Entertainment & Nightlife in Lebanon

Lebanon and especially Beirut, is famous for the excellent nightlife. The choice can vary from international nightclubs such as the famous Buddha Bar, to many local clubs that cater for everyone. Nightlife in Beirut is non-stop. Discos, dinner-dancing, bars and pubs of every variety invite visitors to join the fun.

Monnot is the area in Beirut most associated with nightlife. This is where you will find well-dressed locals dancing in mega-clubs and disco bars to the tunes of local and international DJs. Gemayzeh has also become another serious hot spot for those seeking a more eclectic, bohemian and intimate experience, a more underground vibe. Some of the venues don't get going until 2am.

The downtown area is popular with tourists, particularly Arabs from the Gulf.

The cool clubbing spots vary by the day but a classic is to see the B018 in the Karantina area of Beirut, or the various clubs at Monot Street.

Crystal at Monot Street is the in place at the moment in Beirut. Many Christian Lebanese enjoy frequenting Element in Achrafieh, which rarely plays any Arabic music. For a sample of clubs that locals frequent, Al Mandaloun, also in Ashrafieh, focuses more on Arab-pop music than Western dance music.

The Casino du Liban with its luxurious gaming rooms, restaurants and caberet, in Maameltain, is another favourite place for visitors.

Broummana, a scenic hillside town with cafés, restaurants and discos, located 23km east of Beirut, is also humming on the weekends. In winter, the ski resorts, such as Faraya-Mzaar, accommodate the jet-set crowd.

In the summer, there are large festivals extending over several days or weeks in Baalbek, Jbail (Byblos), Beiteddine and Sour (Tyre) with big name acts (both Lebanese and international performers). The festivals create a lively atmosphere in the cities that host them.

Many live concerts are held throughout the year with international musicians and DJ's. Beirut has hosted some of the world’s biggest names in Dance music such as Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Nick Warren, Anthony Pappa, Sasha, John Digweed, Danny Howells, Steve Lawler and Tiesto. To stay up to date on Beirut's nightlife scene, visit any Virgin Megastores branch to ask about any upcoming events.
