The place is beautiful and new but as everywhere in the down town of Beirut : nothing that shows you that you are in lebanon, just shops and restaurants.

Expected to see more of artisans and craft shops, but only found a few galleries. Realxing area for an afternoon stroll with a few nice buildings, but unfortunately not more than that.

I love Saifi village, it feels like you left Lebanon and entered a different country. Beautiful colorful buildings and narrow streets. Take a stroll or sit in one of the cafes and enjoy the calmness.

This is a very attractive area for a stroll. There are lots of vacant store fronts but some restaurants seem to be opening.

Located at the former front line during the Lebanese cicil war the area was completely devastated. On the drawing boards this "quartier des arts" was born. It reflects very much the vision of the architects: modern, inspired by French architecture, space for upmarket boutiques, art...More
