Beirut Souks is known for shopping, dining, and mixed-media entertainment, but also take time to explore the contemporary architecture and urban design in this central commercial district. Rebuilt in the early 1990s, in the same place that major souks had operated before their destruction in the Lebanese civil war, the region contains vast vaulted arcades and interconnected alleys and courtyards, with a respectful eye to conserving archaeological findings and surviving historical architecture. The souks are filled with international luxury brands and fashion boutiques, cafes and restaurants, a movie theater, and a children's science museum.

When you say souks you will think for old souks that Beirut had before.. It's now only for new brands and not in relation with the old majestic Beirut..So sad

Nice events during the holidays with decorations all over the souks. Large varieties of shops.
Beirut high life with all the top end brands set in beautiful sand coloured buildings
Looks like it's a modern take on the souks that have been here for years and flourished in the mid 70's but I don't see many stores open. Lots of history around here, some of it going back to Phoenician times.
This area is a bit sad as it has all been beautifully restored but the shops are all high end expensive places. The souks should be for everyone, not just the rich. Also, lots of the cafes and restaurants near the clock tower seem to have closed leaving the area a bit lifeless. The constant presence of military personnel in some parts can be a bit intimidating too. The religious buildings and archaeological ruins are interesting.
One of our best souks in Lebanon. Too bad all the places are closed, however, for the holidays, they are making nice events with a cute decoration (have been the same ever since I remember). Another thing was that I went to check the decoration, however, their light was turned off.
