One of the best bars in Hamra. Not trying to be super-original or attempting to reinvent the wheel, Ferdinand sticks to the basics that a bar should have: warm atmosphere , good music , good food ! And it works perfectly

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 !
