A good walk down bliss will give all you need for products and services, as well as entertainment and meals. Hamra has it all.

This street is rite opposite the main gate of the American University of Beirut. Its filled with young students and the coffee shops, fast food places and shops cater to that. There is a cinema on this street as well. Very good places to eat and have street food as well.

One of the oldest and busiest streets in Beirut. It runs along the American University of Beirut. Full of students, professors, and people of education interest. One sees the AUB buildings on one side of the street, and all kinds of shops, book stores, restaurants on the other side.

One of the best streets in Beirut...there are plenty of snacks and restaurants of all types of food and sweets...it's known especially because it's where the American university of Beirut is there...there are many students and that's why you can find such places besides bookshops even cinema...it's becoming more and more crowded all day long...a must see in Beirut
