So much funkiness going on in Beirut, Lebanon- Behind the Green Door, MYU, The Basement...and we just love Gemmayze.
Gemmayze is Beirut's artistic bohemian quarter, an old district full of narrow streets and beautiful historic buildings from the French era. It is well known for its trendy bars and pubs, cafes, restaurants and lounges; a perfect chill out place to have a drink "with soul" and watch the night go by. Only until very recently was it a quiet district in a booming city. Tons of cool cafes, bars and lounges are packed into this tiny and charming neighborhood that really takes a life of its own at dark.
Im a huge fan of the stencil art seen throughout the city walls, and beautiful architecture that is being modernized. So much to see and do in this city , so many up and coming musicians, contemporary artists, designers, boutiques, and restaurants.
