About this listing
If you want to be very close (5 min walk) to the bustling bars of trendy Mar Mikhael, yet staying in a very calm, charming, authentic street with cute shops, and get a true taste of the Beirut lifestyle, then you have found the perfect place!
This bright bedroom is part of a lofty house, with a modern open kitchen and a very cozy living space. The 1950's house has a nice high ceiling and is newly renovated. There's only one other bedroom that is mine. And since i work during the day (architect) and during the night (bar-owner), the house is totally yours most of the time :)
The sunny laid-back roof terrace, the private car parking, the kitchen, living room, its big movies collection (dvds), tv, books, and internet of course!
Interaction with guests
I love to guide people around and give them an insider's tip on where to go and what to see, far from the touristic advices given by the books. The cool bar that I own is less than 5 min away, and I would be more than happy if you share with me a drink or more ;)
I might sound subjective to say that this is the nicest neighborhood in whole lebanon, but it is true :)
I love everything about it. Its houses, its shops, its people, its vibe. For me, its the Brooklyn or East London of Beirut.
Right around a corner there's a delicious 'mankoushe' breakfast place, a mini-market, fruit store, and a pharmacy.
-Lots of cabs & buses pass by on the parallel street (Badawi Str. & Pierre Gemayel Ave.)
-10min walk to the cafe's and bars of Mar Mikhael (Armenia Str.)

I am an architect and a big lover of Beirut.
I own a very cool fitness place called Athletes Anonymous that is only 8 minutes walk away from my apartments. It includes a climbing wall, a functional training playground, a weights and cardio area, diverse classes such as boxing, yoga, trx, circuit, pilates, etc, and a healthy organic juice bar.
All my guests are more than welcome to try it out :)
