Lebanon has always been the cocktail and nightlife capital of the region, and last week, the country received worldwide recognition for one of its top bars, Central Station, which landed the 26th spot on the list of the World’s 50 Best Bars 2016, representing the Middle East and Africa as the best bar in the region!

Drinks International magazine's prestigious list of the top bars was announced on October 6th in London, recognizing drink excellence around the world. The awards were given by numerous experts including renowned mixologists and cocktail historians. The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog of New York City earned the top spot, followed by the American Bar in London in close second.

Central Station, which is located in Mar Mikhael, has some of the finest and most creative drinks that attract both the party crowd as well as more serious drinkers. With this achievement, they’ve succeeded in placing Lebanon on the international cocktail map.

So the word is out, for the best drinks in Africa and the Middle East, you'll have to come to Beirut!

Cheers to Central Station and to Lebanon!

Who cares? I am sick and tired of such articles that try to represent trivial things in Lebanon as great supernatural achievements. It tells books of how much we lack true achievements when they are all under the category of hummus... tabboulé and bars... did we reach the tallest mountain of garbage or not yet? Try writing about that please...
