Summer afternoons are best spent basking in the warm sunshine, and what better place to do that in Beirut than the seaside or beautifully-decorated rooftop venues?
One of my all-time favorites is the rooftop of one of Beirut’s most architecturally charming buildings, The Albergo Hotel.
The Albergo Roof is simple, delightful and comfortable, allowing the breeze to cool hot afternoons while you’re able to enjoy your glass of wine, fresh juice or delicious lunch as you listen to the soft tunes playing in the background. Homey couches, pots and plants, and umbrellas that protect you from the sun’s rays make the setting so relaxing; you dive right into European vacation mode despite being in the heart of Beirut’s noise and traffic that magically disappears from the moment you enter.
The international menu is simple and sufficient. Make sure not miss out on the mouthwatering array of pastas, from the saffron to the seafood. The fresh ingredients and simplicity of each platter will make you fall in love with the place even more. The staff is exceptionally friendly, professional and helpful, and the portions are surprisingly generous. Although a bit pricey, the overall experience is well worth it.
Whether it’s a business lunch, a friendly gathering or an intimate date, the setting of the Albergo Roof as well as that of the hotel itself, will make you instantly fall in love with all things Albergo — and you’ll already be looking forward to your next visit to this panoramic terrace as soon as you leave.
