Enjoying a 180-degree view of the port and the Mediterranean, delicate food, and great music with friends represents Beirut at its best. In honor of our city, Iris is open year-round with the iconic rooftop during the summer and the new Winter Garden during the winter.

For drinking and dining al fresco on a midsummer’s eve, very few places rival the roof of the iconic An-Nahar building. Iris cocktail bar and restaurant uniquely blends the relaxed with the refined; whether you’re a cuff-linked fine diner or a bikini-clad après soleil cocktail drinker, Iris doesn’t judge, just delights.

Light, bright, fresh, and consistent, Iris’ Winter Garden is everything you don’t expect out of the temperamental season.

This restaurant lounge curiously blends fine dining with relaxed comfort.

This is where early birds can retreat after work for a casual, well-deserved drink and where sophisticated palates can indulge in a succulent meal at dinner.
