There is quite a selection of rooftops, but Iris still favourite one! Amazing view, good music and great cocktails. Open in summertime only though. Best for Sunset.

The prices were a bit shocking even after seing France, Italy or Croatia. I paid 15€ for a glass of basic whiskey, Jameson. Yet, the view and the setup are amazing, excelent for an endulging night or romantic date with a bang

Went to Iris while in Beirut for a friend's birthday. To start with the waiter had a real attitude problem. He was far too concerned about how much money we were going to spend seeing as to start with we were only 6 girls. He...More
