Hamra street is simply not my type of things. It has some very good pubs and lower prices than most places in general. I just lose the vibe due to the traffic jams in the street and finding some place to park the car since valets aren't just everywhere.

A great place to stroll in the evening, windowshop, find a café or bar. Not cheap but there are cheaper places hiding in plain sight, but it's the place to hang out and be seen. Music bars, trendy.

Nice shops to see and buy but they are little bet expensive major brand shops exist. For a break and nightlife there are many restaurants and coffe shops along the street

Going to Hamra street felt like visiting a street in a European city. The place is filled with high end shops and restaurants. It is the perfect place to grab a bite from a very good place or shop for yourself and loved ones. Considering my lack of interest in shopping, I enjoyed walking the long street and looking at...

We were told to visit Hamra Street for lunch and to do some shopping. The area didn't disappoint. There are plenty of dining choices and as for the shops, everything you could want from fashion and clothing to souvenirs. Plenty going on and a great atmosphere.

I used to live in this neighborhood and it always had a "sabby-chic" vibe to it. After an 11 year absence I stayed at a hotel by Harma Street and went out of my way to avoid it. Most of the businesses are boxy, chain-stores now and a lot of the good restaurants have moved or closed.

This is my second stay at Al-Hamra. It is central, busy and always awake. Anytime of the day , you can find something to eat or do. Hamra is a handy shopping spot for quick fix. You can reach anywhere easily.

It seems it's not the hot spot in Beirut anymore. It become a bit mainstream but anyway in my opinion still worth to go there and as well to stay in that area. And there are still some cool Bars and really good restaurants

I love this street in Beirut, you just walk to sea hundred of retail shops, cofee shops and fast food restaurants. Also you can enjoy a drink at some resto-pubs
