Beirut Nightlife: 74 reviews and 66 photos

  a street in Al-Aswaq
by call_me_rhia

As Beirut is coming out of the war, Beirut's inhabitants are coming out of their homes - and they are heading for the al-Aswaq area - or else downtown. This area was the first one to be renovated - and it's now lined wit expensive boutiques, bars, pubs, restaurants, clubs. Everyone seem to meet there at night to enjoy a chat, a dinner, a few drinks, a nargileh. It's buzzing!

Dress Code: Lebanese people dress up smartly when they go out, so try to do the same. And don't worry about dress codes: miniskirts are quite popular in this area.

Address: Beirut downtown
Directions: anywhere around place de l'etoile, in the pedestrian area
Theme: Other
