Last Saturday night I attended Amethyste Lounge annual pool party at the Intercontinental Phoenicia.
Though I’ve been to this usually laid-back venue with its roman pillars draped in ethereal voiles amidst a magnificent pool for dinner and drinks last year, the place transformed into what felt like the Carnaval in Rio that night.
People were decked out in their most floral designer summer gear and over-sized colorful straw hats as they sipped on champagne and cocktails. Live performances played in the background while people feasted on the BBQ stations as the hotel’s five star chefs prepared a mouth-watering selection international cuisine including shawarma, Chinese food, Sushi and mini-burgers.
It was the perfect inauguration to a very eventful series of Beirut-y summer nights ahead of us.
