There are a number of bars/pubs/discos to be enjoyed in Beirut. The city is slowly trying to get back to being the "Paris of the East". The Buddha Bar, is one of the best. There are several around the world. Check it out.

thanks guys.. For sure we will not be letting anyone know we are working in afghan. I just wanted to state that just in case anyone would say it was not a good idea. I understand the dress code rules. Im from miami so im sure we have that on lock down. I just know that in europe once they find out your american they turn you away from the door. Thanks for the youtube link.

No one can predict the future, but since you Americans Nnamed Beirut to No one travel destination, I´m having a hard time believing that they will chase you away It´s rather on the contrary, Lebanese and Europeans LOVE americans.

political & sectarian violence

by MrBill

VT discourages postings that are political in nature. However, how many forts, churches, and other historical sites that we visit as tourists have a religious and/or military reason for being? You cannot divorce religious and politics from history, and we live in this world, so we have to take an active interest in what goes on around us.

I am very upset about this bomb yesterday in Beirut. Lebanon has been very stable in the past 3-years after years of sectarian violence and civil war. Lebanon was at peace and was reaping the peace dividend. Rebuilding its infrastructure, its economy, and attracting tourists back to its cities and landmarks. I visited Beirut last summer and found it very enjoyable. I was planning to go skiing in the Cedars in Lebanon in the next few weeks.

People say there is two sides to every story? Is there? In the Israel-Palestine conflict we can see mistakes made by both sides. In the invasion of Iraq we can argue whether the means justified the end. Usually we see poverty as the breeding ground of terrorism. However, there were none of these convenient excuses for what happened in Beirut yesterday. A previously unknown Islamic terrorist organization simply chose to break the peace and to murder a well-known and well-repsected former Prime Minister. That's it. There is no otherside to the story. Unless, holding a Lebanese and a Saudi passport are reason enough, which is the excuse the terrorists gave when publicly revealing their dark motives? "A Lebanese man shouts for help for a wounded man near the site of a car bomb explosion in Beirut, February 14, 2005. Lebanese troops were on alert across the country on Feb. 15 as the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri in a car bomb blast raised fears of a political crisis and rekindled raw memories of civil war."

All of us! For our Country, for our Flag and Glory!

Our valor and our writings are the envy of the ages.

Our mountains and our valleys, they bring forth stalwart men.

And to Perfection all our efforts we devote.

All of us! For our Country, for our Flag and Glory!

Our Elders and our children, they await our Country's call,

And on the Day of Crisis they are as Lions of the Jungle.

The heart of our East is ever Lebanon,

May God preserve her until end of time?

All of us! For our Country, for our Flag and Glory!

The Gems of the East are her land and sea.

Throughout the world her good deeds flow from pole to pole.

And her name is her glory since time began.

Immortality's Symbol--the Cedar--is her Pride.

All of us! For our Country, for our Flag and Glory!

GOLF CLUB OF LEBANON

by sarrahh

The Golf Club of Lebanon is the successor by merger to the Beirut Sporting Club which was established in Beirut by Foreign residents from the US. The Club is a non-profit organization of Public nature.Membership in the Club so far is around 800 of different categories Family including Dependent Children, Men Single, Ladies Single, Overseas (For those originally full members). Yearly Club guests for nonresidents only; foreign visitors to Lebanon are accepted without sponsor paying entrance and sports fee. Currently there are many Tournaments in the Year for Competitions sponsored by various Organizations as well as the Club; this is beside our Monthly Golf Medal for Men and Ladies and the Golf Championship for the Club. An average of 75-100 participants are recorded.We have currently six Tennis courts all from soft clay. We are studying the possibility to convert one of them to an all weather. The most important function for improvement is the standard of service and expansion of facilities.The Golf course at its present location was originally inaugurated in October of 1965 as a 9 hole course grassed and treed from scratch on government property. In 1973 a further piece of property was acquired and enlarging the course to 18 holes. These were formally inaugurated in 1985.On the Course, we use permuda mixed with rye and zoizia japonica on the greens. The total area covered by the course is approximately 300,000 Square Meters. There are 3 artesian wells feeding the first 9 holes and 3 feeding the new 9. Irrigation is entirely underground by manual sprinklers. The water is slightly saline but well within limits.On the Golf Course we have 50 employees and a backup of daily employees approximately 25 during the summer period; other employees are of course available for the Tennis, Squash, Changing room as well as Administration and Stores totalling approximately 25.

Druze Centre

by mikey_e

This isn't really a tourist attraction, but it is a point of interest for those who would like to learn about Lebanon's various sects and ethnic groups. The Druze Centre is a large community centre in the west of the downtown area, in Snoubra. The Druze are a close-knit Muslim sect whose beliefs are different enough from the mainstream Sunni and Shia groupings that they are considered to be completely separate from the latter two. They speak Arabic, but have garnered an almost ethnic status, because their customs are so unique and their communities so close. The Druze live south of the capital in the mountainous regions around Beiteddine and Nabaa Safaa, but there are also large communities in the Golan Heights and Israel (where they are well-known for their participation in the institutions of the state, including the army). Here in Beirut, their centre is a large compound in a predominantly Sunni neighbourhood. It's not open to the public, and for this reason I don't have any pictures of the interior.
