You can't really describe Souks, it has to be seen. It is absolutely amazing, and jaw dropping. Daytime scenery is one thing, but you have to visit at night in order to really appreciate the wonders of lighting and style.

Don't let the name fool you; Beirut Souk is a very cosmopolitan shopping area and open space, with most of the well known and average brands (from fashion to jewelry), as well as a pretty good variety of restaurants. It's a modern open-space strip-mall that simply caters to all ages and family members. There is lots of space for your... More

You will find just about every designer shop you think of, but everything is very expensive. You might get yourself busy with some window shopping after all :)

It is where I go every time I am in Beirut, along with the neighboring Virgin Megastore in Martyrs' Square. There are shops of all famous brands, not to forget the well-known cafes and restaurants. It is THE place of leisure in Beirut

Architecture is modern and beautiful. But the shops are only really for very wealthy locals and tourists. Would have liked to see more young people around but they would be very priced out of it here.

You name it, it's here. Any shop you could possible want is here. The architecture of the Souks is absolutely amazing. It's very upmarket and well heeled Beirutis come here with their maids and friends to shop. There are also several restaurants, patisseries, coffee shops, delis etc. And of course, the shops. We aren't talking Primark, we are talking high... More

Souk means market, this used to be popular markets in old Beirut downtown but now it became a posh shopping arcade with all the biggest fashion stores and brands... You can find all the prices and all the top clothing brands in Beirut Souks but also a nice supermarket, cafés, restaurants, pubs, and much more... It is worth visiting while... More
