Electric Bing Sutt
Next to St. Nicolas stairs and Le Chef Gouraud Street, Gemmayze, Beirut
Combining two vastly diverse Asian cultures, Electric Bing Sutt is an unconventional and hip Asian/Middle Eastern all-day bar in Beirut. Inviting from the roadside, this venue opens into a funky, dazzlingly neon interior with an open window façade on to the street and furnished with retro foldable chairs and Chinese porcelain stools. This is full immersion into global bar scene subculture, with signature cocktails and Asian-based, locally fused food items served by fun-loving, easygoing bartenders. Electric Bing Sutt – The Best Bar in Africa and the Middle East, sponsored by Torres Brandy is the brainchild of globally awarded bartending mixologist Jad Ballout (formerly of Central Station) and Chinese spouse Lynn Lin, who prepares the authentic, mouthwatering food found nowhere else in Beirut. Complementing that offering, the cocktails are concocted using advanced culinary techniques, aromatic distillations and complex infusions. Specialities include drinks with an Asian twist, such as a popcorn and pandan-twisted Manhattan, a Thai Tom Yum Gong soup cocktail, a sake Aperol Spritz and even a Vermouth Tonic with numbing sichuan pepper.
