When it comes to dealing with life’s trials and tribulations, having your girlfriends by your side is a huge support. And, at the end of the day, it’s also nice to have them around to blow off some steam together. Are you and your girls wanting to hang out but don’t know where to go? We have seven awesome recommendations for you! After all, in the wise words of Cindy Lauper, “girls just want to have fun.”
As you can tell from its name, JACKIE On the Roof is a rooftop bar dedicated to the stylish First Lady Jackie Onassis. The place is decorated with many pictures of her inside, and the outside offers an open and airy rooftop to enjoy your cocktails with the girls. Located in Saifi close to downtown Beirut, you can also soak in the views of the city and the sea.
This one is more for an early girls’ night, as they close at midnight, but it makes you realize all your Barbie fantasies from childhood, so we just had to put it on the list. Candyfornia, located in Achrafieh near the Digital District by Saifi Village, is unlike anything else. It’s an explosion of pink and unicorns that is 100% “Instagramable” and offers equally colorful sweets, sandwiches, and even peachy mimosas called the “Flamingo Sunrise.” It has girls’ night written all over it.
This seasonal beach club in Amchit, just after Jbeil heading north, is a tropical getaway for a girls’ night out. It’s full of vibrant color, flower-laden swings, hammocks, and tiki decor, all which offers the perfect beachy atmosphere to enjoy a sunset cocktail with the girls. When the sun goes down, they often have DJs pumping out the tunes, so you and the girls can get your groove on by the sea.
If you want a more lively night out at a club, taking your girls to O1NE Beirut, on the Waterfront near downtown, will prove to be a memorable night. The light show is exciting with 360-degree projection mapping, as well as the music, with the most popular commercial hits. You and your girls won’t even want to leave the dancefloor!
The Grand Factory is, indeed, located in a factory building in Doura, north of Beirut. In order to get up to the club, you have to take the industrial elevator, and once you step inside the club itself, you’ll be taken by the vivid lights and the garden-like decorations. They have different theme nights, depending on the music you like, from “House of Pop” to techno and electronic DJs. It’s a great place to show your girls a good time out.
There are many options when it comes to nightlife in Lebanon, but it takes a certain type of place to “paint the town red” with your girls. We hope that you and your lady crew will enjoy a night out at these fab places!
