A chic area

Lots of designer shops and restaurants. A very nice area with beautiful buildings. Modern area of downtown. Felt like being in Paris.

Just at this spectacular place, you feel the real meaning of Beirut, "The Paris of The Middle East". It is truly a hallmark for entire Lebanon. Just walking around will give you the strong believe of how strong and smart the Lebanese people are.

At the heart of Lebanon’s capital, Beirut Central District (BCD) is an area thousands of years old, traditionally a focus of business, finance, culture and leisure. Its reconstruction constitutes one of the most ambitious contemporary urban developments.

This is the new down town of Beirut, renovated and fresh, with shops, restaurants, cafes and small attractions. Good place to spend the day with kids and on a nice sunny day.

this place is well known for it's trends and high quality restaurants, the area was built after the war in Beirut, it has a historical feeling because of the architecture. The problem is that all restaurants are closed and the area is not accessible for the public because of the latest troubles and because of having the parliament inside it.
