Memory lane

A huge space in the heart of Mar Mikhael that caters to pretty much anything you feel like doing!

Look straight. You could be facing the entrance of Memory Lane and not know it. The tiny black inscription on the door is easily missed and stands in stark contrast with the huge space that lies within. Spanning and connecting different streets, Memory lane is a new addition to the trendy Mar Mikhael district. Open in 2014, this place is a former garage and sewing factory that were converted into a multipurpose venue designed to look and feel like an extension of the outside in. Conceived to respect environmental values and preserve the historical feel of the traditional Mar Mikhael streets, it offers its customers more than 10 living and common spaces perfectly suitable for all types of gatherings with family, friends and coworkers. Three entrance areas located on every corner of the streets, a large atrium and trees (yes trees) at the center of the place; just enough to give you the sensation of walking into a picturesque outdoor marketplace or an extension of the beautiful streets of Beirut. The industrial look of the old garages and the sewing factory is preserved in keeping characteristic elements displayed, namely a sewing machine, some old maps of Beirut, personal books and trade business cards. Once you take all that in, decide on your seating area.

Trust us, this will take a few minutes for first-timers. Between the couches, oak benches, customized trolleys, metallic seats and other seating options, indecision is easily forgiven- though the friendly staff is always happy to help-. Once settled, dig into the interesting international menu. Sandwiches, salads, pizzas and other main platters are available round-the-clock for you to enjoy while reading your favorite book, while working in the little garden, while having breakfast, while having a drink or while having dinner. Try their kaak sandwiches and desserts and dont miss their wasabi salmon tartare or guacamole chicek burger, which are particularly good. In this combination of authentic spaces, you’ll find something for everyone.
