“Librairie Antoine, the leading bookstore in Lebanon, returns to Beirut Souks with a visionary concept: Antoine iD. This concept, inspired by cultural diversities, brings together books and other culture related products.
It is that point of view that inspired the 3-storey shop rising on the Ajami Square. The ground floor is where one can find newspapers and magazines, publications about Lebanon, maps and touristic guides, as well as the latest releases. It is also where the FABRIANO BOUTIQUE is located.
The first 300 square meter floor is fully dedicated to children: books of course, but also stationery, a JOUÉ CLUB educational toys’ section and electronics’ corner. The second floor of 385 square meters is where the general bookstore and the ticketing service are. There’s also a small stage for performances and cultural activities, the first YELLOW KORNER photo gallery in the Middle East, and the cozy coffee shop GRID CAFÉ.”*
