Sassine Square is a town square in Beirut, and one of the city's most prominent urban areas. Located in the Achrafieh district, Sassine Square is one of the biggest and oldest squares in Beirut.

Historically and popularly named after one of the oldest and most prominent families of Beirut, Sassine Square was officially inaugurated in the early '90s under the auspices of President Elias Hrawi, Prime-Minister Rafic Hariri, Member of Parliament Michel Sassine, and the Municipal Council of Beirut City.

Sassine Square is reputed to be a key social and commercial focal point of the Lebanese capital. Beyond being a residential area with a large pedestrian and transportation hub, it hosts renowned commercial and leisure centers, including the ABC Mall, attracting large amounts of visitors and tourists .

Like the ancient Agora of the Greek towns, Sassine Square is becoming a meeting place where all the Lebanese from different cultures and confessions communicate daily.
