This place is the definition of a hidden gem. I used to pass by this place and never realized its existence up until a year and a half ago, then it became one of my usual hangout spots. “Onomatopoeia” or as we call it “Ono” is a hidden underground music hub/coffee shop in the neighborhood of Sioufi-Ashrafieh with weekly cultural activities and events around art and music of various genres, a place always surrounded by symphony and melody.

I mean the name of the place reflects its story, “Onomatopoeia” origins in the Greek language, meaning the formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named, basically the words that represent a sound. The name was chosen as proof that music/sound is an international word/language.

This calm and cozy café feels like home to everyone that visits, the space exists for all musicians and creatives to hang and socialize as a community. the coffee shop part of the hub provides funding for the activities that take place in the space which is part of why their lessons and activities are always of affordable pricing.

This NGO has always aimed to provide a space for different generations of musicians to bridge different styles and genres of music. Anyone passionate towards music in any sort of way, either by playing an instrument, singing, wanting to learn or just by having a good ear for music, you’ll most definitely find comfort and interest in this place!
