Rue Gouraud


Rue Gouraud

Rue Gouraud is a mixed residential and commercial street in Gemmayzeh, a neighborhood in the Achrafieh district of Beirut in Lebanon. The street, which was named after the French General Henri Gouraud, has become one of Beirut's trendiest streets. The street borders the Saifi Village and runs east of Centre Ville extending from Avenue Georges Haddad and reaching the Corniche du Fleuve. In 2004, "Travel + Leisure" magazine called the street "SoHo by the Sea," due to its colorful and chic cafés amid 1950's apartment buildings and hole-in-the-wall shops. [http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/back-in-action&page=2] The street leads to the Saint Nicolas Stairs, also known as Escalier de l'Art, where art festivals are held every year. The stairs also lead to Rue Sursock. The street is also walking distance from Rue Monot and Saifi Village.
