The Barometre is one of those places that's very popular with the younger residents of the Lebanese capital. Located in the city centre, the restaurant is in a side street, off Hamra Street. It fills up after 10pm, when the volume of the music goes up and people start dancing in the middle of the room to the pulsating rhythm of Middle Eastern music. If you arrive a bit earlier, you can also eat and chat quietly with your friends. Try the fried rolls with cheese or a fresh salad. The bottled beer is Almaza and it is not all bad ... give it a try!
