Music Hall is a cabaret-style music hall theater specializing in live entertainment and cultural showbiz.
Music Hall has rapidly become Lebanon's premier live music venue and one of its trendiest nightlife spots. Described by international media as “the place where the heart of world fusion music beats”, Music Hall is a unique live music venue started by the Elefreriades brothers in the early 2000’s, which has become iconic in no time for its ground-breaking and distinctive concept.
Converted from an old cinema, it hosts short live world fusion musical acts unveiling talents from around the globe in a series of widespread stage performances ranging from Latin, Gipsy, French, and Oriental to Opera, Rock, Reggae, and many other music genres. Allowing up to 650 seated people, with up to 18 artists and bands performing each night, it has become one of Beirut’s most iconic and legendary live music and a cultural hub, making it a must-visit for locals and tourists alike.
It has also hosted many famous international artists such as Nigel Kennedy, Roberto Fonseca, Paolo Fresu, Jane Birkin, Olivia Ruiz, Bernard Lavilliers, Yann Tiersen, Grand Corps Malade Souad Massi, etc, offering its public high-end musical and cultural experiences. A huge bar at the top overlooks the stage at the far end, with descending levels of sofas and tables, and seating beneath it.
A sort of cabaret-show environment and red dominating the interior decoration elements, Music Hall is one of the few places where you can watch bands as you eat a luscious dinner and drink bottles of blue label alcohol. Music Hall is packed with people of all ages who are up for a night of original and different music and performance, but make sure you are dressed up and over 22.
