the street is always busy (which is nt the case in Beirut in general; people do not like to walk there, or so it seems). it's a street fro shopping during the day and for socialising at night. a couple of nice places to have beer with friends, but also some very loud places.

We walked the length of Hamra and were not so impressed as others. There are the usual clothes and shoe shops which you can see in most cities, and there was a good mix of restaurants and cafes. If you have time try some of the side streets.

You can always find something to do in Hamra, either grab a coffee, a snack, shop or just people watch. Lots of modern day shopping retailers ranging in high-end products to affordable fashion.

Great restaurants, shops, lots of action on this street. Don't try driving down it, too busy. Symbolic of the love of life in Beirut.

Has a great selection of stores and places to eat in very short distance. Traffic is a problem at all times, and a bit noisy in the evening, but worth the time to see all the interesting places.
