About The Venue

The Phoenicia Hotel Beirut is a 5-star luxury hotel in Lebanon with an impressive history. It opened in 1961, was expanded in 1968, burned down in 1975 and restored in 2000. Since its initial opening in 1961 the hotel has been a popular event hosting site. For instance, the World Whisky Day has been hosted at this venue.

The hotel was built by Najib Salha, the founder of La Société des Grands Hotels du Liban (SGHL). The Phoenicia opened in 1961. In 1968, following the immediate success of the venue, a second addition in the form of a 22-story building was opened after 5 years of construction. The hotel was one of the battlegrounds in the Lebanese Civil War of 1975–6 which resulted in its destruction. The Phoenicia reopened in 2000 after an extensive restoration project. The hotel includes within its complex 12 meeting rooms with a total space of 12884 square feet. The venue has received the Best Business Hotel in Beirut Award.
