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

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.

at the begging of the launching of Saifi Village , the place used to be more alive, as if it is getting deserted now. but still good clean and quite for a walk or a coffe

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...

Absolutely worth a stroll. Start your day with breakfast at Meat the Fish, and wander around the boutiques. It's a small artsy section of town but lovely.

This place has beautiful architecture, modern, quiet and simply a nice place to walk.. it can be reached from Gumeizeh on foot; a few artisanal and artistic shops. It was a nice quiet change after a long walk looking at art galleries in Gumeizeh..
