Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal is heading to Beirut to scope out the real estate as he plans to expand his lounge bar, Lap, overseas:
“I was waiting for the right time to expand Lap. As it is doing quite well in Delhi, I’m in a position to expand my business. Mumbai is next on the list and it is going as per plans but I’m really looking forward to going global. I will be going to Beirut to look up places where I can launch Lap. Most probably this will be the first overseas branch of the resto-bar. [...] When I first thought of going global, I could not think of not opening in New York and London. I mean, it’s the place where you find all cuisines and a different Indian resto-bar would certainly be a hit I hope. I am actually targeting places where people love food and Beirut naturally came to my mind. It’s a great city that loves to party and enjoy different cuisines.”
Here are some photos I found of the bar in Delhi:
Not really my cup of curry but may could work in Beirut (or could join the hundreds of obscure bars and lounges across the city).
