Literally meaning "the banks of the lake," Les Berges du Lac is the new business district of Tunis. This area started to expand during the 1990, as a result of a great urbanization project of the lagoon between the airport and the Tunis Lake. The whole landscape is a mix of modern buildings and parking lots and is a far cry from the historical atmosphere of downtown. Along with some wealthy residential districts, most of the area is occupied by both Tunisian and international companies. Many diplomatic offices have settled here, including the British and the American embassies. Shopping precincts are slowly developing, most notably, imported high-end clothing stores, located in the area of the Carré du Lac. There are also a growing number or coffee houses and restaurants, some of which have a terrace and great view of the lake (such as the restaurant and tea house Biwa, behind the Golden Bowling, open all day long until midnight), and others, like the nice tea house with terrace Le Phuket's near the Lac Palace mall. The district offers also recreation sites: the area surrounding the amusement park Dah Dah Happy Land Entertainment Park is devoted to leisure, where you can find bowling alleys, such as the Golden Bowling and discotheques. The promenade along the lake shore, usually quiet during the week, is busy during the weekend. A couple of quality hotels have also settled in Les Berges du Lac, fit for business travelers who benefit from the proximity to the airport.
