Dar Al Achrafieh
In the heart of one of Beirut’s oldest neighborhoods sits Dar Al Achrafieh, an exquisite home built in 1929. With its Art Deco furnishings and painted high ceilings, this rare gem remains a living piece of the city’s memory, preserved by one of its most steadfast admirers, Jamil.
Dar Al Achrafieh · In detail
Dar Al Achrafieh is Jamil’s family home, located a stone’s throw away from the lively Gemmayze street, a short walk from Sursock Museum, Saint Nicolas Cathedral and Saint Joseph University (USJ). The home comprises two rooms, and is exquisitely decorated with unique furniture and artefacts that reflect Jamil’s artistic spirit.
