“The Street of pubs & restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Gemmayzeh Street is fun to go to with your friends... There is a variety of restaurants and pubs of different themes, music styles, and atmosphere... Better walk through the street than pass through it by car because there's traffic jam especially on the weekend.. yet there is a big parking lot half way through it and there's also valet parking for famous pubs and restaurants... Go have fun and enjoy yourselves with the friendly and joyous Lebanese people!

“Fabulous night-time atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I wish I could remember the names of all the bars we went in, but I'm struggling with names! It should definitely be on your bucket list for Beirut, from chic to cosy, there's something for all, and people are friendly, relaxed and welcoming. Loved it.

The trendiest street in Beirut as i understand it. Good restaurants. And some trendy bars if you are into that kind of thing.
