The Armenian quarter of بيروت, Lebanon is well-known for its good bars and restaurants. It is located in the former Christian East of the city and you can easily reach the road called Armenia from Martyr’s square and the city centre. Close to the St. Nicholas Stairs (linking Armenia with the Sursock art museum and often used for art exhibitions) you will find Aaliyah’s books – one of the cosiest places of the Lebanese capital.
It is the combination of a bookstore focussed on English-language books and a coffee bar. You could easily stay there for hours. They offer good coffee as well as some cocktails – but also some food for in-between. 😉 Grab a book and relax!
