Ferdinand Burger is highly recommended!!! The combination of the Australian Angus beef with the bacon and the jam is beyond amazing...That's what i call satisfaction! The ambiance is beautiful... the old chandelier, the dimmed light. The staff is very friendly!! It feels like home :)

Inspired by the story of Ferdinand the bull who liked to sit quietly under a cork tree, and smell the flowers rather than fight with the other bulls, Ferdinand, the bar, is conveniently located in Mahatma Ghandi street right in the heart of Hamra. Decorated in a warm and friendly atmosphere, the large leather couch may fool you into thinking that you are in Friends' Central Perk. Crowded with intellectuals, foreigners, artists and students, this place is the dream place for people who are looking for a new scene. Ferdinand the Bull is yet another symbol for peace, simplicity and happiness. Our Place allows admission for 21+yrs ONLY!! we serve craft cocktails and soul food !
