products

cool selection of books + international niche magazines, most of which are unavailable elsewhere in town.

clientele

beirut creatives.

service

chatty and knowing their stuff. talk to shop owner rania and get a quick personal update on what's hot in beirut.

interior

although small in size, papercup makes the most of its space. white walls and a colourful tiled floor are matched with subtle design, the most prominent feature being the striking wooden chandeliers that perkily dangle from the ceiling in linear sync with a multitude of shelves both left and right.

cool little bookstore, tucked away in the emerging mar mikhael neighbourhood. papercup has a well-edited selection of books and magazines on art, design, fashion and photography. there's a small café section in the back where to sip coffee and browse your latest purchase.
