We Found The Ultimate Hangout Spot In Mar Mikhael

Looking for a go-to spot where you can have a good time? Head to Tota.

This gem of a bar is tucked away on a quiet street next to the old train rail neighborhood, away from Mar Mikhael’s bustling main street.

Tota stands out with its signature red neon sign, inviting everyone inside – so make sure you comply. As soon as you walk in, make your way to the large yellow sofa and get comfortable. When the weather is in your favor, nab a spot on their charming terrace and bask in the sunlight.

No matter where you’re seated, you’ll always find a hip crowd mingling over the bar’s signature drinks, scrumptious bites, and upbeat musical program.

As the night goes, a chill evening at Tota could easily turn into dance-off session- you’ve been warned! Oh and don’t forget to DOWN the bar’s signature cocktails like no one’s counting…

Aside from being a cool bar, Tota is an awesome space that hosts different activities all-year round. This Mar Mikhael gem has quickly garnered a fanbase for its unique weekend markets boasting local brands and vintage finds.

But that’s not all, because Tota also regularly hosts guest chefs serving up the most mouth-watering plant-based platters that vegans in Beirut especially especially look forward to. And if you feel like freshening up, Tota’s mixed berry smoothie is just what you need!

This versatile gem also sets the stage for talks, cine-clubs, monthly art exhibition, workshops and live performances from local and international artists. Stay updated with Tota’s various events here

And for the early birds, there’s nothing like greeting the first hours of your day with Tota’s wholesome breakfast options. Our favorite is their “I’m Hungover” combo, which consists of eggs, sausages, bacon, hash browns, sweet beans, mushrooms, and pancakes with free coffee and orange juice. Just writing this, we’re looking forward to our next hangover already.

Aside from the delectable menu, Tota is loved for its friendly ambiance and welcoming spirit.

You’ll always spot freelancers and artists ticking off their to-do list at this awesome spot. The Mar Mikhael bar is also home to activists’ discussions and meetings, AND it’s pet-friendly! So bring your furry friends along.
