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.

This is a mall that opened up recently in the Achrafieh area in Beirut. This mall houses many stores (mid-range to high), restaurants and cafe's, and movie theaters. This is the largest mall in Beirut, and it offers free parking. You can spend a nice day here between shopping for gifts, make-up, clothes, house-supplies and then having a nice lunch, then perhaps going to watch a movie. Or you can simply choose to go there for coffee and just enjoy the passers by..
What to buy: Anything and everything that you like. Some shops I often go to are:
- Vanilian (Furniture and house supplies) - this place is so funky and has original stuff to check out even if you dont want to buy anything.
- Lancel - always great place to buy a gift for a friend.
- Maria Pino - love the shoes!
- The Apple shop - although Lebanon is more expensive than any other place I know when it comes to this lol
- Accessorize - nice accessories and I often get my lil niece gifts from there.
- Aishti - If you want to splurge or spend spend spend on some Dior sunglasses or a Prada place this is the place to be.
..... aaah the list is really endless...
What to pay: No bargaining here...You pay whatever the tag says you should pay ;-)

Housed in the beautifully restored Opera Cinema building, Virgin Megastore of Beirut is a 1930s Art Déco landmark on Place des Martyrs. Indeed, there are many Virgin Megastores in the world, but what makes this one special is that it is trilingual, Arabic, French and English, reflecting the Lebanese culture. CDs, DVDs and books in the three languages are sold, many of which reflect the local culture and history. Virgin is also a great source for new local music combining western and eastern influences.
