Right infront of AUB Main gate... this street is amazing. Always buzzing with life, even at 4am. Great Crepes and fast food restos are found there. Ice Cream, Manakish (the traditional Lebanese pastry) and even doughnuts. A cinema, bank, library and even shops are available as well.

If you are not a Uni student, I don't think you will find this street really attractive. The traffic is horrible to get in. Few mid-range restaurant here and there, very shops even less bars.

This is a nice part of Beirut, famous for The American University in Beirut, and several nice restaurants and cafes.

Just outside the AUB you have Bliss Street going from east to west. On this street you will find several small kebab restaurants and some american food chains like McDonalds and Dunkin´ Donuts. The KB kebab restaurant has been there since 1971 and is one of the better places, don´t judge it on it´s appearance.

great variety of food and very affordable prices as meals can be expensive in Beirut. Great for young travelers who want to meet other young people and students from the nearby American University of Beirut (so they will speak perfect English and may be able to give you some local tips on what to see and where to go).

Just like any other street in Beirut, Bliss Street is lined with small shops and eateries. I think it is over-rated and found nothing special nor spectacular about this street, except it is close to my hotel.

I love coming here. It's always crowded & full of life. There are a lot of small restaurants & snack joints. Take a cab because it's hard to find a parking space.
