    Liquor shops: liquor shops

    by Robin020 Written Jan 29, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can find stores selling liquor on a few streets near the clocktower. Try Zaki al-Arsuzi (across from Al Kommeh restaurant) and Jbrail Dalal streets. There is a liquor store a few metres away from the Aleppo Hotel (on a side street from the clocktower). In the new city there is a store at Al Hateb square. Cost is usually 60 SYP for a Efes 16oz (Nov 2010). Restaurants and hotels that cater to Westerners will generally serve alcoholic beverages.

    What to buy: alcohol

    Souks of Aleppo: Shopping in Aleppo

    by MM212 Updated May 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Aleppo souk fits the romanticised image of a Middle Eastern bazaar in every possible way. The grid of narrow alleys and the life within it have not changed in centuries and will hopefully stay the same for years to come. I found Aleppo's souk to be the best I've seen in the middle east, both in terms of charm and quality of merchandise. It is a true shopper's delight with everything from silk scarves to shishas, antiques to spices, jewellery to food products, and western clothes to traditional outfits, not to mention Aleppine soap. One would be best served by dedicating an entire day to wandering and getting lost in the labyrinth of alleys. Likely a shopkeeper or two will offer you tea with mint. Do accept the offer and do not rush to leave. The attached photos contain some scenes from the souk, but for more photos, check out the travelogue: "Shopping in the Aleppo Souk, and for its history, turn to the tip in the list of "Things To Do" on this Aleppo page.

    Orient House Antiques: I've got to have that knocker!

    by Tijavi Written Jan 20, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shopping is normally the least of my priorities when traveling - especially on this weekend trip since I only brought along a small backpack. But when I visited Orient House Antiques and saw the clenched fist knockers (from old homes mainly in the Al Jdeida area), I've never been more resolved: never mind how heavy it was, I got to have one! So there, I haggled and finally got what I wanted, a 130-year-or-so relic from Al Jdeida's glorious past at 2,500 Syrian pounds (about 50 US dollars). Before parting with my cash, I made sure I won't have any problems with airport authorities. Orient House Antiques also sells other interesting stuff, and the staff are quite honest about the authenticity of their wares (reproductions vs. originals).

    Now, if I can only find a place to install my most-cherished find...

    Antique Shops in Jdeideh Quarter: Middle Eastern Antiques

    by MM212 Written Aug 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For lovers of Antiques, particularly Middle Eastern artefacts, Aleppo offers excellent value. Persian and Caucasian Rugs, vases, decorative items and even chandeliers can be found at a fraction of the prices in Western markets. Although the old city contains some antique shops, the best ones are typically in Jdeideh Quarter. Attached are photos of some of the available items.

    Armenian liquor stores: Wine, beer and arak

    by iwys Updated Mar 24, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are several Armenian liquor stores in Aleppo, where you can buy Syrian arak, wine and beer, as well as some imported stuff, mostly from Lebanon, Egypt and Morocco. Personally, I found the imported Moroccan wine better than either the Syrian or Lebanese. I wouldn't really recommend any of the Syrian wine or beer.

    The liquor stores are closed on Fridays.

    The Souqs...

    by coceng Written Jun 11, 2005

    You should get a good map, either from guidebooks or from the locals to move around inside The Souqs. It's vast ! Some areas are just greasy & noisy & some areas are just as grand like what you could see in my photo on the left.
