11m - The concept of healthy fast food is something most people would find...
A 24/7 mini market filled to your hearts content.
Whether you’re jonesing for a cigarette, have a sudden urge for unhealthy munchies, or are just looking for some water and cat food, then Twenty Four Seven is your all day, all night destination.
The Qoraitem and original branch of Twenty Four Seven mini-market was the first of its kind to successfully open and last in Beirut. The small, one-story corner-store is jammed packed (and I mean overflowing to the brim) with any imaginable unhealthy essential. Wander from isle to isle filled with varieties of local and imported junk food that is oh so good but oh so bad for you – your every childhood fantasy come to life. From sodas, to chips, to cereals and cookies, ideal sugar-packed munchies are guaranteed to keep you awake and tweaking for days on end, like the iconic wide-eyed owl logo so characteristic of the mini-mart (another store whose names shall remain unmentioned has gone as far as to copy and adopt the nighthowl as their own). It is worth mentioning that Twenty Four Seven also has some healthier options if you're able to resist temptation (labneh, cheese and other prepackaged sandwiches and salads).
Have a quick chat at counter with a friendly clerk, if you don’t get lost in the unending choice of gum or rolling papers. While your “hanging” out, you can also buy a woven bracelet and try to resist going back to the candy-land isles for any additional treats.
*There is a branch in central Hamra that sells alcohol.
