DAWAW­INE: A POLY­VA­LENT SPACE

Lebanon Traveler - - INDOORS - 01 567705, Gem­mayzeh, Tue-sun 11am-11pm

The brain­child of pub­lisher and au­thor Sara Sehnaoui, Dawaw­ine is Beirut’s lat­est cul­tural cen­ter that in­cludes a li­brary and a book­store. The venue, de­signed by ar­chi­tect Ji­had Ki­amé, con­sists of an open space with var­i­ous sec­tions: a bistro (open ev­ery day from 10.30am to 11pm with a Euro­pean menu), a book­store de­voted to theater, cinema, mu­sic and per­form­ing arts, a li­brary, a 32-seat screen­ing room, and a con­fer­ence room. The airy space is punc­tu­ated by low-slung so­fas, and in­cludes a ter­race.
