With the month of June just starting, you definitely know what that means! Longer days, colder drinks, suntanned skin, and salty summer hair! Our nights become even more enjoyable, and heading up to rooftops is the way to go to enjoy at best our summer nights. That's, at least, what we do in the capital during summer, socializing on rooftop lounges with great views, delicious drinks, nice breeze, and delightful ambiance. So, we compiled for you some of Beirut's best rooftops places that offer exactly that.
#1 Iris (Beirut Waterfront)
Iris has always been a summer favorite, whatever its location. The high roof and chic ambiance allow you to cool down and enjoy the summer breeze. Its all-white design is certainly soothing and easy on the eyes while sipping a cold glass of sparkling rosé and enjoying the view and the night breeze.
#2 Clap (Downtown)
Clap is the sushi restaurant on everyone's lips these days. Its feisty and fusion filled food have been extending the waiting list. This place is as in demand yet worth one's patience. It is the perfect spot to enjoy an Asian themed dinner on a summer night while overlooking Beirut's city lights.
#3 Spine (Naccache Seaside Road)
The enthralling architectural design of this rooftop lounge and its outstanding view would be probably the top reason to keep you coming back. Perched on the 12th floor, near the seaside in Beirut, Spine engulfs you in a velvety atmosphere while chanting summer vibrancy. It is truly a hotspot in Lebanon to enjoy tasty food, listen to the latest hits, and soak up the summer breeze.
#4 Capitole (Downtown)
Capitole has been around for a long time now and is still well sought after, so we had to include it in our list. It has maintained its reputation as one of Beirut's well-known rooftop hotspots for its view, food, and atmosphere. No wonder locals and tourists keep showing up again.
#5 La Mezcaleria (Saifi)
True to its Mexican theme, spicy and feisty in food and interior design, La Mezcaleria is a hot summer rooftop with a great ambiance! Its Mexican fusion food leaves your taste buds dancing and your energy ongoing all night. You might not want to miss this one, at least once for its typical Mexican experience.
