Inspired by the story of Ferdinand the bull who liked to sit quietly under a cork tree, and smell the flowers rather than fight with the other bulls, Ferdinand, the bar, is conveniently located in Mahatma Ghandi street right in the heart of Hamra.

Decorated in a warm and friendly atmosphere, the large leather couch may fool you into thinking that you are in Friends' Central Perk. Crowded with intellectuals, foreigners, artists and students, this place is the dream place for people who are looking for a new scene.

If you want to read a book, surf the web, have a bite, a drink or a shot while enjoying good music, Ferdinand is the place to be.

Ferdinand the Bull is yet another symbol for peace, simplicity and happiness.
