It is one of the most living street in Beirut. Full of restaurants and caffes with good shopps. You can buy souvenirs and even go to gym. If you dont like cars and trafic, it is not a place for you.

A very popular shopping street in Beirut. Many shops, cafes and eateries along the street and the smaller streets intersecting Hamra streets. Good for a walk along the street and the area. Crowded by day, less at night, though cafes and restaurants remain busy through the evening till just before midnight.

This is a street full of shops and restaurants.From local to chain restaurants. The same for the stores, some are very nice others very cheaps.
The street is full of taxi and the traffic jam is constant. Less traffic early in the morning and very late at night. The coffee shops don't open before 9 0r 10am.
The nicest hotel on the street is the Crowne Plaza.

Some would love this road but I preferred the old town...this part of town seemed seedy at night, lots of shops with the same stuff in them, but I just didn't feel comfortable.
