Located on the Hotel’s 26th floor by the rooftop pool, with wraparound views of Beirut’s downtown skyline, mountains and the Mediterranean Sea stretching under a canopy of stars, the modish urban tapas lounge offers the perfect perch from which to enjoy sundowners and balmy summer evenings to the tune of the season’s hottest club tunes.

I went to the Roof last week after having won a competition with RagMag for free drinks and tapas. Standing almost 120 meters above sea level, The Roof is the highest rooftop in Lebanon (if I am not mistaken) with a breathtaking view of Beirut. It directly overlooks the Zaytounay Bay and St.Georges Marina as well as Biel and its surrounding. It’s one of those places where you sit down, have a drink, enjoy the unique view and just relax for an hour or two.

Just like I said and to sum it up, the Roof is a great place to have drinks in the afternoon and gaze over the sea and city. I asked the manager if they hold parties there and he told it’s a lounge not a party place but there’s a DJ every day from Tuesday to Sunday from 7pm till 1am. I have no idea about the prices as I wasn’t handed a menu but I can imagine it will be relatively expensive, say 15$ a cocktail or more.
