5 Awesome Outdoor Bars To Visit Before Summer Is Over

These places are all equipped with outdoor cooling, or are just so cool that you’ll forget how hot you are.
Here’s where you can get a drink in an outdoor space that’s not a rooftop.

1. Garden State, Sin el Fil

Garden State is the perfect green oasis in the heart of Beirut’s hectic chaos. As the name suggests, it is a garden crafted with care to make your after work drinks or your long summer nights breezy while you pound your heads to fresh tunes. Garden State is a garden and so much more, they also have incredible food! We recommend the mini-burgers and one of their many whisky cocktails.

2. Punta del Este, Jounieh

A Peruvian-Argentinean restaurant, pool, and outdoor bar all wrapped into one. Offering the dazzling view of Jounieh bay, their outdoor terrace and patio bar are perfect for a cool night (or day) outdoors. The margaritas are great, and don’t miss out on their exceptional food, especially the incredible fresh fish ceviche.

3. Villa Badaro, Badaro

A restaurant/pub with indoor seating, but the real delight is its outdoor terrace. A fully renovated old villa hosts one of the most beautiful and old-style gardens in Beirut. Great food, great music, and great drinks!

4. Junkyard, Mar Mikhael

This gastropub has been a crowd favorite since it opened. From a giant old trunk coming out of a wall, to graffiti, colorful jars, and paint cans, the “junk” at Junkyard is exceptional. The outdoor seating area is a welcome change from the cramped pubs of the area.

5. Trainstation, Mar Mikhael

An outdoor venue located in the now abandoned train station of Mar Mikhael, TrainStation is a spacious and varied place. While it turns into a pretty intense party on weekends, it can also be a calm spot during the week! Sunset drinks, live stations of grilled food, and great music!
