“a khaliji place...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Reconstruction did a lot here. I would say maybe too much... The restoration of ancient buildings was done in a way that... now they look fake!!! The place has no character and you do not find (a lot) of lebanese hanging here around. Apart in the so called "Beirut Souks" that are nothing more then a "sophisticated" shopping mall developped more in horizontal than vertical.
Worth a visit? Maybe yes. Definetively I wouldn't do my best to go there twice...

Sadly not many people to watch because of the troubles!! Still nice cafés! Tourist prices though.... Short distance from the Beirut Souks (rather up market)

“Great place for hangout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

A very beautiful place, will remind you of Champs Elysees of Paris. I was fascinated by the environment and most of all the sound of the Prayer's Athan with the Church's Bells :)
