In the days of flashy pubs and pounding music, the dimly lit wooden facade of Captain's Cabin stands out as a relic of a bygone era. Now over 50 years old, the ramshackle bar is one of Beirut's historic landmarks. Tucked away along Sadat Street, a few meters off the main Hamra Street, Captain's Cabin has weathered the storm of decades of war.As a kid, Toriz, now the owner, used to spend his afternoons after school at his father's bar.The security situation obliged all businesses in the Hamra district to close by 6 p.m., allowing pubs to work no more than four or five hours a day."Once a couple came back to tell me that this is where they met," Toriz said.Thanks to his persistence, Captain's Cabin is now past the 50-year landmark.
