Hamra Area, Beirut


Also known as “Rue 31” or 31st street, Hamra street is one of the main streets and economic hubs of the city of Beirut, located in the neighborhood holding the same name, Hamra. It is also the liveliest street in the Middle East area ever both by day and night, synonymous with luxury, amazing food, fashion, and night life thanks to its myriad of restaurants, shops, cafes, traditional Lebanese confectionaries, pubs and hotels.

Prior to 1975, Hamra Street was referred to as Beirut's "Champs Elysées" as it was visited all year round by American, European and Arab tourists as well as students from closeby American University of Beirut and Lebanese American University.

In a nutshell, it is the real heart of Beirut, the street which never sleeps, always lively and full of people.
