Good to walk though and compare the new to old however only expect to find high end shops. Lots of cafe options available. Very little atmosphere or ambience.

The shops are very clean and fancy with all the designers like Dior, Fendi, Louis Vuitton etc. The prices are very expensive in comparison to Europe and the states, so if you're coming from any of them you will find nothing interesting in Beirut Souks.

I must give credit to the developers of this property... They built a beautiful, landmark shopping area and have attracted up-scale retailers. However, I have found it to be too crowded and too expensive.

Very upscale shopping in the Beirut Souks. Don't let the name fool you, these are nothing like traditional Souks, but rather is an outdoor modern mall. It's nice to walk around, but everything is very expensive and targeted mainly at tourists.

Beirut Souks is a very popular destination to Lebanese citizens. It is mainly a shopping destination ( and by that I mean that TripAdvisor should include it to its Shopping list ). It is a modern renovated old Souk with typical French architecture with a Lebanese twist. The site is beautiful and well maintained. Prices can go from affordable to... More

Heard some stories about this area. It was said there is no Lebanese culture there. It was bought by world bank something like that, that's also why you see lots of soldiers but no Lebanese people.
