Lots to do and a feeling different from anywhere else in Beirut, Hamra recently has suffered from gentrification and risen sighthound significantly in price, abandoning its original college neighborhood roots.

This is the place to go to see the Lebanese living the good life. The clientele here is glamorous and certainly know hows to enjoy live. They've also been through enough hard times to really believe in carpe diem. The food here is good -- a mix of pasta, salads, and upscale versions of local food but the real draw ...Popular withLuxury

The Best Italian Vibe you can get. from food to ambiance to interior. It may be a small restaurant, but one step behind the door immerses you with genuine Italian tradition. The Margherita Pizza is a must have, with delicious pasta with bacon and mushroom sauce, and an exquisite Tiramisu to end that perfect meal. Highly recommended.

So, this joint is in all the guidebooks, but who cares? It's good, and it's cheap (and real live Lebanese people eat there too). It's a great little time capsule, with weird murals and paintings on the walls. Specials change every day, and you can get all kinds of home-cooking kinds of dishes, as well as simple stuff like boiled ...Popular withVegetarianFoodiesBudget

Set in a charming French Mandate period building, Julia's enjoys a decent reputation underpinned by its heavily French-influenced menu, though you'll find alot of international Fusion dishes too. Book a table on the patio when the weather is good.

One if the best places to visit form the pubs of the Gemmayze Street. I always run into artists, architects, businessmen, and feel nice class level of this resto/pub. It offers dinner but wouldn't recommend it due to the crowd, but I'd rather just go there and have a drink on the bar.Popular withTrendsters

This is basically ground zero for Lebanon's artisanal and regional foods. The great thing about the country is that it's so tiny, it's feasible for kindly old grannies to trundle into Beirut once every couple of weeks and cook up an enormous lunch, then go home the same night. Tawlet serves a lunch that changes daily to focus on a ...Popular withGreenVegetarianFoodies

This is a semi-fancy restaurant in the downtown area, just off Place d'Etoile. It has some nice sidewalk seating, and prices are pretty reasonable. I was exceptionally excited about it because the menu is a bit broader and has some dishes you don't see very often in restaurants--eggplant fatteh, for instance. And the guys next to me were eating some ...Popular withVegetarianFoodiesFamilies

More of a nightclub than a restaurant but the place to come and see Beirut's fabulous, younget set at play (it made me feel about 105). Some ok seafood dishes. Preferred the Lebanese dishes. Arrive late and party all night.Popular withNightlife
