Unfortunately when we arrived the street, all stores were closed. this is not related with our arriving day. I think the store moved out. You can reach by walking from downtown.

Beirut had to rebuild everything from scratch, so I wouldn't expect anything... but this area is a bit fake.. especially for an european person. FUll of luxury brands and restaurants/ bars.. it is overall nice but lacks of charm

nice little area different from the rest with many little shops that are mostly in the artistic side of things.

The neighborhood was heavily damaged during the Lebanese Civil War. The company Solidere acquired the land and buildings and totally rebuilt it. It is very nice (and expensive), but lacks the character of the old neighborhood. There are some cool boutiques and galleries.

Beirut is full of surprises. When you walk in Saifi Village you'd think you're in Europe. I very nice quiet area with couple of good restaurants to visit.

Old Beirut renovated, this is a village inside a downtown in the heart of Beirut, pass by it when visiting the center of Beirut as it is unique and full of Art Deco shops...
