Choueifat is a suburb southeast of Beirut in Lebanon. The town is a Druze and Christian enclave that lies on the eastern side of Beirut's airport. The local population of the city is made up of mostly Druze and Christians, but in the last 25 years, many Beirutis have moved in to escape the capital's high rents, while many southerners have found Choueifat a good alternative to the crowded southern suburb known as Dahieh.
The first mayor of Choueifat was Fareed nabhan Choukier in 1893. Its current mayor as of 2010 is Melhem Najib El-Souki.
