The Solidere is Beirut down town, the area cater the house of parliament, restaurants, cafes, high end stores and offices. Unfortunately most restaurants and cafes are over priced yet the area has its own charm. Overall recommended

Down Town of Beirut or Centre Ville is the modern and old renovated part of the lebanese capital. Solidere is the place where you can find everything you need. Very dynamic and business area of Beirut.
