Just to be clear, Solidere is the name of the private company tasked with redeveloping Beirut's historic downtown area... what they did was cancel all existing real estate deeds and combine them into one mega plot. This plot included government buildings, hotels, commercial venues, restaurants,...More

The Solidere is Beirut down town, the area cater the house of parliament, restaurants, cafes, high end stores and offices. Unfortunately most restaurants and cafes are over priced yet the area has its own charm. Overall recommended

Down Town of Beirut or Centre Ville is the modern and old renovated part of the lebanese capital. Solidere is the place where you can find everything you need. Very dynamic and business area of Beirut.

The place is getting deserted by the day. Shops closed and there are very few still open. The architecture is nice though. Go for a quick walk on your way to Beirut Souks or Zeitouna Bay

Trendy part of beirut with all-new most uninhabited apartments and international brand shops. Not much to see if you are not planning to buy from high end brands. However one must go to the open air mall in Solidere known as Beirut Souks.
