Who We Are

Papercup is a bookshop dedicated to all things print, both local and international – magazines, journals, stationery, and books for all ages covering art, architecture, design, photography, fashion, and travel. It is also a coffee shop and so a workspace, a neighbourhood spot to gather, hang out and tell tales. It has been conceived in 2001, it was established in 2008 and it opened in 2009 in Beirut’s Mar Mikhael neighbourhood. We love what we do and we do it with passion. Be it the coffee, our carefully chosen selections to our book readings, events and online magazine The Sounder. If you want to find out more about us, check our Press page, or better yet, pass by for a coffee and a browse.
