CLAP Beirut’s concept is based on the traditional Japanese architecture by eliminating the boundaries between the “Niwa” [outdoors] and “Engawa” [indoors].

Natural materials, stone, and woods were used to respect the natural atmosphere of the “Niwa”. Japanese craft techniques were used such as carved wood screen “Sukashibori”, a bracket light made from cut glass “Edo-kiriko” and a wall made from a patchwork of second-hand traditional Kimono clothes. Curated by Japanese designer, Noriyoshi Muramatsu founder of Studio Glitt.

With its exciting atmosphere and exquisite cuisine, CLAP Restaurant has become a renowned destination for food enthusiasts and design aficionados alike.
