in Beirut

Puff away on your double-apple shisha and watch Hamra pass you by from the comfy sofas at this homely spot. Ka3kaya is a throwback to Hamra cafes of yore, when intellectuals would smoke, drink coffee and argue about leftist politics until the wee hours. It's a refreshing change from the fist-bumping vibes of the rest of the Beirut nightlife scene.
