InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Beirut

Hello to all Americans in Beirut! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Beirut? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Beirut which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Beirut is rich in culture and has a lot to offer for expats. The capital of Lebanon is a vibrant city known for its divine cuisine, rich history and culture, diverse nightlife, and much more! With the network of buses, minibuses, and road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the suburbs of Beirut, which are simply a bus or car journey away from Beirut’s center.

Although Beirut has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Beirut, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
