As Nency posted yesterday, new rules were set for the nightlife in Gemmayze and a certain number of pubs were closed.
Here is an updated list of the closed pubs:
– Lounge 55
It appears that similarly to 2008, some pubs who have “wasta” are being kept open while other random pubs are being closed.
I was thinking about it this morning, and was wondering what difference does it make for Gemmayze habitants to sleep at 12 instead of 1 or 2 ?
For all i know, old people or people who don’t go out much and have kids sleep no later than 10 or 11 pm. So changing the closing hours is really stupid. The real problem is the traffic and the lack of parking space and Ziad Baroud, the minister of interior, proposed a very efficient way to handle it.
He urged Beirutâ€™s municipality to make efficient use of the Charles Helou bus station, by transforming it in part into a parking lot for people going to Gemmayzeâ€™s restaurants and pubs at night.
So what’s the big deal here ?
Let the ISF force the rules concerning the double glazing and sound proofing the ceilings, monitor the streets for drunk and annoying people and make the street a pedestrian one and everyone’s happy.

Yup yesterday we were talking about it but u didnt get my point ya 2ebne ..
I understand the people complaining about the sound but those old people for example who sleep at 10 everyday or even earlier. What difference does it make for them, if you remove the sound issue, to reduce the clubbing hours ??
Manno ra7 yikoun tari2 nawoume 3al 1 am or 2 am or 3 am or 4 am ..
i like the pedestrian part..it will be cool but i guess these guys who like to yfachkho bi their cars won’t be happy at all and those girls wearing 12 cm high heels won’t like the idea either :))! dommage!
Baroud covered that part as well whereas valet parking services can be used to escort those mam7ouneen 🙂
I think it will be the end of Gemmayze, Most of Night Clubs will be shifted to other places Like west Beirut Hamra where People have more tolerance.
They should be put Soundproof, But I didn’t understand why they have to close at 1 AM during weekend . Can they give valid explanation to tourists? All over Europe they have streets like Gemayzeh .
Everyone should just move to Jounieh.
