Last week the opening of The Village in Dbayeh took place. If you are like me and pass by the construction site frequently, then you are also curious as to what exactly the end result would be.
The Village is a series of restaurants and pubs centered around a courtyard with a mosaic tiled water body. It may not be a typical Lebanese village, but it is more reminiscent of an Italian or Spanish heritage. That being said, the quaintness of the space, with its close knit restaurants without clear borders, along with mixed indoor and outdoor seating, makes it a welcome getaway within the fast growing suburban area of Dbayeh.
With the overload of malls and closed spaces, I for one am happy that an initiative such as The Village has been made!
