Although it seems to have become harder to find a spot in Beirut with good old live music, there are still some places to enjoy a gig or two. Here are seven cool venues where you can kick back with the band. 



1. Radio Beirut
Since opening its doors in 2012, Radio Beirut has been a center for music, culture and the arts in the city. The bar-café promotes a social atmosphere, where people can get together for a beer and enjoy live music by local and international musicians.
