We're sure that for better or worse you're familiar with ouzo, raki, absinthe and pastis, but what about Lebanon's national aniseed-based hooch, arak? If you're in the market to learn more about it then Anise (see what they did there?) is the place to go. It's also a great shout for some classic, stirred brown-and-down cocktails, such as the Vieux Carré and the Boulevardier. There's also a regular schedule of live music to add a little something extra to proceedings.
