Shopping location

A good shopping location in beirut, not much to see other than the crowded streets and shops, some cool restaurants and cafes are around the place.

This place is well known to many because it is surrounded by many cafes, shops and restaraunts such as Starbucks, pinkberry and the Cheesecake Factory. I went out with friends and to my surprise the service and the cleanliness of this place were not satisfying at all and the waiters were very unfriendly!

We enjoyed our time there. Lots of places were your kids can play enjoy there time & you can enjoy shopping especially at Dunes. Many coffee shops serves Shisha & some has playing areas in the basement like Ward Elsham. All over a good place to spend your time with children.

It does have places like h&m and other staples however avoid the toilets! We were robbed of our cash in there! A visit to the cheesecake factory was well worth the day out and I would go back just for that. Just keep your wits about you :)

It's just a regular city just like any other. Lots of shopping places but that's just about it, any mall would have more shops.

Lots of fashion shops, nice cafes and restaurants, always busy, a must when the weather is nice as lots of open air places, it has 2 small shopping malls with nice brands and some street shops also, you can almost find everything you need there.

It my least favorite street in Beirut I think it is fake, even faker with all the people drinking shisha and shopping. I dont like the design of the centers on both sides. They dont reflect any taste in design or even fashion! The only thing I like about the street is walking from Hamra to it or vice versa.... More

We were told this was the best place for shopping etc in Beirut. This is very misleading. This is a shopping centre like you would find anywhere in a major western city. Bit boring, overpriced, and cold atmosphere. Nice if you like malls etc

In the heart of beirut verdun is one of the main areas to shop with middle to high end shops. There are three buildings with shops inside and on the way. There are also restaurants and coffe shops and hotels like holiday inn. If you want to shop in Beirut it is. Good area to stay.
