The NEST offers a unique blend of nature, culinary delights and ambience. What was the inspiration behind it?
Far from the everyday, The NEST restaurant and lounge bar envelops you in a realm of lush greenery, tropical melodies and exquisite flavors, all under the embrace of the sky, moon and stars. When the sun dips below the horizon, The NEST comes alive, setting the right mood for an evening of incredible memories thanks to the pretty garden, signature cocktails and culinary delights. Every aspect has been thoughtfully designed to elevate the guest experience.
We worked on the finer details with my brother and inspirational partner, Edgard Broumana, who has extensive experience in consultancy, concept creation and guest behavior.
What can guests look forward to at The NEST?
A beautiful escape and unforgettable moments await guests at The NEST. From the moment they are escorted out of the main cage, which represents our daily routine, the experience unfolds, starting with the menu selection, music, magical design, special aromas and an unforgettable culinary journey.
Why are there three distinct areas at The NEST?
The NEST is designed in a way to cater to all guests’ preferences with three distinct zones: the dining space, the lounge and the elevated bar area. They are respectively named “by the Stars,” “by the Sky” and “by the Moon.”
What can you tell us about the menu?
We tailored our menu items to meet the expectations of sophisticated food lovers. Every plate was created to provide an experience that complements our concept and take guests on a culinary journey around the world.
In your opinion, what differentiates The NEST from other rooftops?
It’s all about the experience and The NEST’s backstory. In my opinion, having a vivacious design and offering an exceptional culinary experience with an eclectic mood and a breathtaking view, overlooking Jounieh Bay and the mountains, makes this venue unique and one of its kind in the region.
What has the feedback been since you opened the venue?
The feedback has exceeded our expectations. Loyalty from our guests and the buzz generated around the concept have made us proud of our accomplishment. Indeed, there are surprises coming next year that will further elevate the overall experience at The NEST.
