28m - Not a library, not just a bistro, not a theatre, not a cultural space. So,...
From the same people who brought you Myu, this rooftop restaurant/lounge on Pasteur street will not leave you wanting.
Located on the rooftop of a bank in the trendy Gemmayzeh district, Stereokitchen is a recent addition to the lounge/club scene in Beirut. In the past 2 years, it has managed to attract Beirut’s most glamorous. Put on your best suit/dress and charm your way in past the bouncer if you were foolish enough not to have a reservation.
As the elevator door opens, you will notice the place’s design is unlike any other. With a transparent open plan layout, and a circular pavilion-like shape, Stereokitchen offers 360 panoramic views of Beirut. The outdoor terrace, open in the summer, is worth a tour for its breathtaking scenery and to get away from the inside crowd, which can get stuffy given the sheer number of party-goers and the surrounding low ceiling.
As versatile a venue as they come, Stereokitchen is a fine dining restaurant during the week, a lounge bar in early nights and more of a club on weekends and late nights.
The cocktails and food menu deserve a shout out in their own right. Though portions can be somewhat on the small side, the variety and taste are impeccable. From Ceviches to foie gras burgers, their selection does not disappoint.
