yammine is complaining about a couple who always avoid paying the bill.

Noel Kharman, who is a Palestinian singer, also released a mashup with Audinius. The song brings together Despacito along with the Arabic song by Ahmad Al-Maslawi. The Youtube video has gained over 1.3 million views in just under a week.


Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
