It’s a shopping mall with the same (western) brands you can find anywhere. Ok if you live and shop here, not worth the time for visitors, imho.

This place offers good food. I tried the pain perdu, salad bar, and a Chicken Sandwich. They were all good and tasty. The service was great and for staff is very friendly. But, the prices are very high.

A must visit place to see the history of this great city and the old days it lived. It has been destroyed by the civil war but rebuilt and still has its charm

The souks are well modernized and out of a mall turning into a visiting spot. If hanging around in the center needs not to be skipped, as there is nothing much to see in Beirut.

We did a walking tour through the Beirut Souks and Mosque. Again discussing history and all the events that has happened making what Lebanon is today. We took our time and wasn’t rushed.

Seemed a bit too clean and modern with lots of name brand shops. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this souk unless it is on your way to other destinations in town.

If, like me, you have visited Hamra Street, only to be disappointed by its squalid nature, this may be more what you are looking for. The buildings are old style but modern and there is a mix of big name and local brands. The architecture...More

Beirut Souks are a very modern part of the city you will not find the souvenirs that represents Lebanon, however the right place to find them is in a small city north west of Beirut around 35 Kilometers called Jubail... More
