Inside the Game of Thrones pub in Beirut
If Jon Snow is ever in Lebanon, he won't have to go far to find a cup of mead. Castle Black, Zahlé is a new themed pub, which has opened up offering punters a chance to dine and drink in Westeros.

Guests must make their way through a warren of dark cavern rooms – something straight out of The Red Wedding – each reminiscent of a scene from the popular TV show (except for the DJ booth in the corner).All the food and drinks are themed, with names such as 'Blood Dragon, Cersei's Poison and Mother of Dragons. And the décor is something straight out of the Red Wedding

For entertainment, the DJ will haphazardly belt out the GoT theme song. And they also have Westeros-approved board games on hand:
Winter is coming. But so are your drinks
