Stereo Kitchen joins Beirut's culinary scene
Diverse cuisine meets minimal design
A sophisticated new addition to Beirut's bustling culinary scene, Stereo Kitchen – a bar and restaurant which serves international cuisine – is situated atop an office building, giving guests unparalleled views of the surroundings.
The venue was designed by architect Paul Kaloustian, and is essentially a circular glass pavilion, similar to a tower deck. The circumference is fringed by two spacious balconies with a view of the city on one side, and an incompatible view of the harbor and Mediterranean on the other.
Inside, the dining tables and double-faced bar are concentrically laid out, creating individual zones and dimensional opportunities. The contrasting hues of dark metal ceilings and light-toned wood furniture as well as exposed concrete create a minimalistic theme throughout.
The zigzag pattern of the ceiling, designed and built by PSLAB, is replicated in the exterior and interior spaces and creates a sense of continuity throughout the restaurant.
Stereo Kitchen located in Gemmayze-Beirut on Al Arz Street and is open daily from 8pm – 3am.
