Phoenicia Hotel is one of the most famous hotels in Lebanon. Located in Beirut, it opened in 1961 and hosted royalties, world leaders, and celebrities. The hotel is a landmark in Lebanon. It was always the first destination of world-renowned celebrities in Lebanon like Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, Marlon Brando, Jacques Brel, and many more famous artists. Did you know? Fairuz, Um Kulthum, and Assi attended the same party there! Phoenicia Hotel has witnessed the Lebanese civil war, but that didn’t spot it from turning up the volume and continuing the party. After closing its doors for many years, it rose again like a phoenix. It’s indeed a historic landmark in Lebanon!
