Full of places to discover. The walk towards the corniche is full of cafes. Nightlife spots are to the opposite side. Very lively street day or night. A must visit.

I love the energy in Hamra where every Lebanese has nice memories of the Golden age. This is where everything used to happen and it is getting back. It is a place where people can go 24/7 for coffee, breakfast, lunch, brunch, shopping, dining, drinking, dancing... A planet on its own...

The most glamorous street in Beirut of the 70s. Hamra street remains an attractive shopping and dining place. Very busy during the days and nights. A walk on the sidewalks tell you the story of the whole country in half an hour

everything and anything on Hamra Sreet. busy,noisy,atmospheric,light and wall to wall action just off main streets,pubs galore,nightlife and restaurants everywhere. all tastes catered for. unfortunately ,due to massive influx of new refugees ontop of the existing overload, leaves you feeling claustrophobic or overcrowded even. short walk from the sea and quaint restaurants with delicious food

A place to experience the exuberant Lebanese nightlife. You can have lunch/dinner at the many restaurants. Shop almost anything from the modern apparel to the Lebanese souvenirs. Or just have a good walk.
