The staff are hands down the coolest, most down-to-earth group I've ever met. I visited in October 2013 and came back a number of months later and all the staff remembered me, even having only visited twice and kept to myself and my friends. They make incredible cocktails and take extreme pride in their reputation. This place is perfect for... More

Whenever I am in Beirut I try to get down to Dragonfly to experience the best cocktails I have ever have. I'm usually a beer person, but at Dragonfly its all about the cocktails. The bar itself is great and well decorated. Can get a bit busy and tight to move around when busy, but so what - you're there... More

I read about this bar as the 'best cocktail bar in the world' and although I wouldn't go that far, it certainly is the best cocktail bar I have been to in a while. The décor is Thirties mellow fused with Middle Eastern cave and a touch of New York cool. I especially enjoyed the vintage telly, running continuous Bennie... More

The best bar in Gemmayzeh: huge selection of great cocktails. Small selection of finger food to keep you going. The barmen are always very friendly It's great place to sit and have a few drinks with friends.

Our favourite bar in Gemmayzeh: great cocktails with choice, nice finger food, nice music and very friendly personnel! A good place to start the evening... unless you decide to spend all your evening there!

Beautiful small bar in Gemmayzeh street. Very big coctail menu and the guys working there can make something new. Often good music. It can be crowded on Friday-Saturday. It is a good spot to start a Friday night out.

Nicest little cocktailbar in Gouraud street. Always busy also during the week. Nice staff! Non and alcoholic drinks available. Try the Moscow Mew, my favorite. It happens here!

Nino the resident mixologist (barman) in a white lab coat gives off the impression that the beverages you order will be nothing but scientifically concocted to meet the desires of your palate... And it does not disappoint!

We were walking down gouraud streets tiny pavements littered with cars and motorbikes and stumbled into a tiny little bar with great music, cocktails and food. Friendly bar staff, as attentive as waiters can be in Beirut greeted us. We had some awesome bar food, brilliant martinis and the dj kept up a lively atmosphere. Friday night was great but... More
