Where to go when you visit Lebanon - Site 2: Gemayze

The below pictures have been taken yesterday, on a Thursday night, while we all had work the next day

Gemayze Street 1

Inside the pub, this picture was taken before anyone got there, we were early because we were supposed to surprise a friend for her birthday.

The above picture was also taken inside the pub, but this time it was a bit late, I made a bit blurry so people are not recognizable

Gemayze street 2


It is not a historical monument, or archeological site, however Gemayze is just a town located in Beirut at a walking distance of Solidere (Downtown Beirut). This town is basically one of the oldest inhabited towns in Lebanon, and you can notice it due to the architecture of its buildings and only made of 3 or 4 storeys.
Only recently has this city become the booming place of night life in Lebanon, just after Monot. Its a long street, with pubs and restaurants situated on both sides from its beginning till its end.

What can you do in the pubs in Lebanon?
Well as I have noticed the word pub differs maybe from country to country, but you can mainly have a decent meal there, however its main purpose is having a drink with friends, listening to music, any kind of music, depends on the pub's style, and on a program made out throughout the week, can be 80's music, cuban, pop, etc... And of course, dancing!

If you like the night life, this is the place to be.
