Beirut Rafic Hariri (BEY) - MEA Cedar lounge

Name of the lounge : Beirut – MEA Cedar Lounge

A very nice lounge, with a decent offering. Plenty of daylight with nice views on the apron and hills south of Beirut. The only downside of this lounge is the not-so-pleasant staff (not smiling at all, a bit rude, seem bored) and the noise level when the lounge is filling up.

Location : upstairs just after immigration. This lounge is before the second security check point.
Opening Hours : unknown
Entry requirements : usual Skyteam requirements

Food offer. Good selection of cold items (salads, sandwiches, cheese, cold cuts, oriental pastries, fruits) and a few (limited) warm options like pasta
Drinks offer : soft drinks, fruit juices, water, cofee, tea and a nice selection of liquors, wine and…Champagne (this is so rare in a non-AF lounge outside France that it worths to be mentioned. And it’s a decent brand that is served : Piper Heidsieck). There are several attended bars for alcoholic drinks.
