Five years after its launch, Uruguay Street is unfortunately shutting down. The pedestrian nightlife spot located just behind Samir Kassir Garden and the Annahar building had at some point over 30 pubs and restaurants. I used to go there quite often after work and it was always packed but the events that took place last year, the security measures taken in the area and the unrealistic rent prices in Solidere forced a lot of pubs to shut down. Main Street was the only pub still open in Uruguay Street in the past few months but according to LBCI, it’s closing down as well.
