Currency Conversion


“The Party Capital of the Middle East” is a bit of a misnomer. Yes, Beirut is liberal and there’s plenty of places to drink and have fun – but it’s not exactly Ibiza. Some parts of the city feel like Paris, while others fell like Warsaw. I hear in the summer though it’s mental.

The Girls

Haifa Wehbe

Lebanese girls can be pretty sexy. They have that dark, sultry look, but their skin is generally lighter than those in other Arab countries.

I heard alot of hype about girls in Beirut, but in all honestly, I was a little underwhelmed. The standard is generally pretty decent- they keep themselves in shape and have natural good looks – but finding a 8 or a 9 is not easy.

One thing I did like about Leb girls is they have small waists but great booties… yummy. Pear shaped bodies are very common.

Nearly all Lebanese girls have excellent English. The chicks you meet Beirut are very liberal – many drink and smoke. They have similar sexually attitudes to those in Eastern Europe, but they are slightly more conservative. They remind me of Cypriot girls. They make out pretty quick, but one night stands are not the norm. Everyone knows everyone in the Beirut party scene. That said, Beirut is probably the best place to get your Arab flag. Provided she’s  not a virgin, you have a good shot on a discreet day 2 meet-up.

For day game, the malls are excellent. For the highest quality chicks, try some street game around the classy shops near Nijimeh square or Foch street.

At night, you can also find a few sexy Palestinians, Syrians & Jordanians.

Nightlife Recommendations

Mid-week Beirut can be a little quiet, but you can still find a pulse. The main nightlife areas are Gemmayzeh Street, Monot Street and Hamra. The venues  in Gammayzeh are more resto bar type places – really tiny and pretentious. Monot street (the club street) is even more pretentious and a complete rip-off. Hamra (the university area) is by far the best place to be in my opinion. It’s cheaper, the only place busy every night, and there’s more single women around. As such these venues are all in Hamra.

The strip

The Strip

This is the perfect place for a debauched pub crawl – about half a dozen bars crammed in a little laneway (the area doesn’t have a name, just ask for Danny’s). My favourite places were Danny’s, B108 and especially Kennedy’s. Just go to whatever bar has the most atmosphere. Later, check around the corner for a place called  Speak Easy. It’s small, but it always seemed to have quite a few single ladies about. I had the pleasure of having sex in the bathroom here – both the gents and the ladies room.


Getting High

Courtesy of

Nomad’s input: We met alot of people who smoke and got high, but it’s still a little hard to get your hands on. Just ask any body in the bar’s in Hamra.

Where to buy marijuana in Beirut: You can’t buy marijuana on the streets that’s for sure, but do not hesitate to ask anyone(!) In a club to hook you up with a smoke. Everyone does it here but yet a taboo.

Beirut marijuana prices: 10g = 50,000 = usd 34$ (good quality hash) usually you’ll be able tell by its smell and color.

1 ounce (28grams)= 300,000 = usd 200$ (outdoor weed) or if you’re lucky enough you’ll find some good indoor whitewidow, although only a couple of people grow it in Lebanon.

My Beirut Experience

Beirut was part of the Siege of the Levant. We went during exams in Jan – the worst time of year to go.  There was screw all girls around. Saying that, I was here for a week and had a great time. I spent most of it with a beautiful Lebanon girlfriend who showed me and my friends a deadly time. I also kissed a few cheeky chicas in Kennedy’s and Speakeasy. I found it easy enough to attract. I’d love to go back in the summer.

    how is the chances of hookin up in lebanon(or the middle east for that matter) ranked higher than south korea where you gave them 2.5/5?…..lil biased for hairy brown skinned girls eh

    • Naughty Nomad November 10, 2012 at 4:43 pm #

      It’s the truth. On a short trip, it’s easier to hook up with a local in Leb than SK.

  7. cockmaster November 12, 2012 at 6:53 pm #

    if what you an mocha are talkin about is true just blew my mind
    figured the easiest place to get an arab flag would be brazil…according to wiki there are 10-15 million arabs in souhtern brazil…among other places in south america

    Most of your itineraries seem remarkably similar to those of the overland holiday companies. Could our self-styled bold adventurer be no more than a tourist on what amounts to a cut-price escorted coach trip?

    How about for an Asian dude who’re able to speak Arabic? Do u think I stand the same chance of hooking up?

  10. Wonderer August 3, 2014 at 6:57 am #

    Hehhee nice post.. but you must be an Irish guy with an Irish accent 😀
    Otherwise for locals I can’t find it that easy to hook up with several girls in just some days.. I guess they’ll need to have you by the balls (not literally) before you get a good lay, such hard to get girls (for locals) and pretty snobbish..

    For tourists, I think they’ll do it cause they think it’s cool and don’t have to worry about you in the future
