Ain El Mraisseh is in Beirut, situated along Beirut's coastal Cornish, which stretches for several kilometers, and is only a few minutes away from the renovated city center. This district was famous for its nightlife in the early 70's and is gradually regaining its reputation. It has the highest concentration of luxury hotels in Beirut and hosts internationally recognized coffee shops.

Get in

Ain El Mraiseh is located just to the North west of Downtown Beirut, beside the Beirut Marina. Walking is the easiest way to get there as it is not far at all.

See

  • Souffleur Museum[1] (Antique Collection), Sinno Street, Ain El Mreisseh 01 365 313. Call for private visits.

Do

  • Roller Skate along the wide smoothly paved seafront Corniche. At sunset the entire population heads towards the corniche to watch the sunset, so if you'd like some space to skate fast go there in the morning or late evening when the crowds disperse. The Corniche stretches for many kilometers and is absolutely perfect for skating especially because of the stunning view of the sea.
