The 80s Are Back in Beirut

We’re proud to feature this month our latest project in Lebanon: Walkman Bar & Restaurant. Concepts In Motion, the minds behind February 30 in Hamra and Checkpoint Charlie in Uruguay Street, approached Maroun Chedid sal for the menu concept creation of their latest project newly opened on Hamra Street. The result has been outstanding, as every single element and detail has been crafted to re-create the unforgettable 80s!

The Concept

Walkman, Polaroid, VHS cassette, acid wash jeans, MTV, Atari…  
Starting to feel like home?

How about Boney M, Abba, Samantha Fox, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Boy George, Scorpions & Bon Jovi? Yes, that’s more like it!

Welcome to Walkman Bar & Restaurant, welcome to the 80s: The Decade That Made Us. 

We are not only about nostalgia; we stand for a revolution that went on to dominate the world…

At Walkman you’ll go back in time to the rhythm of the biggest hits of the 1980s in a totally psychedelic atmosphere that will blow you away.

The Maroun Chedid Touch

Maroun Chedid was very excited to work on this project, as he loves the 80s! Speaking about this project, he said, “It was challenging to bring the 80’s cuisine and trends into today’s modern world that is overwhelmed with ideas, restaurants of all kinds, concepts and food trends…” The food, accessories, serving sets and servingware were specially created and designed by Maroun Chedid sal to capture the spirit of the 80s era. The menu was carefully crafted to deliver old favourites with a modern touch. Maroun said it best when he summed the Walkman experience as, “Everything is special about Walkman. Every visit allows you to notice something new. I will leave it to the guests to discover the magic of the 80s in 2014!”

Chef: Elie Daoud
