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.

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.

When visiting the new downtown area with all its high end shops, you must pass by this star square which has the parliament of Lebanon and the clock in its center.
Nice quiet area with churches and mosques on the side.

The Place de L'etoile is right next to the Parliament and packed with security men but do not disturb anyone. There is nothing special about the Place except the various over priced cafes and restaurants next to it> Overall recommended if you are in the area
