If a venue can be defined by its clientele, the sight of Louis Vuitton and Kevin Spacey speaks volumes. Yep, Skybar is flippin' classy. Perched on the rooftop of BIEL (Beirut International Exhibition & Leisure Centre), it's also, as the name infers, a bar in — you guessed it — the sky. A very long one too — 50-metres long to be precise — overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and rustic views of the Lebanese mountains.
Holding 2,500, it ain't small either, hence its conversion to correspondingly massive names — not forgetting acrobats, flamethrowers, even breakdancers — to fill its lofty environs each night. And by big, we mean astronomical. Like, actual stars. Busta Rhymes, Tinie Tempa, Flo Rida, 50 Cent, Taio Cruz have all got high in Skybar, if only in the sense of its height from the ground.
