Beit El Hamra · A celebration of Beirut’s past

With its canary-yellow exterior and delightful porch, Beit El Hamra is hard to miss. This two-room property blends mid-twentieth-century kitsch decor with modern comforts to provide guests with an unforgettable experience in the heart of the city. Once you step inside this unusual home, you’ll quickly notice the interesting wall art, patterned wallpaper and vintage furniture, as well as the airiness that permeates its light-flooded rooms. Outside, the brightness continues; kapok trees adorn the garden, where one can easily forget the time of day while reading or sipping Arabic coffee.

The property is part of the Souk El Tayeb project, which aims to preserve local food heritage by supporting Lebanese producers; so whether you choose to sit in the spacious dining room or in the pretty garden, you’ll certainly enjoy the taste of authentic dishes that are packed with flavour and made with love.
