Dar – Wine Bar & Book Shop
Hidden in the streets of Beirut,
SEB spotted the city’s treasure!
Dar Book and Wine Shop, is a small very cozy place to enjoy a tasty glass of wine and cheese platter in an incredibly romantic setting!
The wine bar hosts about 15 tables only, 12 of them outside in the garden! Inside there is a bar, an area for people to hang out and read their books, and the book shop obviously!
Old wooden furniture, candles, slight music hidden between lots of greens, the atmosphere is just breath taking!
The service staff consists out of 3 employees, two waiters and one lady working in the book shop!
We asked the waiter for scratch paper to take some notes for the blog, and the waiter brought a whole book and pens etc – very nice touch!
He noticed that we were tourists and instead of only asking whether we liked the Pinot Noir or not, he asked about our trip in Lebanon and even recommended places to go to and bars to explore!
Have a look at the pictures we took!
The Bad: that besides the attentive service of the waiter and the nice food presentation, the time between taking a seat and actually being able to order took too long! Besides the red wine was too cold – it reached the perfect temperature after standing outside for a couple of minutes!
The Good: all employees seemed like they enjoy their job and above, love communicating with their guests – a nice touch which made SEB feel a bit more home away from home!
