El Hamra street in nice one full of shops, you can do your shopping have a quick lunch there but not worth to go there specifically.

Nothing special, just shops like in any other city but with more noise and more fuming from the cars. Nice shops though and nice cafes but like the standard of any medium/big city.

Hamra will always stay the heart of Beirut. A typical shopping destination mixed with the best taste Lebanon has to offer. Yet at night having a drink in on of those lively pubs is a different experience. Love it, live it.

The famous hamra street is well known for having good restaurants, a lot of retail shops and few narrow streets where you can enjoy a drink while listening to live music. don't miss passing by if you're around!

Although everyone is so fascinated about it, I felt like it is a bit overrated. Yet, it is a nice area for shopping while seeing the traditional streets of Beirut.

Very crowded. Not a real shopping street as expected. The shops are not fabulous or attractive . I'd rather go to a shopping center in the downtown.

A very attractive spot to visit day or night but specially in early evening. Excellent shopping stores with a big variety of top brands/marks of latest clothing fassions. very busy, lively and attractive pubs/restaurants for teenage crowds. A really must visit spot.
