The best nightlife in the world !

Why is the nightlife in Beirut so amazing ? SOBEIRUT finds out ...

Rabih Salloum:

There is definitely a place, a bar, a kind of party for every single type of person. Some of the strengths of the Lebanese nightlife scene is its very creative, its always looking for new ideas and new concepts. Because it’s a small crowd that easily gets bored and so in order to cater to that same crowd you constantly have to come up with new ideas. 

Nabil Hayek:

It’s a country, it’s a culture of people that love to go out. I think we’re good. We’re good in what we do; I think we’re good in creating a beautiful set up and a whole ambiance for these people and I think that people are becoming much more creative and it has also taken our nightlife to a new level. You know? 

Rahib Salloum:

What makes the Beirut nightlife scene very diverse is basically two main things. The first one being that it caters to all kinds of people. Live music lovers, DJ lovers, people who want to go clubbing, people who want to go just enjoy a drink in a bar, people who want to go eat. And at the same time the other aspect for me is the constant novelty and the creativity in terms of new places, new party concepts. 

Nabil Hayek:

You can really find parties everywhere, and all kinds of parties, camping, festivals, food stuff here and there. Beach, mountains, underground, anything. 

Rabih Salloum:

I would say the general, the over all experience is a very intense one because of a lot of 
components that come together. 

Michelle Elefteriades:

There is no regulation for closing time so as long as we have clients we can open till next morning. Some places used to give breakfast, this was very trendy in the 70’s. My father had a club and they used to give manoushi the kind of Lebanese pizza at 5am. 

Rabih Salloum:

I feel that what makes the nightlife scene here have this specific pulse if you will or vibrance to it is the fact that it’s a small city. You always have someone to pick you up you always have a friend who is going to a party. There is nothing better than being drunk when you’re favorite song comes on and then you look around and you’re surrounded by people you love. And you have a lot of that here. 

Michelle Elefteriades:

The music scene is very diversified because the Lebanese people are open to other cultures. You have people who sing in French, people who sing in English, of course in Arabic. And also you have the other minorities you have Kurdish musicians and singers you have Armenians, you have Greek. All those minorities who found shelter in Lebanon they kept their traditions and they kept alive their music, their culture. 

Nabil Hayek:

We always had top clubs in the top 10 world wide and for all the friends I know that have come here and have experienced the nightlife here and the clubs we’ve had I think they end up having the best times of their lives. I think that they’re up for a hell of a party. I’m sure.
