NEW FACULTY ORIENTATION
My Neighborhood - My Favorites
This is an opinionated list, and neither neutral nor comprehensive. It contains my personal recommendations of neighborhood businesses, ones that I patronize because they are friendly, polite, and offer quality products and services. A few others are noted because they are particularly useful for their hours or range of goods. The list is meant to get you started, and you will certainly develop your own favorites over time.
Newcomers may initially find it hard to locate these places since Beirut-style addresses are imprecise. I strongly recommend purchasing the ‘A-Z’ street maps of Beirut, Zawarib Beirut.
Ras Beirut still has many village-like qualities, and knowing shopkeepers on a first name basis is part of the neighborhood experience. Welcome!
