Great neighbourhood for an afternoon coffee, a chilled out dinner or for beers with friends. I visit every time I'm in Beyrouth and it changes pleasantly year on year and never loses its character.

One of the beautiful areas in Beirut, restaurants, pubs and night life, all the way to Mar Mkhael street. Full of life day and night, with the beautiful archeological buildings and alleys.

Small shops, street in the middle of a city in transformation, you stroll between road work, you find a bikeshop, then bars, restaurants with terrasse, it's fun and great atmosphere. It's closest to what i thought Beirut would be
