A bar that conjures up the romance of far away worlds and bygone eras is Byblos Bar and Restaurant, named after the ancient Phoenician port, and it makes a fine waterfront drinking spot at Portside Wharf.
Nestle into a velvet banquette and partake in the extensive array of post-Phoenician cocktails on offer (the Twisted Godfather being possibly its signature) or bypass the cocktails and go straight for the impressive whisky or wine menu.
Alternatively, go for the spirit tasting platter where especially selected scotches, tequilas, rums or bourbons are matched with a complementary bar snack or, for a rare glimpse of 19th century European ways an absinthe fountain for 2 or 4 is available.
Diners will be treated to some of the best Mediterranean-inspired dishes - from share plates to enjoy with a sunset drink on the promenade, to romantic dinners for two, and lavish banquets for larger groups.
Byblos Bar & Restaurant is a top, riverside location to celebrate special events and occasions.
Nice to know - Takeaway is also available. Weekends can get busy so make sure to book ahead.
