A lot of mixed feelings here. I like the arcihtecture and the attempt to stay loyal to the building traditions. Then it all stops - what it does NOT have is real life - the shops are all the ohh soo familiar up scale top end shops Rolex Cartiers etc. That makes the souk no more than a high class... More

I personally don't really like malls, so I there is not much to say about this mall. It's almost impossible to find something cheap to eat. There are many clothing shops, movie theatres etc. However, they even have some small cultural items. Finding them can be difficult because you rarely find a map of the whole place.

The souks sound like you might see some of the traditional Beirut, but sadly this is not so. Given that nearly all of Beirut has been rebuilt recently I suppose its not surprising that the souks would be modern. The shops are all Western, from Louis Vuitton to Zara, so you wont get any local colour, and the cafes are... More

Good shopping experience: it's all there and in a rather nice setting (not your typical mall), as the shops are located in the old Beirut Souks. So you get to see daylight whenever you're out of the shop and there is also a few nice place to grab a coffee or have a bite. The Shopping extends into the nearby... More

A modern built shopping area, but it mostly offers high-end brands so the majority of visitors are only window-shopping.
