Just a hip, happening street where there is something for everybody. Much more for the partying crowd than for the family crowd!
If you like to see old and new Beirut side by side then this is a good place to visit. Many good restaurants and pubs however after 10 pm or so the place gets overcrowded and a bit boisterous. Marinara is a good restaurant for Italian food but it is small and gets very crowded quickly at lunch or dinner.
Our friends recommended this street for us, and informed us that it is full of life and pubs, but when we went there during the weekend, it was almost empty, and pubs were hardly with anyone in it, Check the new areas, this street lost the peak.
Definitely go for a walk in Gemmayze street, early evening bar hopping, or dinner in one of the street's cool restaurants. You'll get a real feel of what lebanese hospitality and famous nightlife is about!
Heart of beirut..., some pubs stay till 2am...,3,4 am...,bar hopping...,good prices....looking for food go to cafe leila at the beginning of the street on the left(u need reservation, cauz it is crowded)..., then continue your tour in the street....
Perfect! We had some of the best food and drinks in Beirut. Many small pubs and restaurants to chose from and the three we visited were great.
this is the street where you want to come and just chill out. it's away from the touristy areas, and it's just a street filled with one great restaurant and cafe, after another. my hotel was just down the street, so i strolled through the neighborhood every day. loved it!
No more traffic jam. The street is loosing its crowd and standard. Trendy places are in other areas. This is a positive trend and the business is paying the price of arrogance, poor service and customer ripoff
