Sadly not many people to watch because of the troubles!! Still nice cafés! Tourist prices though.... Short distance from the Beirut Souks (rather up market)

A very beautiful place, will remind you of Champs Elysees of Paris. I was fascinated by the environment and most of all the sound of the Prayer's Athan with the Church's Bells :)

Go and have a stroll here, just to see the St georges cathedral (a must), teh Parliament buildings and the reconstructed downtown area. Sad to see the children madly driving their tricycles around the Etoile, because there's no other park anywhere for them to do so otherwise. You will see le tout beirut having ice cream and puffing away on... More

I walked through the area on the way to Beirut Souk. I had my bag searched up entering but the ubiquitous security and armed forces that cover the city. The streets and nice enough and there is plenty of food options available to you. With the lack of through traffic the area lacks any real life to it so it... More

Restaurant with seating available both outside and inside. The square is in a very safe area popular with families. The staff speak reasonable English and serve great Fattouch, Tabouleh and Kebe as starters. Main courses are more international in taste.

This is what Beirut should be. A community mosque, humble, elegant and integrated with its surrounding ... Jno imperial ambitions tied to it

I have been to Beirut several times and in that time I've really seen a change in downtown. It is worth a visit once to see the beauty of the architecture and the detail of post-war reconstruction. But between the advent of the new souks and Zaltouney Bay restaurants and the political situation here and in Syria, this beauty is... More
