    Located at one of the most renowned hotels across the Middle East, , Whisky Mist Beirut has recently arrived to Beirut straight from London. Back in London, Whisky Mist has developed itself to become the place to be seen! With its guests ranging from actors, singers and even British royalty, it is spreading its culture on to the Lebanese nightlife. Whisky Mist Beirut is undoubtedly rising to success in Beirut as it has already attracted many local high level profiles, while also introducing many guest stars brought from abroad, such as Melody (Pussycat Dolls), Dj Poet (Black Eyed Peas), and Girls Roc (Britain's Got Talent).

    Nova Club: Live music, karaoke, darts and even Salsa nights

    Nova might not be situated in the very popular Gemayze street, but it's surely better equipped to host concerts of local bands and salsa evenings, as well as for calmer nights playing pool and darts.

    We've enjoyed an alternative concert with the local band Kordz there in November 2010 and I understand there are weekly similar event. Don't miss out on this band if you're in town!!!

    Fridays are dedicated to the salsa community and the parties are attended by most of the instructors in Beirut.

    Quadrangle: Ideal place for live music

    by Delia_Madalina Updated Nov 23, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beirut, Quadrangle
    3 more images

    As you enter the pub, you’ll feel as if you’re stepping into a museum or an art gallery: the walls are covered in paintings and marble art works, highlighted by dim colorful lights.

    If the day is a Monday, you’ll be greeted by the sounds of a jazz band playing live. You’ll congratulate yourself for choosing this place when you see four different age generations dancing and drinking. Ex-pats and locals meet like one big happy family.

    Friday is the rock night with BUTTERFLY band playing. The band has a story of its own: with three brothers and their friends that have been playing together since university, which is a big deal considering they’re not in their early 20’s anymore :). Successful people that take the time every Friday to share their passion for music on rhythms of Royal Hunt, Carlos Santana, Pink Floyd etc. You will feel like every one of them is the owner of the place as they welcome you when you enter the pub (the bassist is the real owner). What stroke me the most was the bond they create with the audience: everyone is welcomed to sing or play an instrument on stage. Sometimes it happens that the whole band is replaced by members of the audience.
    It’s a shame they don’t have live bands all through the week but they also organize karaoke nights every once in a while.

    It’s THE place to chill with friends - more than 15 pool tables ,snooker, baby football, darts, with the great background music all through the evening varying from blues to classic rock and alternative rock.

    The nights at Quadrangle are very entertaining: you’ll leave with a great mood and feel the urge to come back the next evening. And if you’re lucky enough and my fiancé, Ahmad, is in the country, you’ll hear the best guitarist in my life playing. :)

  • Nightlife in Lebanon: Nightlife in Lebanon

    by Jimblacker Written Aug 31, 2010

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During my last trip to Beirut, I found it very difficult to find nice places to go to, or even get tips to where to go, dine, drink or party, it seemed to me that the usual places always pop up on people mouths until a nice AUB grad student gave me the best tip to locate venue and get feedbacks on places in Lebanon. It was quite short simple and straight to the point. He told me all I had to do is login to www.beirutna.com, so at night when I came back to my hotel I did! And this site quickly became my new best friend and guide during my vacations to Beirut.

    It had it all, feedbacks, reviews, pictures, and most importantly diversity and genuine information.

    I would advise anyone who is visiting this beautiful country that is Lebanon, to use this amazing guide www.beirutna.com

    Music Hall: Excellent live music cabaret theatre!

    by MM212 Updated Feb 6, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Music Hall's stage (fuzzy photo taken with phone)

    One of the most original nightclubs I have ever seen, Music Hall is a 1960s cinema converted into a concert hall/cabaret theatre. Comfortable loungy booths replaced the old theatre seats in the middle of the hall, while dinner tables occupy the bottom area facing the stage. Up top is a long bar for those looking to stand and dance. A crowd of very fashionably dressed men and women, determined to have a fantastic time, usually attends. On stage, different bands play live music consisting of an eclectic mix of "east meets west." The club has an amazing atmosphere where dancing on tables is de rigueur after a certain hour -- it is a lot of fun! Friday night has the better show - it starts at 11pm. A reservation in advance is a must!

    Rue Gouraud: More popular than rue Monot

    Rue Gouraud by night - Dec 09
    2 more images

    Full of bars and late night restaurants, rue Gouraud and its side streets in Gemmayzé are where local Beirutis go out at night. The thoroughfare, rue Gouraud, with its numerous small bars, has taken over rue Monot in Achrafieh as the most popular night spot. The street stretches eastwards from the edge of Downtown Beirut and Saifi Village.

    Rue Monot: Plenty of choices

    by MM212 Updated Jan 31, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although now somewhat overshadowed by Gemmayzé's nightlife, Rue Monot still draws a crowd on weekend nights. The sloped narrow one-way street in Achrafieh contains a large cluster of trendy bars and lounges, among them Crystale and Shah. A good-looking fashionable young crowd gathers inside and outside the bars, while a queue of fancy cars slowly streams down the street until the early hours on a typical Friday or Saturday night. Rue Monot was once king of nightlife, but since around 2005, Gemmayzé has slowly taken over.

    Bar ThreeSixty: 360º Views over Beirut

    by MM212 Updated Jan 31, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bar ThreeSixty

    Located on the roof of the newly opened le Gray Hotel, Bar 360 is one of the few actual bars/lounges in downtown (Beirut Central District). As its name indicates, the circular lounge has 360 degree panoramic views over Beirut. Bad blue lighting aside, it is a great place for a pre-dinner drink or a post-dinner digestif, especially for those seeking a calmer place with no one dancing on tables!

    Centrale: Trendy Beirut Bar/Lounge

    by MM212 Updated Jan 31, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Centrale by day

    An amazing space, Centrale is housed in an old war-damaged building specifically reengineered for the purpose. Steel and metal reinforced the structure, converting it into an architectural intrigue and a trendy restaurant-bar. The dining room is on the ground floor, while the bar, which is only accessible by lift, is on the upper floor inside a long metal tube whose roof opens up in clement weather for amazing views of Beirut by night. Excellent music is played and a well-dress crowd attends. Go there for a drink or two!

  • Cherry's Pub: Rock & Roll in the Land of Milk and Honey

    by lallakahina Written Jun 12, 2009

    For a real taste of the Beirut rock scene, Cherry's Pub is not to be missed. It was recently renovated and its subterranean atmosphere, muted lighting and wooden décor create the flavor of a 19th century Parisian boulevard. The pub hosts a mix of international and local bands, including rock, metal, folk, reggae, jazz, classical, and oriental, among others. The place opens at noon daily, and coffee and drinks are served all the way into the wee hours of the night. Some of the weekly events include open mic on Tuesdays, karaoke on Sundays, and the classic rock cover band Communion on Fridays. You’re sure to come across some of Lebanon's best rock musicians, be it on stage or at the bar.

    RAI: Moroccan terror!!!

    by azizada Written May 29, 2008

    Situated in Mono Street, Achrafieh, Beirut's most popular entertainment centre, Rai is one of many night clubs you can walk into.
    I sadly was invited there for a birthday party, and the nightmare started, my friends invited me and literally DRAGGED me there over an over.
    The place is a DUMP, cramped, and the music SUCKS BIG TIME!!! The dj seriously needs music updates...please anything from this decade. when a dj repeats a song more than three times a night, you know there is something wrong!!!
    The Moroccan theme in RAI is evident in every aspect of the decor, however it stops there. you wonder whey this theme was chosen when its totally not...club like. its more like a Morrocan restuarant ( or better cafe) than a club.

    I vowed never to set step in that dump that is filled with nothing but whores and drunks.

    Dress Code: If ur a female....less is better
    If ur a male.......just have female on ur hand and ur in.

    just dress casual

    Buddha Bar: It's in Beirut too!

    by MM212 Updated Aug 26, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of Beirut's many hot nightspots, Buddha Bar is no disappointment. It is part of the very successful exclusive chain of Buddha Bars, which began in Paris in the 90's. It is a restaurant, bar and lounge playing great lounge and ethnic music. A large Buddha statue dominates the centre of the dining room amid red velvet and silk surroundings. Go there for dinner or a late drink.
