Now, in a much different capital with a much different nightlife scene, it is looking to reclaim the title it lost as an effect of its proximity to the Green Line with a slew of new cafe-bars open throughout the day as well as in the evening.While Don Baker is only open until 10 p.m., Mechleb said he hoped that would change with the 10 or so new cafes and bars set to open over the next two months in the area.Roy Fares, who opened his appropriately named cafe Roy's off Badaro's main road over a year ago and can thus claim the title of the first new spot to open in the area, is concerned about something different, however.I expected other bars would come, but I didn't expect it would happen this fast," Fares told The Daily Star. With so many other spots due to open, he fears Badaro will go the way of other trendy areas in Beirut such as Monnot and Gemmayzeh, with many new bars opening to accommodate a fleeting clientele only to close a few years later once the neighborhood's popularity reaches its expiration date.
