Yasser Arafat and Barometre

"Barometre, a small bar near the gate of the American University of Beirut, is known for its delicious mezze, and was also a favorite of Yasser Arafat."  1) I can't stand Yasser Arafat but throughout his years in Beirut, he never ever went to a bar or a restaurant or a cafe.  Never.  2)  Barometre opened after Arafat had left Beirut in 1982.
