I like going to nice places. Simply because they are nice. Not to show off but to please myself. Whatever makes me happy. Shallow or not. Simple or extravagant. Anyway, I have been to Cavalli Club in Dubai before and I loved it! So when I heard about Cavalli Cafe in Beirut, I simply must check it out too.
The place opens from 8am til 1am but I decided to go in the afternoon as I wanted a more relaxed experience. And indeed it was. Since we had lunch already at home, we ordered the Cavalli coffee special for the husband and for myself, green tea, and a dessert to share.
Afterwards we moved to a table outside to enjoy Beirut’s summer and to people watch…afterall the cafe is located in proximity to Beirut business and nightlife district. People who want to be seen and to see politician/celebrity make use of Beirut’s latest go-to location.
It was a perfect afternoon and we ended it with a bottle of Chateau Kefraya. xo
Beirut. That’s where I am at the moment. Well Souk el Gharb to be specific. Less than 20 minutes from Beirut, this suburb in the mountain overlooking the city, is world’s away from the hustle and bustle. Here, flowers of all sorts grow, grapes in the backyard, and pine trees. Visitin’ the in-laws, husband’s cousins, friends and anyone he knows, his dad knows…you get the picture. Busy socializing thus the lack of post. And no I don’t speak Arabic nor French so by socializing I mean smiling, 3 kisses on the cheek (typical lebanese greeting) few words in Arabic and French enough to say “hi, I comein peace.”
Sitting outside the house and chillin’,
Making the most of the beautiful sunny day,
And making the most of a beautiful night.
And of course, no trip to Lebanon is complete without a visit to the salon…I mean coiffure.
