Walkman

Go back in time for a night and sway to the rhythm of the biggest hits of the 1980s in a psychedelic atmosphere that will have you pleading do that to me one more time!

Do you pine over Polaroid shots? Do you long for the simplicity of a VHS cassette? Do you yearn for the acid wash jeans comeback? If the answer to any of the above is yes, then Walkman is for you. Nestled in the Hamra Courtyard, Walkman is a bar and restaurant guaranteed to have you dancing with nostalgia after the first drink. Think Boney M, Abba, Samantha Fox, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Boy George, Scorpions and of course, Bon Jovi. They will have you humming these tunes every night except on Wednesdays when you’ll find yourself brushing up on your French for their exquisite and hugely popular French nights. The Lebanese have a certain affinity to the 1980’s as evidenced by the many 80’s nights in various bars and clubs around town. Walkman takes this infatuation and turns it into a full-on love story. The 80’s feel permeates the place from the design to the menu and the music. Imagine a large John Travolta cut-out from Saturday night fever, oversize disco balls, vinyl-record chairs, videocassette drink cases and Velcro wallet bill cases and you’ll see they mean business. Friendly staff, responsive management and a varied menu characterize this quintessentially funky place in the heart of Hamra. Open since October 2014, Walkman shows no signs of slowing down. Only one thing do be said: Please do go!
