Al Falamanki

The serenity of a Lebanese village in the heart of Beirut? Al-Falamanki is proof that anything is possible!

When you are about to be driven mad by driving traffic in Beirut, have a break. Have a Falamanki stop. A wonderfully bucolic traditional Lebanese cafe located on a 25000 square feet piece of land in the heart of Beirut, Al- Falamanki is designed to take you back to the village you grew up in or wished you had!

From the moment you enter, you cannot but be intrigued at the spacious green space (have you read the latest Beirut statistics for green spaces? scandalous.), the intriguing objects scattered between tables and adorning the walls. Every object has a story. This is not your typical cafe; this place is a time-machine to the Lebanese 1940's , the owner's tribute to his former wrestler-turned bodyguard father (no joke. you can read all about it on the first page of their menu. With a timeline no less).

This is a place where visitors can enjoy a game of backgammon or cards while they sample some of the most authentic Lebanese cuisine in town with who else but Fairuz in the background? Whether it's a sunny Sunday brunch you're after or a post-clubbing Mediterranean feast, Al-Falamanki is sure to welcome you among his many shisha-smoking regulars! Go ahead and give it a whirl, be Lebanese for a day...you may not want to go back.
