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.

We were staying in the area and it was very convenient and safe. Easy to walk to everything but don’t make a special trip.

To be honest, I did not find the street very special. There are some beautiful old houses and restaurants, however you can find these in many other areas in Beirut. I did not mind seeing it once but not in a rush to go back there and don't really get the hype about the street or the area surrounding it.

This street is filled with a great mixture of bars and restaurants. Try to go early at 7-9pm to avoid the worst crowds and be sure to get a table at any of the places. This street is perfect for a night out and get a feel of the vibrant Beirut.

We were walking around after lunch and stumbled across this amazing find of a street. It reminds me of Hell's Kitchen in NYC, or South Street in Philadelphia. There are many shops and restaurants along this strip: from SIM cards to Sushi, Mexican, etc. My advice: go on an empty stomach, and go in the early evening!
