Mar Mikhael

Mar Mikhael, located in the heart of Beirut, is the capital’s trendiest neighbourhood. Now known for its artistic flair and lively nightlife, the area is named after the 19th-century Greek Orthodox Saint Michael Church.

Mar Mikhael truly comes alive after sunset when its array of bars, pubs, and clubs open their doors. It is a hotspot for Beirut’s nightlife scene, offering a variety of venues with different music styles and atmospheres.

Mar Mikhael is also close to the epicentre of the Beirut Port Explosion, which shattered the city in 2020. You’ll still see poignant memorials around the area, and you can learn more about the effects of the disaster by speaking to the staff at the Beirut Farmer’s Market
