It is quite impossible to describe down-town Beirut to someone that has never been there. It is even more difficult to do so to someone who has only heard about war and destruction when Beirut was ever mentioned. Solidere is one of those places that have to be seen.

A landmark in Lebanon. Regardless of the busy days, a walk in Solidere at night is stunning. You have to see this in Beirut.

It has created a space of historically significant buildings and streets, with pleasant amenities, lively cafes and mostly high-end retail, that is unmatched anywhere in the region, or... More
