I enjoy going to Iris for early drinks/sunset drinks because it has a nice atmosphere and music. I love their cocktails specially the Bellini. The salads and mini burgers are very tasty but my favorite part is the nuts they offer at the beginning. One of the best roof tops in Beirut.

I usually go there and was never deceived. It is a great place to spend the night or even sip a drink while watching the sunset. The staff are knowledgeable and very friendly. The cocktail drinks are really good. A place not-to-miss in Beirut!
