    Arax Street in Borj Hammoud

    Borj Hammoud is an area in east Beirut, just east of Beirut River. There are a lot of clothes shops (not too expensive) around Arax Street and Armenia Street. There are also many shops selling gold.
    As many people living in Borj Hammoud are of Armenian origin you will see some shops with signs in Armenian.

    Music I bought

    At this huge store you find different things on different floors. In the basement you find the cameras, computers etc. On the fist floor you have books, magazines, maps and video films and most are in English. On the second floor you have the music department with a lot of CDs by Lebanese artists and from other countries. Around the walls there are many headphones and you can listen to any CD you want. The store is opened until midnight.

  • Solidere in Downtown Beirut

    by GraceH Written Feb 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to do some European-style shopping (Prada, Hugo Boss, Virgin Records), combine it with maybe having some tea, Lebanese pastries and smoking a hookah and later picking up some Lebanese souvenirs, Solidere is a wonderful place to walk, browse, eat, take it easy and spend some money at the shops.

    What to pay: High-end shopping.

    designer shopping street: Verdun

    by peaceness98 Written Aug 9, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    constructed by a woman-Dolly Debs

    This is the expensive part- i don't recommend buying designer goods from here you'll find them cheaper elsewhere (hefty taxes)

    What to buy: Get a haircut at Joe Raad's instead- he's on Verdun. He's very creative, although you'll probably get one of his assistants.

    What to pay: Too much for designer goods.
    US$150-300 for haircut, color and dry

    solidaire at nite

    You'll find plenty of shops, restaurants, coffee shops, etc in the city center.

    Heavy reconstruction has taken place to give it a french theme.

    What to pay: Lots if you are a fellow weakling when it comes to will power

    ksara wine

    It's a really tiny corner shop selling wine and spirits, as well as salamis, hams, and charcuterie in general, owned by a very nice man who's most willing to give you advice on Lebanese products

    What to buy: ksara wine, which is described as "robust dry and fruity, with a strong personality". There's a red and a wine variety - this one is very fruity. You can also buy arak there

    What to pay: about 7000-8000 Lebanese pounds for a bottle of red or white ksara
