Extravagant hotelier Campbell Gray became famous for his five-star escape in Antigua. Now he has surprised everyone by opening his second VIP hotel in the heart of Beirut’s bustling downtown district. Le Gray Beirut, which is squarely in the vanguard of Beirut’s renaissance, has an infinity pool and a bar that offers 360-degree views over the city. The Indigo on the Roof restaurant is already making a name for itself as one of the best fine-dining eateries in Beirut. Le Gray also offers a fashionable cigar lounge and a number of unique design flourishes – check out the multi-coloured elephant by Nadim Karam in the foyer.
