is situated in the Beirut city of Lebanon. The square is an unmistakable symbol of Beirut, most prominent for its Art Deco design. It is one of the best place in this city. Tourists come here from all over the world with their family members and friends to visit this place.
The 1930s clock tower, gem of the square, was a blessing from Lebanese-Brazilian émigré Michel Abed to the Lebanese Government. Today, the square is loaded with individuals from all kinds of different backgrounds, travelers, and local people, adults, and kids, who come here to eat, walk or appreciate the road life.

The area lacks atmosphere . The lack of any traffic, except government officials and the heavy but understandable police presence does add to the feeling. Café we went to had overpriced beers and incredibly slow service. However, in time the area will develop a better vibe. Neat buildings for sure _ clock tower is cool

A classy place, giving the feeling that you are in Europe. Just within the old city it brings a lot of charm with the little cafes and the pegeons. Worth a visit.

It is a small clean square with some restaurants and St George Maronite Cathedral next to it. I think restaurants are a bit more pricey than usual. While there the square was considerably quiet - I was expecting to find it more crowdy. The clock is cute and also smaller than expected.

During the fighting, the clock was removed and stored to protect it. Now proudly standing in the middle surrounded by cafes, fountains and high end shops.
We ate at Place de l’Etolie cafe which had the same mezze the other cafes had. But the little kids could run among the pigeons in the circle.

This place used to be the heart of Beirut until the government shut down all the connect roads that lead to it for security reasons. Lately access to the place is permitted, the area is very beautiful , construction to renovate this old part after the Lebanese civil war went during the 90s, they have done a perfect job. The atmosphere is breath taking, but unfortunately the memory of old Beirut was lost, it used to be the center of so many busy markets like the fish market the vegetable market (Souq al Nouriyeh), even the Jewelers Market, with the Parliament building dominating the roundabout. It is still a very good place to visit, the prices of the restaurants and clothing shops are a bit on the high end but still it is worth the visit.

Great little square in the centre of the city which is well maintained and has some lovely cafes with outdoor seating surrounding the square. The clock itself is one of the most recognised symbols of the city so it’s a must see when visiting and on the weekend. It’s a really calm and quiet area to escape the bustle of the city as long as you don’t mind being surrounded by a lot pigeons! Certainly worth the walk to take a look and admire.
