Description: Inspired by the story of Ferdinand the bull who liked to sit quietly under a cork tree, and smell the flowers rather than fight with the other bulls, Ferdinand, the bar, is conveniently located in Mahatma Ghandi street right in the heart of Hamra. Decorated in a warm and friendly atmosphere, the large leather couch may fool you into thinking that you are in Friends' Central Perk. Crowded with intellectuals, foreigners, artists and students, this place is the dream place for people who are looking for a new scene. Ferdinand the Bull is yet another symbol for peace, simplicity and happiness. Our Place allows admission for 21+yrs ONLY!! we serve craft cocktails and soul food !

Absolutely delicious! We ordered the nachos which were plentiful and really tasty. We also ordered the Ferdinand burger which was scrumptious. It had blueberry jam which cut perfectly with the cheese and the patty, although not medium rare, as requested, was so juicy and tender. All their burgers looked amazing! We went back a second time and ordered the pulled pork sandwich and chicken quesadilla, which were both delicious. The pulled pork was sweet and juicy and literally superb! The staff are very friendly and recommended a beautiful cocktail and the prices were also really good. We sat outside as it was very smoky inside and we don't like sitting in smoke, especially when we're eating. Definitely recommend this place!

My girlfriends took me to Ferdinand and promised a fantastic time. I was not disappointed. We went specifically for drinks and they were great. The boys behind the bar are master mixologists and they give a great show as well. The staff are very friendly and fun and the food is also fantastic! The overall atmosphere and experience is phenomenal and this place has become a go-to for me when I Hamra.

The title says it all.

A cosy place well located in the heart of Beirut (as a tourist's point of view).
Their cocktails are really amazing. The bartenders are well trained and know their stuff.

Staff was really polite.

Thumbs up
