* ''VideoGame/PhantomDoctrine'' is set in 1983. Its CIA campaign starts with the player's hideout in Beirut, there's occasional references to the war, and the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_United_States_embassy_bombing_in_Beirut suicide attack against the US embassy]] is a plot point, [[spoiler:causing the death of Leslie, the protagonist's mentor in the CIA.]]

* Features Film/JamesBond goes to Beirut in ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun''''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'' in order to steal the remains of a golden bullet that killed a 00 agent to a BellyDancer. ([[CaliforniaDoubling the crew never went to Beirut]], it was all shot in Pinewood Studios)


Beirut is mostly known because of the civil war. Suicide bombing as a military tactic started here, the most notable case being the attack on US and French Marines in 1983. This is really rather unfortunate, since the Beirutis themselves would prefer you ignored the occasional outbreaks of violence and focused on the important things--like Beirut's bustling business scene (because the city is in a good spot for trade, and also because the Lebanese Diaspora gives it business contacts ''everywhere''), culture (numerous artists and publishers--the old chestnut in the Arab literary world is that Egypt writes, Lebanon prints, and Iraq reads), and nightlife (something for everyone: even if you don't drink, the coffeeshops can accommodate you with any herbal beverage you care to name...and sometimes other "herbal" items as well, if that's your thing). Oh, and the outbreaks of warfare? [[BlackComedy Good for the construction business]].

Capital and largest city of [[UsefulNotes/{{Lebanon}} Lebanon]] and the most diverse city in the Middle East. During the Cedar Revolution of 2005, cynics noted the presence of Arab women in revealing outfits. People who knew Lebanon were amused at the cynics' cynicism; the Lebanese in general are famously tolerant (when they're not shooting at each other), and the Beirutis most of all.
