Saturday night transforms Beirut into a hub of barhopping and nightclubbing. But when Sunday rolls around, party-hosting neighborhoods revert to a place to be enjoyed by residents. The Daily Star visited four neighborhoods to see how the vibe shifts from rowdy Saturday evening to tranquil Sunday afternoon. On this Saturday night a new hub of bars in a recently built complex on Makdisi Street was packed full of patrons – suggesting Hamra is not yet on its last legs.There are as many people on the street during the day as at night these days in Hamra.The pubs are mostly closed but there are still many quality restaurants.Not much else can be done in the area on Sunday afternoon, but it is only a short, pleasant walk to places like Abdel Wahab or Falamanki in Sodeco.Gemmayzeh has returned however to its role as a residential neighborhood, as expats and natives enjoy the relative peacefulness that had deserted the street for a few years.Gemmayzeh on Sunday afternoon
