Beirut: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

Beirut is a Mediterranean destination driven by adrenaline, optimism and the energy of a populace who embrace high jinks – and it fulfils its status as capital with an urban panache that’s unmistakably Lebanese.

The Monocle Travel Guide to Beirut delves into this metropolis to explore the vivacious thrum of life and unpick its many and varied quirks. We’ll lead you through a collage of cloud-scraping hotels, Ottoman-style palaces and golden age modernist apartments, and introduce you to small-scale fashion labels and smart shop-owners rethinking traditional handicrafts. We’ll also direct you to our favoured tables, where you can feast on mezze and sip on a soothing glass of arak. And when you need a reprieve from the excitement of it all, hang your hat at one of the city’s best examples of Lebanese hospitality, whether it be a five-star chain or a four-room family-run guesthouse.

The heady pull of this seaside capital is magnetic. So dive into the pace of life (and the Med while you’re at it) and discover all that this Middle Eastern beacon has to offer.

Monocle reports from around the globe in print, on radio, and online. As its editors and correspondents dart from city to city, they get to know the best places to rest their heads, stretch their limbs, and kick back with a contact in a hard-to-find cocktail bar. That information is now available in Monocle’s Travel Guide Series: a line-up of titles that speaks to you in an informed but informal way about everything from architecture to art, late-night bars to early-morning markets.

These are books that go beyond the traditional tourist beats to make sure you get the best out of a city—no matter how short your stay. Designed to be compact and collectable, they are also discerning; Monocle’s team won’t list a hundred places to eat but they will tell you where’s best for everything from some tasty fast food to something truly celebratory. Cities are fun. Let’s explore.
