“Too congested and crowded.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Perhaps for women that have shopping frenzy it is cool. But the street is way too congested all day as it has a mixture of clothes stores to street cafe's as well as Hotels and Restaurants. So in a place like Beirut with people smoking shisha, shopping all the time or eating what do you expect? It is Ok to see, for curiosity perhaps. But would not recommend to hand out there as it is very noisy and chaotic.

“too crowded”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

You will only like this place if you are missing the feeling of being overwhelmed and crowded. Lots of variety of shops and cafes, plenty of people going back and forth and looooots of beggars.

“Love it!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Its my favorite place in Beirut, I used to come here everytime when I was in Lebanon, there are plenty of restaurants, coffeeshops, bars, shops, bookstores, art galleries, and its close to everything (cinemas and corniche, the seaside)

Its crowded and u see people from everywhere, but i truly love it...
