Vyvyan's Beirut – Home away from home

bars
Bars

"Vyvyan's" in Mar Mikhael in Beirut has the best cocktails ever. It's one of my all-time favorite bars. Take it from me: order a Bloody Mary...

If you ever look for me and don't find me, head to Vyvyan's and I'll definitely be there! It's my all time favorite bar in the heart of Mar Mikhael. Everything there makes you feel like home: from Santana (one of my favorite bartenders) to the decoration of the place that is rustic and old. They don't have a happy hour, but trust me when I say they have the best cocktails ever. And on top of that, a great selection of beers from locals to Belgian and others. If you have a big appetite, you gotta try their food, the menu is written on a chalkboard. You will find on the bar a huge water jug with small drops coming down in glasses. Well that's actually absinthe! And take it from me and order a bloody Mary; you will never find a better one anywhere else. The best part? They serve it with pickles and a separate glass of beer.
