It's an amazing place full of restaurants and shopping places (brands), however it is expensive! The great thing about it is the movie theater were u can enjoy a movie in a very classy and clean place.

Extremely entertaining venue to place your evening with a variety of restaurants specializing in different cuisines as well as book stores, clothing shops, designer stores and a impressively big VOX cinemas center, there is always something to do there. Great place for families, friends, business meetings, romantic outings and even a day to spend by yourself.

Nothing souq like about it. A sort of outside/inside shopping mall with little atmosphere. (If you are expecting something like the Souq al Bahar in Dubai, it's nothing at all like that. ) Skip it. You won't miss much.

When we visited Beirut, almost everything was closed, so these Souks were the only place where we met a lot of people. The shops were pretty expensive (democratic brands had almost the same prices as in Moscow, and there were also a lot of luxurious cosmetics and food shops), so I didn't really find it interesting.

The only souk where you can have a walk, enjoy your time and shop while you're at work!! located in the heart of Beirut, this souk is a nice place to have a walk in the evening.

If you are looking for a traditional souk, this is not it. Beirut souks hosts all the top brands and looks more like Champs Elysee than a souk :) Great place for an evening stroll, pubbing and a nice meal!

Beirut souks is one of the best shopping places in Beirut, you can find all brands from the most expensive till the least (H&M, Zara, etc...) Nice coffee shops to stop by with your friends and nice area for kids to play. The newly opened cinema complex adds huge value as well.

If you are looking for a calm and peaceful place to do shopping, Beirut Souks should be your selection. Actually, when I usually visit Beirut Souks it's either to do some shopping or to visit Virgin Megastores and check the newest albums and events. But you can always find perfect restaurants to have lunch in like Pizza.Co, The Met and... More

What has been done there is great work, but where are the traditional shops???, have a look at what have been done in Bublos and jounieh, the renovated what they have to maintain history, this could have been done even to a small part of the old souk.
