INSPIRED BY the owner’s passion for books and personal frustration with the lack of a cosy, neighborhood spot, Papercup opened its doors in June 2009 as a dedicated specialized bookshop. Located on a charming street in the eclectic Mar Mikhael neighborhood of Beirut, you will find our shelves filled with beautiful books on art, architecture, design, photography, and fashion. Those are complemented by a curated selection of magazines, children reads, graphic novels and stationery finds, as well as our bespoke ordering service – if you can’t find it on our shelves, we will order it with complimentary shipping.

We also love our coffee and strive to serve a good one.

In other words, think of Papercup as a coffee-infused book therapy.*
