Overview

Described as the "Greenwich Village" or "Soho" of Beirut, Gemmayze is a residential neighbourhood that has emerged as one of Beirut's trendiest districts. It is bordered by Saifi Village/Downtown Beirut to the west and Achrafieh to the south and its main thoroughfare, rue Gouraud, contains many popular restaurants and bars. The district has some beautiful traditional as well French-mandate architecture and is charming day and buzzing by night.

Loved the experience of moving from bar to bar, as we do not get this in the gulf area of the Middle East. The culture was lively and people were extremely friendly.

Such a cool place. What a transformation this area has undergone. Some cool pubs and restaurants. The beautiful old architecture is just stunning with some of the renovated buildings up and down the streets. Busier at night, a must see.
